Question!

So, I have a question to all of you. Do you ride western, english, or both? I ride western and rode english a few times. I like them both!

Both 6 days a week but I log a lot more hours in my western saddles.

I ride english most of the time, western only when I have a show coming up and at shows. English is my "go to" choice.

I ride both English and Western, but ride English more often, and prefer it most of the time.

I ride both. More western, but I do ride english when I don't feel like lugging my heavy western saddle out to my horse. :-D
