Alright, here's the deal. I ride strictly western (mostly pleasure and barrels), but I've recently become incredibly bored with western and really, really want to learn to ride english with the eventual goal of learning to jump. However, here's the dilemma: I know about the basics of the basics of the introductory basics of english riding, and have no clue what type of a class I should take. My stable currently offers english riding lessons in hunter hack and hunter under saddle for beginner, intermediate or advanced riders. I know roughly what hunter under saddle is, but haven't the faintest idea about hunter hack (explainations appreciated). So, my question is: Which class would be better for learning the basics of english riding and, eventually, jumping?
Opinions greatly appreciated.
