First couple decades, I rode only western because that is what was taught & every trainer I had worked with was teaching me. Then I took lessons from a lady who taught both but because she was straight from England, her instructions were more geared to English. During a group lesson, another student was becoming frustrated on their English horse & since I trained horse's at the time, she asked to trade horses & do some work with him. After that time I was hooked! I like the close contact, the posting, the light saddle, everything was so new but the same, hard to explain, it just " spiced up" my riding experience! I still ride & show western but English is my favorite.
