I like English. I started out western, but pretty soon was dying to do English. The precision and grace of it just captivated me. I took some hunt seat lessons, and although it was pretty tough, I was amazed at how quickly I developed better leg strength, balance, and awareness. I love the look of everything hunter- the riding attire, the tack, the horse...it's just so pretty and lots of fun! I still like western too and do some western pleasure, but in my opinion English is better!
I love both styles, but I mainly ride English. I love the finesse and the closeness I feel to my horse when I ride english style. I have however been doing a little western pleasure work on my mare Belle, it's kind of fun getting that 1-2-3 beat canter, so slow!
