No im defiently not determined to buy a horse straight off, this is the 6th horse i'm looking into. I want to try western peasure, always have. I'm not a jumper as jumping scares me, dressage I don't know much about, cross country im scared off.
Problem with trying western pleasure out before I got a horse is that I live in a tiny tiny town where we have 2 pony clubs(both english that you have to own a horse to be in) and two riding places, both that are english and one that I am not allowed at because they refuse to let me in due to my spine and scared I may sue them if I fell. So they only actual way is if I had a friend who had a WP horse to try it on, once again another problem I only know one of them and she only has her one horse that shed never let anyone else ride. So the only real way to try it is either train your horse in it, buy a horse and get an instructor to teach you with the horse. Hope this makes sense im abit tired.
