Yesterday I had my first western lesson....Ever. In my life I had only rode in a western saddle twice. Once on a trail ride with my friend and the other time when my student/ instructor put on her reining horse to spin.
Trying to override 28 years worth of english was a little scary at first, my brain was rather unsure on a new horse with no contact. I put on my big girl panties and just did it.
Towards the end, I think I was getting the hang of it. I learnt so much, roll backs, spins, getting the head carriage etc.
From now on, I think we will be switching out for english and western lessons This stuff could be real fun!
