First English Lesson

Hi!
I have rode western my whole life. I love the look of dressage and riding collected. So basically I finally decided to take an English lesson...I wanted to learn more on posting. Also I wanted to figure out where my feet go. Which I did find out.
Any way here is a pic from it. ( I tought western lessons at this barn before going back to school full time).

I do know my hips look further back than should be but its how my saddle is...its a really hard slant. So I know even though its different from western but I need to stay rurther forward.

Glad to see that your converted!! But your english will help your western and your western will help your english.

I can see both pictures now, I don't know why I couldn't see it earlier. Sorry for the inconvenience...

You look very nice. Leaning how to post is lots of fun. Lol!

Tempest, it could be loading so you couldn't see it. I think it happened to me once or twice too.

not trying to be critical, but you need to bring you feet back

If you want a stable friendship, get a horse.

So how did you like the launching pad known as the english saddle? Some western riders I know call them Chicklets since there's nothing there compared to western.

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.
