    If WP doesn't work out for you, there is always the possibility of Western Dressage. You are allowed to use both hands and have rein contact, according to usef guidelines.

    Your horse can be taught to neck rain. Where are you leasing her from? Is there someone who can help you out? I would recommend a good trainer to help you and your girl reach your goals. :)

    Doing things for "shock value" rarely works out the way you intend and often translates poorly..

    Have fun and check your motives!

    Imo

    This! Have fun at a show and don't do it because you want people to stare at you or are just looking for a wrong word or comment....

    To HECK with western pleasure...you two are a natural for eventing!! Come on, you know you want some adrenalin running through your veins. You have a naturally good position and your horse just might love it.

    No, english isn't "prissy". You have to have guts to do it.

    Come over to the dark side.....MWAHAHAHA!!!

    Are you anywhere near NC?

    Hey from another NE Ohioan! I event in the area. You should come to a mini trial at South Farm, Fox Creek Farm, or Stone Gate Farm and just watch to get a feel for it.
