    Starting English!

    Hi..I'm new to english but I've got a few people willing to help my pony and I learn how to do it...I don't know ANYTHING about it..I'm a western pleasure girl..but I've gotten bored of just doing one thing...so is there anything I should know?

    Tell me ANYTHING you possibly can to help...
    And by the way..my pony has never done english either except when I jumped her a couple times.

    Oh, and I know how to ost correctly.

    English really isnt that much different then western. I jumped for over two years, and then started running barrels, and as long as you know the basics of riding, you'll be fine.

    i am an english rider but I did learn how to ride western when I was younger.
    english is very different from western, all of the aids are different and if you are aiming to ride english properly i'd suggest that you get a good instructor - just being able to jump doesn't mean you can ride english . . . I've been riding since I was 3, i'm 18 now and i've pretty much done show jumping / hacking all my life.
    at the moment I am learning how to do dressage (properly) as well as schooling my imported show-jumper in dressage and I must say i'm finding it quite difficult !
