English VS Western similarities

I am doing a compare and contrast speech for my language arts class. I am comparing english and western horseback riding. I just need some similarities and differences between the two. (I already have alot of differences, so similarities will be what I am mainly looking for) Thank you very much to all that helps/answers this post!

I'd be interested in hearing about the differences, that which you've noted so far.
As for similarities, well. The obvious:

Both require a balanced rider, control of the horse via leg and seat and rein,
Both have snaffle bits, and both have curb bits.

The bars of an English saddle tree look practically identical to the bars of a western tree ( a little smaller).
