Wow, I had no idea there were so many western riders on here! I rode western at Girl Scout camp many many moons ago! Other then that my experience is nothing but English. I just can't get used to the thickness (or heaviness!) of western saddles!

I ride western mostly. I plan on team penning my horses and it's certainly more western than english kinda fun. :)

I have only ever ridden english, I do want to try western someday though.

I voted English, but I usually ride Western. It depends on my mood... in the summer (long and lazy) I like riding Western. (Or bareback) But when I want to get a good workout, shed a few pounds, I think English is more appropiate. The stable I ride at only does Western, but English is fun b/c of jumping...

I like them equally.

Iīve never even been near a western saddle !
We donīt have any western in Iceland and I think our saddles are just a little bit diffrent from the typical english saddle, but itīs mainly the same deal !

I am a jumper and I have always rode English, I don`t like riding Western, this may sound weird but it make me feel like im sitting in a Box. Even when I have to exersize one of our Western horses I just ride bareback.

I think its always good for English people to learn to ride Western and Western people to learn to ride English. It helps balance and understanding of other types of riding styles. But that's my opinion

I started out riding Western, but then I switched to English a bit ago. ;)
I love English more, to me it's more comfortable. & jumping rocks!! :) But that's just me.

Everyone says English is fun for jumping? Heck I jump with my western {endurance!} saddle and sometimes my regular western saddle, since the horn is actually real low, I jump with that if its a low jump. I know nothing about jumping, I just know I like it.
