I rode english for the first time ever today!

I have ridden horses my entire life... Well probably not entire, but since I was 2. I have always ridden western... I decided recently that I want to learn to ride english because I feel bad putting the weight of a western saddle, plus my own weight on my oldest mare. I know she's probably fine, but I am sure she'd be more comfortable with less weight. Who wouldn't be, honestly? So, my trainer came over, and I had my first lesson today :)

I had so much fun! Its a little more complicated with no horn, and you really have to focus on your balance, but I had a blast! I can't wait until next week for my next lesson!

Happy your trying new things :) Just a heads up- if your worried about weight issues, Abetta makes some really light weight (15lb) synthetic saddles for westerners, I'm saving up to get one for my mare (I feel so bad using the 50lb leather saddle some days )

I know, I have looked into them! I kinda just wanted an excuse to learn english ;) but my old lady isn't getting any younger, ao I figure the less weight the better. I only weigh 130ish, so I am sure its not a problem LOL. Her getting older and me learning english are an adventure for both of us. She already knows how to ride english, so its fun to see her "stupid humans!" look as I am going "huh?!" Scratching my head hahaha
