 New to english, tips?

Hello! I am going to learn how to ride english. I was wondering what size stirrup leathers that I need? I was looking and I was wondering if 48" would fit me? I am 5’ 1", and I am only going to get to like 5’ 4".
I am mostly going to be trail riding. Also, any tips on anything else?

Thanks!

I mostly ride western so I have no idea.

Although if you’re new to riding and you want to ride on trails, might I suggest Western? There are a lot of people who ride English on trails and such, but I always did like having something to grab onto in case of a random event... :)

I have rode western for a while but a friend (the only one that rides english in our area) watned to teach my sister and I how to ride english. I love western but it makes my horse over heat after even a half hour ride :( He is an icelandic horse and he is old. I took some English lessons and I decided I like bareback best :) it keeps him nice and cool and I like the feel of it. Thanks!
