Should I Show Her English, Or Western?

I have some shows (fairs) lined up for next fall with my new coach. If I take my gelding in the ring at all I'll be showing him in western. But I can't decide what would do my mare more justice, English or western?

I'd say English. Her trot just strikes me as more English. Although the western saddle doesn't make her back look as long as the English saddle does.

Would I able to show in that saddle? It's been well loved ... I do have a black wintec, it just needs a smaller gullet in it.

If it's a smaller, local show, as long as your saddle is in good, working order with bi broken or obviously patched pieces, you'll be fine. That saddle actually looks pretty nice.

Okay, thanks!

Why not both? Your mare looks like she would excel in either one. I do love her in the English saddle, she looks to have that HUS movement to her. But she does look great in a western saddle as well.

I lean to the English side.

I have thought of that. I'd have to change and tack up like the flash though!

It's impossible to tell anything from two pictures.

How the horse moves and carries itself is going to determine what events to take it in. Two still pictures aren't going to tell us that.
