I am not too sure what type of Western my horse and I should try. He has never been trained in any form of Western and neither have I. I have only recently put him in a bridle from a bosal so we are both still new to the bridle.
My granddaughter filmed us today so I could see how he was going. I am riding bareback at the moment because his saddle no longer fitted him. His new saddle is being custom made for him but it is going to take about 4 months. I know I am not the best rider but would like to have a go at Western Trail events or something like that. Just local events and novice only. So before I get lessons in Western, an idea of what he may suit will help decide who would be the best to teach us.
Would like an opinion on if my horse may be suitable for Western Pleasure or Trail? The trot he is doing is normal for him unless you really ask him to extend. I wouldn't like to force him into anything he is not able to do. I use him as a trail horse at the moment which he has does very well.This probably wasn't the best place or time to film as it wasn't very level and in the middle of a trail ride but may be enough to get an idea of his movement. He was more interested in my granddaughters than his trot circles.
