Thanks so much! I don't know a whole lot about Dressage but it's so pretty and I'd LOVE to try it! :) Specs has a kinda short attention span, but I'm sure he could do some very basic dressage stuff.
Eventually I would like to do hunter/jumpers!
Another question... Is it illegal neckrein in English riding? ok maybe not illegal, but is it frowned upon? Specs can do both neckreining and plow reining, but I'm just curious ;).
Thanks SO much!
From my own experience, I usually see English riders riding with direct rein because some of the tasks you get your horse to do you need each rein independently like giving certain aids. But if you're schooling English, you could start neck reining but I think you should teach yourself and your horse to work with direct reining.
But I'm not a professional nor a show girl so you'd have to ask one of the more experienced English riders.
