Once you decide in which direction you want to go, then look for riders doing that and start hanging around. If it is showing, go to shows, if it is endurance, then attend some meets, etc. Read - a lot. Watch who is winning and how their horses look afterwards. Ask a lot of questions and you will begin to get an idea about who is doing it by the book and who is not doing it well at all. Make friends with people in that discipline.
That is how I would do it - and did do it when I switched to Western from English and started Team Penning.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
