Hi! Well, a little background information. I have always ridden western (mainly just trails. No WP or anything like that.) I found my first horse about two years ago, I love him to death. I couldn't ask for a better first horse! He is about 14 hands and one hunk of a hansome Morgan. I've had several lessons here and there, but I've done a lot of learning by myself through books and the internet. Anyway, lately I've really become interested in a lot of the English type stuff. I really enjoy jumping, so I was thinking some low level eventing. (I know that I would not be able to just start jumping my horse because I feel like it. Eventing takes alot of work.) I also really enjoy the concepts of dressage. My only problem.. well one of several, is I'm in rural kansas. Everything is either a QH or a Paint and its really hard to find a really good dependable english trainer. Infact, I'm pretty sure there isn't even one around here. My other issue is the english saddles are quite foreign to me. My horse is very wide and goes in a wide treed western saddle. So what type, brand of english saddle to I look for? I'm really curious, and I really am interested in learning, I just don't know where to start.
Any advice would be appricieated! Thanks! I apologize for spelling mistakes. Really not my strongest asset.
