    English, specifically dressage. I started out riding AP english/pleasure, and now I do just dressage and a tad of jumping in the summer. I also do bareback occasionally, but I ride english style then as well. I don't think I ever want to try western.

    Mostly english. I started riding at a pony farm that did mostly western but once they let my try english (because none of the stirrups on the western saddles went short enough for me) I was hooked! Then when I first got my mare I was riding western again because that was the only saddle I had. When I met my trainer I started riding dressage, and got a dressage saddle then. I haven't ridden western much since!

    Western all the way! The atmosphere at shows is so much more calm... but I do like jumping occasionaly and took lessons in english for about 7 months. Besides, i've only ridden for about a 2 years off and on and western is a little more supportive/ stable to learn the basics on.

    I didn't vote since I ride both. I was strictly an English/dressage rider for 8 years, but last year I started exercising a couple horses who went western, so I learned how to do that. I love dressage, but I enjoy riding western as well.

    Jester is trained english and western, and so is Annie.

    I like english for balance and I enjoy doing a little Hunter Jumper or HUS, and maybe some basic dressage with Jester. But my heart and passion is with Western reining, cutting, barrels, and the like. I do every western event except WP. All my horses have english movement for some reason....even the reiners o.0

    The last time I rode western was 7 years ago when I learned how to canter for the first time in a western saddle.

    English. I haven't sat in a western saddle in years. Nothing against it. English is simply my preference.
