Buying my first English saddle- help??
Hi, Ive ridden western all my life and I've decided to take a leap and learn English! I'm taking my horse out on Sunday and trying out a couple saddles to make sure I find one that fits me and her, but I've never ridden English before (well,once). I just had a couple questions, hoping someone here can help out!
How long do I let the stirrups out to? What is the proper posture for English, to help me keep my seat? And what's a good way to transition my horse into English? I'm looking for more communication between us, as right now she has been off for two years due to a pregnancy, and then she got an abcess and was lame. She's a pretty hot horse though, and quite often wants to just run, and that's it.. Thanks!
