Encouraging a friend into english riding?

I have a friend who orginally took western lessons, but had to stop because of money. Well I ride english, and I bring her out to ride with me sometimes, and she is considering leasing a horse at my barn. All of them are english, and she is a bit unsure, even though she is a natural! Even on my bratty mare! How do I encourage her/help her/get her interested? I don't want to force it on her! She says jumping seems awesome, and she has jumped something prob 6inches or 1 foot in her old lessons. Thanks guys!! :)

Take a picture of her on a horse, in English tack and a velvet helmet and tall boots and show her how cool she looks!

Tell her time on a horse is time on a horse and that you can gain something from riding a bit in multiple disciplines. It makes for a well-rounded rider, IMHO.
