    Yah cause you guys don't have your horses heads collected most of the time right?

    I would actually call your local ranchs and see if they offer Western riding lessons or if they know of a good person who can teach you.

    Lol I have no idea if there are any ranches out here but it would be worth a shot. I did find one barn but I don't know if they do lessons I have to find out on monday.

    Do you have any tack or feed stores you can ask at? They have been a great resource for me!

    I went to the vets and asked them about local barns and stuff and they didnt know anything. I don't think the feed store would know because its just the dennis CO and they sell everything from paint-gardening. And there isnt a feed store withen a half hour and I know they wouldnt know of any waaay down here.

    Where in Washington are you? If you don't want to answer, that's fine.
    Western horses are in frame, but they are not really collected like your dressage horse. Watch a Reining horse move. A good Reining horse is extremely supple and collected but on a loose rein. A good reining horse moves off light cues like a Dressage horse and preforms percision movements like a dressage horse. I heard that Anky van Grunsven wants to do Reining in the 2010 olympic games.
    You may like Trail too. It's not as directly related, but you definitely have to have control of all parts of your horse in a trail class.
