I'm a beginner, I want to know a bit about each style of riding. Seems like too much to ask though.
And this would be for trail riding.
I personally prefer english riding, but that doesn't make it better. What makes one style better than the other is the horse. A western built horse is going to be better for western riding, like an english built horse is better for english. Generally, western saddles are more commonly used for trail riding if that's all your doing.
