Ive been riding English since '09 now and I've never really looked at Western or knew or heard much about it till being alot more active on here, so in the last 5 months id say. I don't do any eventing in English yet, like to get into show jumping. There seems to be LOTS of people on here that ride Western and it sounds like lots of fun, and more comfortable than English. I've never ridden Western and id like to even try one lesson, but why am I finding it so interesting? I don't own any English stuff other than, boots, half chaps, breeches, helmet and that's it. So if I switched I don't own much id need to swap out. But should I give it a bit of a try and see how it goes?
