So, I want to learn to ride English. I want to ride Dixie English-style; none of the other horses. So will she be okay with it if, for example, one day I rode Western, the next English, and the next Bareback? She has been trained in Western and I usually ride her bareback.

Only those who risk going too far, can possibly find, how far they can go.

The biggest difference for the horse is a switch in bits. Otherwise its more on the rider, in my opinion. As long as you can correctly ride each style, the horse shouldn't really care.

Thanks Abra!

Okay! Yeah I'll just stick to riding her in a rope halter and if it's not a rope halter, it's a snaffel ;)

Yeah she should be fine with it as long as you can ride English...take some English lessons first so you know what you're doing and have someone that you can at least call if you have a question.

Yeah go ahead! I rode my old mare all 3 and she was fine! Just make sure she understands what your asking her. My old mare never really understood western!

The only difference between cowgirls and angels is cowgirls can ride better.
