    I won't ride western.
    It doesn't bug me to see people riding western...
    But embarrassingly enough.. I do feel kinda superior to those who choose to ride western. I know that's bad, but I can't help it *blush*

    I don't mind seeing people ride western. I do it myself a lot. But I'm more of an english person, however in my county I'm about the only one in english. So when I go to an open show, I get funny looks, but I don't mind anymore. Although, someone came up to me and said I didn't belong at the open show and that I should leave. I'll admit I was upset, but its ok, because I beat them in their best class. :) Sorry off topic.

    ...In "my" world we ride in a western saddle for training purposes no matter the discipline, even to warm up at shows... I only use my english saddle for show days...

    It's kind of funny because when I was a hunt rider I never rode western and hated the feel of the western saddle... now I prefer it...

    So... when I see people riding side saddle I just want to yank them off the horse! ... (So I can give it a try! I think it would be SO cool!!!)

    I'm not sure why you would feel superior... but whatever floats your boat.

    I don't have a problem with it but saying that I do have comments that I keep to myself.

    Like, "oh look how forward their leg is", or "how can they ride in that bit", or "that horse lacks impulsion" etc.

    Although i'd like to try my hand at western, I like the look of the saddles.

    I ride English and someone riding Western wouldn't bother me one bit. I don't see why someone who rides Western would be bothered by someone riding English though.

    We ride western and are strictly recreational riders, but respect and are more than happy to meet and ride with anyone on a horse.

    The way I see it, if you have got time to think about critisizing another rider, you've lost perspective on what enjoying your horses is all about.
