I am a digital painter. I switched from oils to digital when I found that the effects I could achieve far surpassed anything I could do in oils alone. I can, and frequently do mix the effects of oils and water colour on one canvas and can then draw the effect of charcoal on top of both.

It depends on the situation, the training level of the horse, the rider’s abilities, and the goals that you are trying to achieve with your horse as to which method will work best.
