English riding lessons?
I have been riding for 5 years (2 years English, 3 Western) and I am currently doing Western, but I really want to do English, too. I miss jumping like crazy and that is what I want to do so badly right now. I have an old English saddle that I might get repaired and use, but ride Western in it.
Well anyways, I am doing Western lessons weekly right now but I really want to do some English lessons. I do kind of want to go back to English (not saying I don't like Western), but I really love the barn I'm at right now and I couldn't bear to leave it. My parents can't afford for me to do both and I wouldn't ask to. I don't know whether I should do an English lesson but still do Western or what?! What do y'all think I should do?
You're gonna ride western in an English saddle? I don't understand that bit.
Does the stable you're at now not give English lessons as well as the western?
Oh and I would like to add:
this is the second time I've wanted to do English again while doing Western, last time was sometime last year.
Sorry about the confusion, I meant that I was going to ride normally like I would in a Western saddle but in an English saddle. I don't neck rein, I direct rein in a snaffle and I was going to do the same in the English saddle. I was basically going to ride the same way I ride in a Western saddle just in an English saddle.
And no, they don't give English lessons.
I just feel really torn because I really don't want to leave the barn I'm at right now but I want to do English. Maybe I'll talk to them about something...
Ride both english & western then? Theres nothing wrong in having two coaches. Find a barn that teaches english, and keep on with your western.
-Take less western lessons and and use the gap to take English lessons.
-find a way to pay for the English lessons yourself

You could take a lesson at both barns every two weeks so that you would be taking one western lesson and one English lesson during the week, and then it would be like your parents are still paying for a western lesson every week. Do you have a job?
