She has been riding her horse for about a year, riding in a western saddle although her horse really isnt a "western " horse.
She has an instructor that has been very good for her as far as controlling her horse and she has mastered trotting both ways of the ring and feels pretty confident on him.
My daughter is in 4H and really would like to show him in some fun shows and 4H shows (walk/trot) and feel until we work on the western neck reining and switching the bit etc...that English would be a better choice for her horse. My daughter was reluctant at first to switch from her western saddle to an English saddle but she is coming around and liking the idea. She even picked out some cute half chaps and colorful pad for her new riding endeavor.
I don't know all the deatails yet but I know another instructor who teaches at a barn with an indoor while we do not have access to one so this would be a chance for her to work on herself a little more . I have to beg, borrow and steal for use of a trailer ..lol so trailering her horse to the indoor really isnt an option right now. I think that it is important for her to ride her own horse too so maybe she can take lessons from both instructors? That kinda brings another situation however, each instructor teaches differently....
