Well I have got to admit the English bug has bit me pretty bad. I ride my horse English 2x a week plus a lesson with my AMAZING coach once week. Yesterday I bought my a collegiate close contact saddle, LOVE it. Its just all so exciting. I don't know what I want to do, dressage? Eventing? English pleasure? H/J? HUS? There's just so many options. I feel so challenged, yes I love western still, reining, western pleasure.... I just feel like I am really improving myself and hopefully opening some doors.
Last summer I got a old free English saddle, thinking: whatever, wing it at the riding club fun days, pick up some more ribbons. Who would of thought it would become a burning desire! Champ seems to enjoy the change of pace too.
Thanks to those who read, I am just thrilled.
