    I've done both. I first started on western just doing some trail riding...that was when I was 4. Then around 12 I started English. I jumped and did a few shows. I like doing it, but it wasn't for me. I wanted to be able to relax and go fast. So I went back to western and now I barrel race. I love it! But you can't have anyone decide what is good for you. Like everyone else said, try both. I mean its good experience and plus you make like to do both and show both. =) Good look with your decision.

    It would be completely up to you. It would be nice if you could learn both, but if you can't do both, in my opinion I would choose english.

    I would probably choose english because I personally do show jumping and really enjoy it, but as the others said, it's easier to go from english to western than from western to english.

    So I would suggest first mastering english, then you can maybe give western a try and you will find you can adjust more easily.

    Let us know which you choose and how it goes. Good luck.
