For whoever said they feel "superior" to Western riders..It's a mindset about status isn't it?
Some see English as more "refined" and "high class" and Western as the sloppy, cowboy, "cheap" style of riding, but Western isn't just hop on and go. Both English and Western require finely tuned horsemanship and attention to detail. Whether it's dressage or reining, it all requires skill. Both disciplines could learn a thing or two from the other.
Don't get caught up in the "who is better than who" debate. It's ignorant, it won't take you anywhere but down, and it's a senseless waste of time.
