Western--trail riding, trail classes, easy-gaited classes, etc.

English--I'm going to do eventing, right now just flatwork and some jumping

I rode english for 12 years, and made the switch to western a few years back.

So I voted both

Western. Tried english a few times but I thought the saddle was uncomfortable.

I do mostly ranch and cattle work. Roping, cutting, sorting, etc, and when I am not doing cattle, it is mostly trail riding. Though I also train.

I do English, hunters and jumpers, hoping to get into eventing.

Out on the farm that I work at, I do Western- trails, Western pleasure with one of the horses, some roping (don't know if it counts- Western bridle, but we were bareback :P), etc.

I also do a lot of Natural Horsemanship on the ground, and in the saddle. So I ride english and western for that.

Most, 98.0%, of all my riding has been Hunt Seat. The only time i've ridden western pleasure was with someone elses horse, horse rentals on the beach and such. I love English I feel like it requires much more concentration and connection with your horse than western. Not to mention the western saddle feels like theres too much between me and my horse :) But I still love both disciplines. :) to each their own.

I don't show right now, but I've played around with both. :)

English- hunters, jumpers, HUS, very very very basic dressage.

Western- WP, WR, HMS, trail class.

I ride bareback more often than I do with a saddle, though.
