    3 yr/o western to english training

    So I'm one step near buying a 3 yr/o gelding. He's currently ridden in western tack and I own english tack.

    So any ideas on getting him use to english-style?
    He's ridden in loose reins, and kinda wondering why I was using my leg on him while test riding him the other day.

    He is still young and doing walk and trots and little bits of canters once in awhile (the owner doesn't want to blow him out too early).

    So any ideas or weblinks would be great. Thank you.

    If he's that young and green he isnt going to have a lot of issues making the switch from western to english. Also, western uses tons and tons of leg, more so then english so if he's wondering why you are using your legs, then he's just green. You shouldnt have issues really.... should be an easy switch...

    You wont have any issues with switching... He is young and green enough that he really is "stuck" in his ways. I use tons of leg when I ride western as well

    Yeah, I think he should be fine with the switch. ;)
