Switching from THW to QH, suggestions?
I am currently taking riding lessons 1x1 with a trainer, and have been on a TWH mare practicing my reign skills, barrels and poles. Last week, I used a spur on my left boot to get the horse to pick up some speed. She is a little slower paced and really patient, so great to learn the basics on.
My trainer is putting me on a QH on Thursday to pick the barrel training back up. I am excited/nervous about this, because I know he runs a little hotter than the TWH.
Any suggestions, tips? I know switching from a gaited horse will be a change in itself already, just looking to prepare mentally!
