To those of you who do not know, I have been in a few bad horse riding accidents that have left my body broken and bruised, as well as my confidence.
I simply adore horses and love riding but I have become quite nervous around them. It is hard to explain but I'm hoping you believe me when I say this is something I want to do, nerves and all.
I will be going through some changes however. I've only rode western before but now that I am changing stables, the instructor there majors in all english riding styles.
She wants to start me off in a dressage saddle. She told me over the phone that it has a very deep seat, similar to a western saddle, but you lose the comfort of the horn. Although, she did mention she does have western saddles there just in case I don't feel comfortable with the english saddle.
Anyways, I'm very excited and just needed to share my excitement with people who understand!
I'll update this thread once my lesson is finished and hopefully, I will even have photos to show you! You will probably get a good laugh as I can only imagine how terrible my position will be.
