    I have to agree with everyone else I don't think there's anything wrong with it at all apart from in the show ring of course but any other time what ever makes you feel good

    You mean there is another way to do it? LOL Doesn't everyone ride in a snaffle bit and western saddle?

    When I ride and I want to ride both english and western, I put my western saddle on and just change bridles.

    My mare neckreins and goes in a bosal. But I use an english saddle because it's comfortable for me. I don't care what anyone else thinks, as long as my horse is happy!

    Not at all! I rode with an english saddle and my bejeweled western bridle forever! As long as you don't plan on showing in that, lol!

    I have truly developed a love and appreciation for both methods of riding. I totally plan on mix and matching once I buy my horse. That's why one of my requirements for a horse is that they go english or western. I can't imagine choosing one or the other at this point.

    I recently sat in a western saddle after not having sat in one in years. The first thing I said was, "This is so comfy!" Then I said, "I feel like I'm so far away!" lol.

    I still use reining even if I happen to be riding English. Riding is riding. Unless you are trying to compete in a show that has requirements there are no "rules" about equipment or style. What works best for the rider and horse and what should be used.

    [QUOTE=elevenelevenxo;241893]. And if you ever see someone posting in a Western saddle, don't laugh at ''s better for the horse if the rider's posting versus smacking their butt on the saddle like a big 'ol potato sack! I've heard so many Western riders chastize someone for posting saying "you don't do that when you ride this way!" QUOTE]
    This makes me laugh cause I have always posted regardless of tack and my trainers teach posting regardless as well. I post all the time as its more comfortable and easier on my back as well as builds muscle(on me) haha :]

    That is what we call "winglish" or "estern" and it is totally I don't know if it is normal but its totally fine and fun!!! I agree with the comfort thing. I had to right this little beast mare in a western saddle with her english. Because she tossed me a few times so I was a little shaky. But its totally fine and won't screw your horse up at all

    Someday I need to get a picture of me riding with an English saddle, Australian leathers, western stirrups over a navajo blanket while wearing T-shirt, jeans and cowboy boots. With a rope sidepull halter.
