I work at a stable that is the home to both English and Western enthusiasts. While I teach the English lessons, my partner, who covers the Western lessons has landed in the Hospital! I've ridden western a few times, here and there throughout the past decade. I know how to put on Western tack. I am familiar with neck reining, and that the western gaits are similar, but have different names, and are slower (I've heard "broken gaits", but I don't like the way that sounds.) I suppose I was wondering if you all had a few tips for me! The students I'm covering are all beginners, and starting with two reins. Any advice or tips are greatly appreciated. Thanks so much. Happy trails!!
I'm just covering these lessons temporarily for my friend. I am NOT saying I am a Western professional, or plan to be one! I just love this forum and figured I would ask you all for some help.
