Watch this video and see that switching from English to western and the other way around can be just as hard to 'ride' when it is not your discipline. Even at 'higher' levels.

I think you illustrated my point perfectly, that anyone who chooses to discipline themselves when riding horses can master any style.

TroubledTB - I've never had a formal "lesson", although plenty of instruction from my mother and books and such, yet I ride English - well, I suppose you could call it dressage if you wanted to, as my mom knows mostly dressage principles. So, Hi! You've just met someone who rides English without even one formal paid lesson! *wink*

Ok, I've started watching the video - who are those riders and the horses? Just curious...the Western rider made me think of Clinton Anderson, but how many Western dudes wear those hats?!

Ha ha, sounds good! It'd take me a whole day to get there, though, and I can't drive! Boo hoo!
