I spent a good portion of my childhood on a ranch working cattle with family. I never really learned to ride, was just put on a horse and away I went.
I haven't ridden regularly for 20 years now and I took a few lessons in English and bought used English paddock boots and half chaps. I signed up to lease a horse and they have a saddle I can use for free but it's Western. I'm okay with going back to Western but they say the horse will need to be ridden with spurs which I've never used before. The guy said I could get spurs for my paddock boots. He let me borrow his to test ride the horse and they had rowels. English spurs don't have those that I've seen, will English ones still work?
