wow really? That's dumb. I used to get made fun of constantly at my old stable for riding English. They told me I'm a pansy and that only pansies ride English. I asked them if they could do it and they said no because the saddles look uncomfortable. I've come to the conclusion that they won't leave the comfort of a western saddle. And they suck at riding.

"You shouldn't hold a western saddle by the horn, it could break."

o.o Excuse me?

Thank you for feeding us years of lies. Thank you for the wars you left us to fight. Thank you for the world you ruined overnight. But we'll be fine, yeah we'll be fine.

haha! The horn is made for use. Think roping saddle....if the saddle of a roping saddle was fragile do you think it would be used for roping a heavy calf? uh no.

Then wouldn't it be better to find that out on the ground and off the horse before you try roping something?

A Level 3 Parelli told me my twh needs someone like Parelli himself to work with him. I guess I made a big mistake. I started the horse at liberty with no halter or rope on him. It's funny how well this has worked out for doing it all wrong.

I showed a pic of the English saddle, I got for my daughter, to a co- worker who tried to convince me it was an unsafe saddle because she could slide off the front of it since it didn't have that handle stopper thingy to keep her in the saddle....

I had someone tell that I shouldn't go not the pasture with my gelding if I was having "girly times" because he'd try to mount me.
