Hello Westerners - I feel like I am in Oz!!
I am mainly an English rider, but I am planning on showing Western as well once I get home and up and running. I have ridden Western most my life for the comfort on trails etc - but I have no idea how to SHOW western.
What can you all suggest I should do before I get into it? Lesson? *gag* Watch videos? Any useful suggestions would be greatly appreciated :)
What type of Western are you looking to show?
Western Pleasure and Halter probably - though I already know how to do Halter.
PS... I was looking more for the rider's part, not so much the horse.
I have taken some lessons in Western, many many years ago. Sit up tall, hand straight down behind your leg, hold the reins with index finger in between them. I may not even be remembering that right, but that is about my extent.
You basically got it right there. just look comfy, and have fun. haha
