Juuuuust messing with ya people ha ha ha, funny though right?!

Really I ride English because I grew up in an area where that is all that was offered. Everyone was into showing, dressage, jumping and eventing and I eventually found my niche in eventing. I loved learning about three different aspects of riding, how they are inter-related. Plus I found the people to be very down to earth, supportive and fun.

Now that I live in Texas and am surrounded by western riding, I think it is amazing! I went the the Houston rodeo at the start of the year and loved it, I think barrel racing is definately my favourite and if I ever get a chance I would love to learn.

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.

Horses want direction. They want leadership, they actually don't enjoy it at all when the leader is absent. You both just completely proved my point about not understanding what I was mentioning, thank you.

No, most people don't ride for the horse. Believe me, it took a lot of bruised limbs and a bruised ego to figure out that the more you give, the more you get.

However, I personally like to look at all sides of a situation before saying that someone is off the wall because they see it at a different way than I do, I won't comment on anything if I haven't been there before.

How about this to make everyone happy - I ride english and western.

I train in dressage but show Hunter Pleasure and ride western on the trails. I love the classy look and style of dressage & english riding. I have two breeds of horses, a QH for the trails and a Friesian for the show ring. :)
