So I have ridden western all my life and only had english lessons once. And it wasn't pleasant, so I fell off my horse twice. The first time I landed on my feet by his shoulder it basically looked like I was going to mount. Second time they laid two barrels down along with two small pine trees and my horse did fine but he had to give a lil more ...mumph to get over and don't ask me how it happened but my head and my left arm ended up between his front legs. Luckily my horse stopped and I was all light headed saying, "Hey Prince! What are you doing riding me?! I'm supposed to be riding you!" I was esp angry with the teacher, she didn't come over to see if I was alright she just kept saying "THAT IS A WONDERFUL HORSE!" I'm thinkin, "I know he is now what about me!" And once I was back in line my friends said if Prince kept running his back feet would have probably hit my head.
So after severall years I have been thinkin aout taking dressage. And I know its hard but I really like a challenge, and I think it would be goiid to know both english and western I would also like to learn jumping properly along with dressage
So do I go for it? Or do I just need to learn english first?
