Western and English Riding
At Clip Clop, our goal is to expose our riders to both Western and English styles of riding to inspirit them with an admiration for both.
Selecting which style of riding to ride, at this level, is easy - try both!
The basics of riding fundamentals is almost identical with a few differences such as the terminology, outfit and equipment, so we encourage riders to try both!
As riders progress through the levels, most will develop an affinity for one style more than the other. And, for some riders, they remain doing both for their entire lives.
All riders regardless of their style of riding in LTR Levels ride together and can swap in and out at their discretion.
