Appy Magic

by Meagan
(Dracut, Massachusetts)

When I was five I started riding english. At first thought it was the best in the world. But four years later something changed my mind. It started when my mom found out that one of her friends from work rode at another stable that had an old appaloosa in need of a rider for the summer. And I had to admitt I was getting bored of just walking and trotting around a ring for a half an hour. So I joined the Golden Shoe Stable. I've met great friends both people and horses with the magic of western riding and appy power.

I think western's also good for nervous people learning how to trot, they can hold the pommel horn! Plus, western saddles and bridles are much more gorgeous than ENGLISH.

English Riding Shouldn't be Boring
by: Sierra

I ride English and it's not boring at all...but I jump and that's fun! I've ridden Western too at camp and on trail rides. Anything with horses is great.

Im confused?...
by: Horserider

Okay... I'm confused! I started riding English last summer.(I started out western) And its March now and were already doing jumping courses! But if you have been riding English 4 years wouldn't you be doing more than *walking and trotting?* I'm just wondering...

Anyway, one more thing...I ride both English and western. But i'm not really as good at western as I am English. Lol but i guess if you want to be a real cowgirl then ride western!
