So this is my first post as I just joined this forum. I went riding this past weekend and had a blast. I spent more time grooming the horse than I did riding, but I actually enjoyed it.
So I know it's probably too soon to call me a member of the sport, but I have aspirations of sticking with it every weekend if possible.
But I do have a couple questions may you could help me answer.
I would like to start taking lessons, I notice some places have private lessons, is this a good way to start?
And I rode western style this weekend, which I felt comfortable with, should I learn both western and english if I take lessons?
Most of all, I would really like to understand more about horse than just riding, do many stables accept volunteer work to learn about maintanence etc?
Thanks for your help
