I am western at heart and I love it much more, but now that I have ben doing english just as often as western, I am not hating it as much. I think its because if I put an english saddle on my horse, its just weird and my knees are not where they should be (hight withers and odd saddle pad) and on the horses at the barn, I sit comfortably. I just hate when the leather from the stirrups pinches my leg- ow!! I like you the horn saves me from sliding onto the neck if something happens
better to get a horn in the stomach than to fall of the neck and get trampled!
