English, because I love jumping. But I've always wanted a horse that neck reins.

My horse learned this last summer. It is nice to be able to ride one handed.

Western but I know nothing about english. Since this is more cattle/rodeo country there are very few English riding stables around.

Well i've been to see lots of western events, but admire both english and western riders. To me, the only difference between english and western is the tack and disciplines.

I don't really ride either - I ride an australian stock horse, ride in a stock saddle and go trail riding, lol tried jumping over logs (though its a little harder in a stock saddle though), go round the cattle and all sorts.

It shouldn't matter what style you ride - its how you treat your horse, and do what's comfortable and enjoyable for you and your horse.

I prefer english. Probably because that's how I learned to ride, went right into jumping. I find the english saddle more comfortable and it seems more 'natural' to me. When I'm in an english saddle, it's like it's not even there...don't even acknowledge it. But when I'm in a western saddle, it's like there's this big clunky thing under me.
