Doesn't bother me, though I'll admit, before I knew much about english riding, I thought it was just wierd...
I ride my mare western, but my gelding goes both western and english... I actually prefer to ride him english.
It used to be a sight to see a different saddle other than western out here... but now we have more australian/english riders... though I'm still the only person who rides in an english saddle (I no longer get awkward looks)... lol.
