    I would say if they teach western try western its a whole different thing and it might be fun you could also try to ride bareback IDK what people in scotland do in lessons but I also don't take private in my lessons we all switch horses through the lesson. Also if you really don't like it find a different stable.

    Iluvjunior,I don't think I could learn western cause we don't have western saddles here but I rode western on holiday and I loved it but I was in america when I did that lol,considering a different stable but they are quite far away.Bareback sounds fun too!

    Sometimes riding schools buy horses that misbehave on purpose in order to teach you better riding. Plus it's hard to keep horses from becoming jaded when they do the same thing every day. I've ridden close to 60 school horses and (once I got past beginner level) only about 6 of them were very responsive and had no issues of any kind. The school I went to that was my favorite would take horses with any bad habit except rearing.

    Riding crappy horses is part of learning to ride, for two reasons. If you decide to become a serious competitor, competitive horses always have some spirit. They need to in order to succeed. Even if you eventually buy a really nice horse, you might someday be in a situation that makes the horse act up. School horses are supposed to prepare you for that.

    No, you shouldn't quit but I would talk the that stable about seeing with they will work with you in anyway at all, than if you won't. You should move to another barn until you either run out of barn or fit one the fits.
