I am changing discipline so going from hunter/jumpers to western pleasure. Any advice? I’ve been a hunter for about 6 years old.

Western is easier than English when u get use to it. I don’t want to say it’s “sloppy” but it’s not as neat as English. You’ll get the hang of it in no time!
Keep the horse slow and seesaw you’re rains to keep his Head down
sit on your pockets & lean back slightly. sink into your heels & at the trot your hips should go side to side. go with that movement to keep the horse slow.
