I was first taught to tie it. When I started working with my trainer though, I started to prefer buckling.
I honestly feel it's perfectly secure, as long as it's laying flat against the buckle. I'm also much shorter legged, so it lays smoother under my leg. I think it's preference really, but I pretty much always buckle unless I run out of holes or something on a certain horse, then I'll tie. I did punch more holes though to give me a wider option..
