I have been working with my horse for 6 years to be a hunter. He is a pinto saddlebred cross. My friend wants me to show saddleseat with her this season. Can I do both with him?

There is a hunt seat division within saddleseat. but hunter/jumper and saddleseat won't work as two different disciplines. The requirements such as headset and posture are just too different.
Saddle seat and Hunters are almost complete opposites and require very different things from you and your horse. Doing both with one horse at the same time may not work:/
