Thanks. Lol. The first time I rode in that saddle was... interesting, to say the least. I, being my normal self, chose a windy day and my girl was nervous... I nearly fell off about a thousand times over measly little spooks... it was pretty fun, but until I can ride in that saddle better, I'm not going to ride her in it when she's spooky again.
When I looked at the pictures, I was amazed at how good Nathan looked riding English. He's like a natural born rider, the first time I ever put him on a horse (I taught him to ride) the mare he was on spooked and took off at a full tilt gallop... I didn't think he would be able to hang on, but he did and after that he tried to come over as often as he could (which wasn't all that often he could get away and come out) to ride.
I've only ridden in that saddle about seven times and I've had it for a good eight months now... I'm just more comfortable in a western saddle, but I'm definitely going to get out and ride in the English saddle more... I hate being showed up by someone who I taught to ride... and I especially hate being showed up by someone on MY horse, lol.
