I have always just rode western, but decided I wanted to try something different so I travel once a week to a lesson barn and am taking some English lessons. I know that once a week is minimal, but all I can do until it starts to stay light out later. Anyway, I feel like I am starting all over again. I didn't think it would be so hard switching over but it is. I find my western habits get in the way of my hands and learning the direct indirect rein and having contact is all new. I know that I have improved, but I thought I would catch on and get it a lot quicker. Is this normal to feel like I'm starting to learn to ride all over again?
