I'm going to do a little bit of western pleasure, maybe even show in a couple classes at a small show.
My horse is primarily a jumper, but his gaits are smooth and steady enough and can be slowed down enough to do western pleasure.
I'm wondering if doing western pleasure will help any of his jumping? Obviously I'm not going to be practicing jumping with a western saddle on. But for the days I do flatwork, would it help to try some western?
