Yeah, I understand what you're saying ;D I always have fun
And EVERYONE at school that has horses, rides western, its crazy. I probably would of ended up riding western if I hadn't of moved to NJ to live with my grandpa for a year(the year I got bit ;3). I've ridden western before, but nothing beats the thrill of galloping across a field and going over a 3ft log xD
Anyways, back on topic...
I've never braided before, so that's why I was wondering... I don't know if I should start practicing now before the show, or just not braid at all. I want to get more serious this year, now that I have a sound horse, but how serious is too serious, you know? So I think I'll practice my braiding, and see how much he progresses in the next month. I don't think I'll braid him if we're only going to be doing trot poles... I think that's a little much, but if he's to the point of cross rails, i'll probably braid, thanks!
