No pictures unfortunately! Kind of glad aha! But they want me back
She is in season, and a bit sensitive. But oh my what a different feel! It is the same but different as dressage. They had a good chuckle at me.. Can definitely tell I ride dressage and said I need to relax and not ride her every step. I said easier said than done when you are used to big moving WBs then move on to a Fjord :P
Absolutely loved her! She was a bit cheeky, and I really need to make sure I get on my cues with her. The couple that own her are so lovely, he rides with split reins, she rides with English reins in a not due to not having full movement in one side. So I need to be really aware of riding correctly, softly but firmly so I don't undo all the amazing work!
Next time will get pics though.. I love western riding!! Butt feels sore though! Naturally as he rides the saddle seat is fairly big, change from my 16" LOL
Canter was funny.. None of this nice slow rocking... Zoom!
She is ridden in a type of snaffle.. Will try and find a picture of something similar, such a sweet sweet girl though and super patient with me!
ETA there are lots of western horses and riders here, a previous yard of mine bred QHs paints and Appys. Just WB sport is bigger than western... wBs cost a fortune where you are and western horses and ponies not so much, and its the other way around here... Everything for western riding is so expensive!
