    I ride aussie. Lol. I guess that would be considered closer to English? I'm hopefully going to start taking English lessons soon, though, if I can find a trainer with horses I can learn on (since Aires is still young and green). I can't ride in a western saddle. It gives my butt bruises (no matter what saddle I try).

    I started out riding western, and rode that way for two years. And then I took my first English lesson, and so now I've been riding English more often. I'm going to try dressage soon.

    I ride western. I tried one english lesson. I was so scared, I was begging for my western saddle back. Now, however, my 8 year old was started doing english & he loves it

    I trail ride now. A dressage saddle is my favorite. I rode for 20 years in one. I did sort of split the differnce between two worlds with the plantation saddle on the horse in the photo (avatar). I must say it's pretty comfy.

    I ride English but I've always wanted to try western.

    I can't get my head around saddle fit though for western saddles. They all just seem far too long for the weight bearing area.

    I ride and show both western and hunt seat, but have also ridden Saddle Seat and Dressage.

    I ride English! I prefer the classy look of showing in the hunter/ jumper ring, and the great look of cross country which are my primary disciplines. But don't get me wrong I enjoy the odd western trail ride on my my jumper pony, and so does she. Usully after a show I take it easy and go western for more fun!

    I ride Western. Mostly trail ride, but sometimes I do gymkhanas just for fun. I really really want to try cutting and roping.
    English would be fun to try too.
