My younger sister just started riding at this barn too, which makes it a little bit harder for me to leave it. I'm sure my mom will make both of us change if one of us does, and I don't know how she feels about the kind of riding and I definitely don't want to make her change if she likes it.
My mom said she and my dad have to agree on switching, but my dad was not excited with the idea of me riding even though he grew up around horses.
I'm also not sure if I should switch so soon. My older sister said I should stay at the saddle seat barn until I can "actually ride it" , but she is a dancer and has barely any horse experience. She also told me that saddle seat and hunt seat were practically the same thing, which they are definitely not.
So what do you think I should do? Switch when I can, or continue at the same barn for my sisters? How should I tell my barn owner I'm leaving? Some facts would also be nice so I can get an answer out of my parents before school starts.
