    I grew up riding Western, switched to English, and still ride bareback a lot.

    IME, English requires more strength on my part than bareback. But that's just me.

    And whoever said you need a leather saddle for showing.....that entirely depends on the discipline. I know people who have evented in Wintecs up to training.

    OP, just a word of advice, do NOT look at new saddles in your price range.
    If I were you, I'd save up at least $300 and then go search for a used saddle of a good, well-known brand.

    Good luck and have fun. English owns.

    Cause I'm definitely not a large hunt man (as stated above).

    I think Dancing With Sunny is talking about Western.
