He doesnt neck rein , and even though we are working on it her instructor has some reservations about her riding him in a shank bit and being to heavy on the reins.
She really wants to ride him western but the 4h rules wont allow using a snaffle or riding 2 handed so we have been tossing the idea around about her riding english in 4H walk/trot .
So my question is what kind of an English saddle should I start looking for that is good for a youth/open and 4H shows?
Also what English attire should we be considering , jods with paddock boots?
Any insight would be helpful , as you can see I do not know much about showing English . My daughter is 10 yrs old.
On a side note: Her 4H leader is getting me a copy of the 4H show rule book too.
