My first attempt at western riding *Pictures*

So i'm a very traditional English rider and when I went to my grandma's she took me to the western yard up the road and they gave me a lesson. It was quite an experience but the horse I had was the sweetest thing... called "H"
Here's some pix

I wasn't the best at it but I really enjoyed it.

I don't ride western either, but it looks like you did a good job to me =]

You look pretty good but your stirrups are too short, I you go there again have them lowered. "H" looks like a very good boy!

Looks pretty good...but LOOK UP. Lol Try to stretch down into your stirrups and get those heels down. That horse looks like a sweat heart. Its great that you enjoyed your first western lesson!

Looks pretty good. I agree, your stirrups are a little too short and you need to look up. I won't say anything about your heels. I tend to ride with my toes more down too.

Yea a transition from english to western might be hard.. just remember that you should be sitting deep into you're saddle and barely have a bend in you're leg.
