Thinking Of Starting English?
I've been riding for around seven years, and the first I ever rode was at a Hunter/Jumper school. I rode English for about three years, and then I started looking for my own horse. Unfortunately, when you live in Rural North Carolina, not many trained, good-for-a-first-horse horses are English. I had to switch to Western (although I tried desperately to ride him English; he fought me every step of the way). Since then, I Barrel Raced up until last year, and now I've started Western Pleasure. And yes, it's satisfying, but most of my friends are English, and it's just kind of awkward when we go riding (since I had to sell my horse) and I ride their horse in an English saddle, and I look really gawky.
The point is, it's been crossing my mind a lot of either beginning English lessons or switching altogether.
What should I do?
If you're not practicing, someone, somewhere is, and when you meet him, he will win.
