What are your thoughts on horses competing in more than one discipline? Does it help them improve or hinder their progress?

Hello Shannon, I think it depends on the disciplines. Maybe a dressage horse would loose some of his skills if he compete in barrel racing for example. But it couldn't be bad for a jumping horse to compete in dressage sometimes, it could improve his progress. Anyway, even if you don't compete in diverse disciplines, I think it is important to diversify the work at home, to be sure to not bore him :)
