I ride & show both english & western. I ride english way more because I feel it's a better work out for me & the horse. However my horse loves going western, low & slow is his thing. I can relate about the jumping, my horse jumps & had done some pretty awesome courses with a trainer. I got him back from the trainer & jumped him hmmmm 2X. Next show season, I promised my coach I would practise & take him in cross poles, if that goes ok, we can move on. Jumping does scare me, I love the feeling but being older & if I fall, I break. Absolutely no reason why you & your horse can't switch it up & go back & forth between disciplines, lots of riders do this.
