I wouldn't say that I switched
, more that I expanded the disciplines I ride. I grew up as a Western trail rider, fell in love with my uncle's reining horses at an early age, started English and dressage a few years back, and started to dabble in cutting last summer. Last year I started training my dressage mare on the barrels, though gaming isn't something that's a primary discipline for me. This year, Excel and I are beginning our eventing career. I'm totally at home in a Western saddle still, but I do a lot more English.
