What type of riding is your horse better at?

What discipline, western or English, is your horse more suited for?
Mine is western, because he does barrels.

I started Lexi out Western, but then when I switched to English I find she does really good with jumping. Although she loves barrels! I do them with her once in awhile, bareback.
She is really good bareback.

Ride more, worry less.

Solomon is best suited bareback... which isn't really a dicicpline.
Stretch is a great Western Pleasure horse.
Dixie is an awesome Jumper.
Rocket is amazing for barrels.

Up until Doc was twenty five (last year) I rode him western because when I got him all I had was a western saddle and last year I started english lessons and I liked them so I think it was this month on the 6th or something when I got my english saddle and he does so much better! Before I had to jump in a western so I wasn't able to move to any high jumps because of the saddle and now he jumps higher every time I ride him. He really is an old horse so I think the lighter saddle has been good for him. ( and it doesn't hurt me as much as the western) Anyway as far as his dicipline goes we do jumping and some trail riding.

I love my boy Doc!

I think Maia could go either way, but I only own English stuff, so that's that!
