I've always wanted to learn to ride western but all that I can find here in Northern Ireland is English and that's how I was taught. I don't drive so if anyone knows of anywhere that's easy to get to via bus/train that would be very helpful.
I am about to start a young horse as well and would like to try it out before I start training her properly in case I decide it's the way I want to go as I believe it's harder to train an english trained horse to go western?
Is it deemed to be more difficult to learn than English for the rider?
Any suggestions/comments/opinions welcome!
