english to western training
so judging by the thousands of other posts I've made im guessing everyone knows that im switching jarred from english to western. Lots of reasons bring me to this decision but I wont bore you with those. But I have a bunch of q's to ask:
- so far I know I need a saddle, bridle, blanket and breatplate (i need one with a dressage saddle of late with jarred so I figure I will need one with a western saddle to. Is there anything else I should get straight up that I may need?
- where do I start with training? Until I find a trainer im on my own. He has basic english knowledge; he leg yields, accepts the bit and is very light. But I don't know what area of western I want to do yet mostly because I don't know whats what lol
Basically I guess I need to get an idea of where to start and if y'all can give me some tips on where to start
Thanks in advance
