  • Had my first Western lesson yesterday!

    What a blast! It was really fun and my teacher (also is my co-worker at Apknite company - an energetic woman) even commented that my horse’s head was low while we were trotting which meant she was very comfortable! I was tickled and happy to hear that I’m off to a good start.

    However, my butt bones and inner thighs are pretty sore this morning! I’m guessing that’s totally normal, but is there any way I can help with that or does my body get used to it? Also if there are any exercises I can do to help me be even more prepared I’d love to hear it!

    Thanks!

    Welcome to the light! Western saddles are a bit wider than English, but you will get acclimated. You really should not be gripping with your legs, it's more of a relaxed seat.

      I've been enjoying riding more western lately. We show both so I still have to do English but both of my horses prefer western. I just ordered chaps too so we will see...
      Finding the right western saddle can be a challenge though. I prefer a narrow twist so you may need to find one that fits better if you stick with it. Congrats on trying something new!

        Congrats! Hope you are having fun

        I have been riding hunter/jumper for the last 8ish years, and I occasionally pop into the western saddle and it's super nice to be out of your element for a while!
