It's fun, but not really my cup of tea.
I'm an English girl, all the way.

Jumping is amazing. One of the coolest feelings in the world.

In my opinion for dressage ideally your stirrups would be longer. Although, because you are not riding in a dressage saddle (is it a Close Contact or AP?) longer stirrups probably would not suit, and may look strange.

I've always wanted to try western.

I'm totally just going to jump on this thread even though I have no idea what the current discussion is.

1) I love jumping.
2) Western is fun as well, but I can only take it in small doses before I get bored.

I jump bareback over logs it's great though the time I fall off and I was riding double then girl fell on me.

Like the first time I rode jody in a trot in the pasture it felt like flying.
Or loping on Whisper, it felt like I was a storm clouds, he was bumpy.

Its always weird when I see the words "lope" and "sorrel". I have to stop and think about what they are for a moment, then I am like "oooh canter and chestnut". Do English riders in America call it chestnut or sorrel?

Hey, is there a horse colour called "odd-bald"? I know there is skewbald and piebald, but I was playing a trivia game the other night and 3 out of 5 were correct, and odd-bald was a correct one. I was thinking maybe it was just a term I had never heard.

Sorrel and Chestnut are to different colors.
Chestnut is a light color.
Sorrel is darker the chestnut, sorrel is like a brown red.
Shalom everyone.

I have always been taught that they are the same. There are different shades within them, but chestnut and sorrel are the same color/gene.

Saskia, I am an American English rider and I call it chestnut.
