Totally personal preference. I recently ASSumed that my 9 year old daughter would want to ride western, because that's what I like. Nope. After afew lessons, it turns out that she loves english. She hates sitting the trot unless she is riding a reaaaaally smooth horse, and she likes to post. I hate posting.
Also depends on the horse available, at least for beginners. Kiddo is a beginner, and although the horse she has is well trained for western, he's young, and extremely difficult for a beginner to neck rein and slow down to a jog. He's much more cooperative for her direct reining and trotting out at this point. The horse also seems to prefer the english tack lol.

IMHO english is alot more versitile. I personally have went to fun shows where you can do the western events in your english saddle, found that to be pretty fun acctually. Nothing real serious but it was fun. But it all depends on what you are interested in. English is a lot faster paced in more ways then one but it is also a bit more complicated then western in my opinion, there are a few tricks of the trade I guess you have to remember. Whatever you choose I hope it works out for you :)
