My husband wants to start taking lessons - he's really only interested in learning the basics (as he puts it, "balance and posture and stop and go and different speeds," hehe). I could probably teach these things to him but those of you who are married will probably understand the appeal of leaving it to the professionals! I'm an English rider 99% of the time (actually converted from western) so the barns I'm looking at focus on English disciplines. He's fine with that and is actually interested in learning English- and I think it will be awesome to actually be able to talk to him about riding without having to explain the differences and whatnot. The thing is, he's a big guy (6'2" and maybe ~ 270?). Has anyone actually.. Well.. SEEN a guy that big ride English? He's built like a football player (he was one) with no bum and lots of shoulder. I'm just wondering if he'd be more comfortable in a western saddle? I dunno.. Input anyone?
