Well currently, I show all Western. I am planning on taking up English riding as well.

My horse, however, still needs work with both. :)

WHATS REALITY?

I used to do western pleasure until my trainer said you have to do a posting trot before you lope. I guess I loved english and I am now all english. Of course that was a long time ago. I do both jumping and the english flat classes, but I picked jumping.lol

It was to build up my leg strength. I thought the same thing, but it worked wonders.lol Plus she was a very serious instructor. I would ride for 2 hours at least everyday. I never took a break, but that's also how I wanted to be. i'm a riding maniac! I still even ride like that.

Oh, I though she was telling you that's how it had to be in western pleasure.

I mean, if it was just for your own good, thats whatever.
