Western Pleasure Riding Western Pleasure
One of the most popular classes within the spectrum of western riding is the western pleasure class. It is a typical class for beginners to the show ring to acquire experience and control over themselves in a show scenario. In contrast to events like reining, western riding, trail, and others, in a pleasure class the contestant is not alone in the show ring. He/she can "hide" among a group of other competitors and is not judged individually.

The Racking Horse The Racking Horse
The Racking Horse is one of the most versatile of horse breeds. The "rack" of the Racking Horse is a bilateral four-beat gait which is neither a pace nor a trot. The Racking Horse comes by this gait as naturally as walking or striking a bold trot comes to other breeds.
He is not to be confused with other breeds, with which the "rack" is an artificially achieved gait resulting from special training. Click here to learn more about this unique breed

... Making the Connections

Rather than focus just on anatomy or training issues or rider balance or any other single aspect of horsemanship, wouldn't it be wonderful to be in a place where ALL the pieces fit together to create the big picture -- the WHOLE picture?

coloured equine who would carry you across vast distances to neighbouring properties or into town, where no self-respecting gentleman would be seen on anything but a Waler. Please click here to learn more

Western Riding Riding Western
To ride "western" has really little to do with the equipment you use, but it's a different approach to riding, and - as far as horse show events are concerned - the ultimate goals are different. To ride western means a different way, a different method, a different philosophy, means somewhat different aids and cues.
