Western Riding in Northern Ireland?

Hi Everyone,

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!

Thanks

I think you might be out of luck, Pandora. I don't believe Western riding/training is something that's done in Ireland.

As far as being more difficult to learn? Not really. It's different, but each style of riding has its own challenges. Not more difficult, just different.

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!
