Me, too, ride both. Well, Western and dressag, that is. One can learn a lot from each style of riding, and it makes your skill in the other style improve.

No pics right now unfortunately, but I ride English. I love jumping and love close contact saddles, and though it's lots of work on positions, I love the challenge of achieving perfection. I used to ride Western and I enjoyed that too, but I switched over for jumping.

Coda...

I've done a bit of everything. Reining, dressage, hunters, eventing, working cows, Country English Pleasure, Western Pleasure, Gaited horses, barrel racing, trail riding....I've never done saddleseat, endurance, or driving, though.

My uncle and aunt have an Arabian ranch in Colorado, they do mostly reining (their horses are phenomenal) but also have a few Arabs that do Working Cow, Western Pleasure, Country English Pleasure, English Pleasure, and endurance.

Reining:


English Pleasure:


Dressage:


Gaited:


Hunters:
