okay. so i was doing english pleasure....BORING. its just not for offense to anyone else. i have a 3 year old. i trained him so he has the basics. walk-trot-canter-halting-backing-pivots.
well i wanna switch disciplines. but idk what too. something with a thrill. and an english discipline. but i want to do something that he is suited for. because i would never give him up. i do love to jump. and he is an upcoming 4 year old (june). but idk. i cant decide. i jump around ideas of different disciplines. i need helpp!! he is calm, athletic, buit pretty well,he needs something simulating he gets really bored just hacking around a arena. so what do u think me and him(mostly him) are suited for??

Well, if you like to jump, than jump ;)

Just take it super easy for a while with him being so young, you don't want to over do it on his joints.
In the meantime, I'd be doing some dressage work with him. Get him engaged, over his back, supple, round, and learning lateral work (leg yield, turn on the forehand, shoulder in, travers) and trail ride him. Have some fun while also building on his education and strength in preparation for jumping ;)
