Hello, I would like to know everything you can tell me about leadline in an English saddle. This girl has done six leadline classes before in a Western saddle (She did fantastic). This is our first time in the English tack. I would like you guys to give us some pointers!
Other questions of mine..
What should I wear (The handler)? - I have all my English gear - Field boots, tan breeches, show shirt, hunt coat, riding gloves, hair net, and riding helmet.
What she is wearing - Black lace-up paddock boots, tan breeches, show shirt, hunt coat, riding gloves, and a helmet. Everything fits.
We both match - Pink show shirt, black hunt coat, and black boots.
What does the judge look for from her AND I?
The horse she will be riding will be a well behaved 7 year old Quarter Pony.
*Important* How do I tie English stirrups -My saddle is a 15 1/2 inch saddle, it holds you in pretty well I would say. It feels like a 15' though. Anyway, I need to make the stirrups reach her level. How do I tie my stirrups?!
Tell me EVERYTHING you know. It will all be helpful. Thank you so much! We both appreciate it greatly.
