But, when you ride Western, it's a lot harder to do no stirrup work because your stirrups don't just come off or slip over easily. ;) But in English, it's easier. My biggest downfall is my lack of strength and bad heels, therefor I've decided to very mildly-in the beginning at least-participate in No Stirrup November! Yay?
But on another note, I also decided to join The Little Bay Princess' blog hop!
"I want to hear about your equestrian bucket list! I think we all have things, whether they be on paper or in our head, that we would love to do someday. Pick three that are horse related, and tell me a little about them."
Honestly, Dressage is what sucked me into English riding. When I saw how Red was coming along, and as he started feeling better, he started having such a beautiful extended trot, and actually did a little canter pirouette and did it well, then I find out that he was indeed used occasionally for some Dressage work, I think he has potential and I love it. The idea of it captured me. Dancing with your horse? Uh? Sign me up!

I would love to show eventually. Maybe in Ranch Pleasure, trail class or something English. :) Dressage, maybe. :)
