    Determining Seat Sizes? Other ?'s as well

    Hi guys. After a trip to Montana this past summer to visit the family I have decided to buy myself a western saddle in the nearby future for trail riding. It was so comfy/fun (i'm an English rider). I also took a reining lesson on an experienced schoolhorse. We got to do sliding stops and spins and changes! So fun!! What is the difference between a reining saddle and all the other types? Also, how does one get into reining? Would I be able to get a horse and have the trainer help me (thinking of moving out there to be closer to them) and then continue taking lessons on the schoolmaster to learn more? Thanks for the time and patience!

    That is exactly how you want to go about it to achieve the most success. Finding a well trained non pro horse to learn on and continuing to take lessons on that horse or the trainer's schoolmaster will let you feel how the maneuvers are supposed to be performed. A reining saddle has a lower swell to allow your body to move with the horse in the fast maneuvers like stops. If you decide not to move out there find a more local trainer via the NRHA to help you. Good luck and keep us posted!
