Unhappy I can never remember how to saddle!

English or Western?

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.

lsj, how many lessons have you had so far? I have no doubt you'll memorize it - it just takes longer sometime.

Don't worry you'll soon get the hang of it :). Watch tons of videos, and then you'll realize it's not that hard. Good luck.

Don't listen to Allison and mildot! Stay with western! :) Don't worry, it took me a while to figure it out too, but once you have it figured out, you won't forget :)
