Prepare A Western Style Saddle
If you want to ride Western, be sure that you are
using a Western saddle and not an English saddle

Use a Western Bridle
A Western bridle is less complicated than an
English bridle and has fewer components. It can
be split or connected with a handkerchief, but
all Western reins can be held with a single hand.
English bridles tend to use a snaffle bit,
whereas Western bridles can involve either a
snaffle bit or a curb bit.

Sit Deeply in The Saddle Straight with Relaxed
Arms
It might feel more secure to sit on the cantle.
However, this is uncomfortable for your horse and
you should move up a couple of inches. Be sure
that your horse is comfortable and able to
interpret your signals, be sure that you have
good Western riding posture.

Hold The Reins in Your Non-Dominant Hand
Steer with light touches from the reins with a
single hand. Hold the reins with your
non-dominant hand so that you can use your
dominant hand for other tasks, such as tying
cattle or lassoing highway robbers.

Use Neck Reining to Steer
It Guides your horse to move in the direction you
want using a gentle touch instead of a pulling
motion. You should steer your horse in the
direction of the inside rein. If the left rein is
inside, the horse will turn left. If the right
rein is inside, the horse will turn right. The
Western-trained horse is always trained to move
away from the direction of the rein touch.

Always Give Steering Signals with Your Hips Seat
Make sure that you do not lean your body,
however. You want to remain upright and centered
at all times. Use gentle shifts in your body
weight to guide the horse
