having second thoughts again...arg
Since my western saddle didn't fit Sonny, and I've had to ride in an English saddle since none of the barn owner's western saddle's fit Sonny.
Well I've noticed that the English saddle does use more leg muscle and strength...and I'd really like to build that up (I had good leg muscles once, but since I started riding western all the muscle I had was lost.
Sonny would be great either way...we have bonded so much that I'd trust him blindfolded and bareback.
I can't show him English due to he hates the noseband (he won't collect, nor would he go faster than a trot...silly boy), so I'd still show him western whichever I chose to ride in for pleasure.
