    LOL!! My daughter is the same way - she loves the fair! It seems to be the highlight of her year. Snohomish County has a 2-day junior section and they have both western and english classes over those days. However, it if meant staying an extra day Anna would be all over riding western!! Gotta love truly horse crazy girls, huh?

    Has your daughter ridden english before? Maybe you could borrow a pair of paddock boots for just a ride or two so she could see what she thinks. You never know, she may hate it and they you're off the hook! If she likes it and wants to do some english showing that could influence your horse purchase. My daughter prefers english but has only ridden western a handful of times. She would like to show on western day at a 4-H show when she is tall enough to fit the stirrups on our saddle. Once she rode one of the 4-H members mothers western pleasure show horse but it was a bit too slow for my daughter. She is used to our horse that has plenty of go so she was not amused with a horse that had plenty of slow!

    Anna would like to ride western but our saddle doesn't fit her quite yet (stirrup length) and her horse is not a western mover. As soon as she fits the saddle I'm sure she'll give it a try. Luckily she isn't too concerned about how she places! She's not very competitive by nature. I think that's why she loves dressage - she's competing against herself and has a specific pattern to focus on. It would be fun to meet up at a show next year!

    We did a show at Black Raven last spring. It was a small show but lots of fun! My daughter rides English in 4-H and she showed at the 4-H performance shows and fair. I think we might try and go to a schooling show at Eagle Mtn. in Arlington over the winter. We have been to a couple of dressage schooling shows in Bridle Trails in Kirkland. She fell in love with dressage and really wants to do more. Personally I like the schooling shows because they are a lot less stressful! I'll keep you posted on our show schedule for next year. It's fun to meet another mom of a young rider in the area!
