My name is Dakota Martins and I live in the U.S. I've always LOVED horses - I practically live and breathe them. Unfortunately, where I live there are not many places for a thirteen year old girl to ride. I have been reading, studying and watching films all about riding, and I know the basics. I know tons of information about horses and I've contacted several riders with questions.
I am interested in learning to ride english. Jumping fascinates me and this summer my parents are letting me take some lessons.
Could someone please give me pointers on the basics of English riding? What do I need to know before I slip into the saddle? And what are the necessities of riding English?
Please and thank you!
