Try to release the reins quite a bit more.. in english you are "on the bit", western you are not.
In western, the horse carries itself.. you shouldn't be pulling on their mouths at all.
In western it's all about "long" and "low". You want their neck to be long, and really low.
To get them to lower their head, lower your hands down, tug gently with the left hand, then the right, then the left, then right.. sort of like a half-halt, but with one hand instead of 2.
Slowly, the horse's head will edge down :)
Lean back, and sit deep ;)
Looks like you had fun!
i know lol, im just getting used to her. she was trying me out a bit lolz. kept trying to go back to the gate xD
Of course! I was just giving you pointers for in the long run :d
im possibly going to be part of their games team this season on Blue, shes going to be Amy's pony next season.
look pretty good to me u sit her well and she is a very pretty horse
hehe, also the stirrups on the saddle where much too long for my liking, we made like 2 new holes and they are still too long and i was finding it hard to keep my balance totally. lolz
^^ Haha, I know how that goes, mine are on the last hole and they are too long if I ride a narrow horse. Blue is beautiful and it looks like you had lots of fun.
I found out that Blue's siblings have been sold in the USA for around 100K apparently. Cool as eh? =D
Awesome. You look pretty good for your first time ; ) That's a gorgeous roan, too. I'd also like to salute you for trying out the "other" way to ride...I don't think I could hop on an English horse and look that good.
Did you find the saddle wiggled around a lot more and you had trouble balancing it? I've only ridden western, and this girl (English for 3 years) got up on my saddle on a horse I was looking at. I had no problem with the saddle girthed a little loose (tiny horse!) but she was all over the place and kept thinking the saddle was going all the way over (which was impossible, there was a breast collar >.>)
