Day Nineteen: A discipline you would like to try
Honestly? I want to try all of them someday! Since I really can’t pick just one, I will tell you the 5 disciplines that I am DYING to try.
Saddle Seat. I love it! I did take some saddle seat lessons when Gen was hurt and they were fun! I would love to try my hand at it again. I think that the habit is so cool looking! And I love the feeling that you are flying when you go down the long side.
Barrel Racing. I know that I would totally fit in to the barrel racing world. I LOVE bright colors and going FAST. Barrel racing is not popular by me…at all. I don’t even know if I ever will get to try it for real ever, but a girl can dream right?
Endurance riding. I can’t see myself ever doing 100 miles, but I do think that it sounds amazing to ride 25 miles through the woods on a horse that you love and trust. I think my lack of direction would make this a dangerous discipline for me!
Eventing. I have actually never done an event. I think that my dressage background and love of riding outdoors would be perfect. I don’t know how brave I am anymore, but this is me day dreaming so I think that eventing sounds like fun!
Reining. I think that this is my dream discipline. Just like barrel racing, it is just not in my area so I don’t think I will ever get to try it. They call it cowboy dressage. I clearly can ride a pattern. I would love to be able to do a pattern, dress normally, and be able to make money. I know that dressage is not the right fit for me, but I think that reining might be. Too bad I will never get to find out…at least for as long as I live where I do.
