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.
