Exclamation want to learn about western riding!

Hey,

I was basiclly tought with strict Dressage methods! And have always been riding English. Never crossed my mind to actually learn western riding. Well now that I know for a fact that I want to be a horse trainer someday (hopefully soon) I thought it would be in my best interest to at least learn about western.

My horse Gypsy was ridden western most of her life and she knows how to neck rein REALLY well, just takes over when you don't have a lot of contact :roll: I was never told this when I bought her I just found out all on my own.

...SO tell me all you got!

Thanks in advance

Oh yah I did take like two western lessons when I was younger.

Take some more lessons in Western. Try Reining, you may find it similar to Dressage in a lot of ways. Sure, you can read up on Western, but the best way to learn is by doing. :)

Yah I might find a trainer who does western. But I don't know if there are any out here This and the internet are my only resources right now.
And I don't fully trust the internet cause I don't know if what im reading is correct or by some crazy horse person with screwed up horses. At least here I trust the people.

Oh buddy, they are out there. You just need to learn where to look.

Here for example, is a list on the AQHA site with professional western horsemen, with a fair number in Washington.

Well, it is a start. Databases like that are common. I am unaware of your specific location, and didn't even look at where those people were. They are not the only ones out there. Agriseek is a good resource for some things. You just need to look. Hopefully someone else will have a resource for you.

It's a lot like dressage, your horse still has to be submissive to you and all that good stuff.

Very much so. It's actually the same except for the frame that your horse is in and the apparel and some of the moves...
