    I find the western saddle to be much more comfortable. To me (and this is JUST my opinion) I find English to be too restrictive.

    English. I can ride western, and am not really opposed to it, but most of the people where I live that ride western aren't really good riders. So, if I want to learn to ride well, it's got to be English. That and it feels like the twist on the western saddles I've ridden are too wide to be comfortable for me, whereas the English saddles I've ridden feel perfect

    I started on western & it was ok.I didnt really like the saddle tho & I did some barrel racing & I just didnt enjoy the speed & quick turns.Then I switched to english & rode schooling horses while I got the hang of english & then I worked on my horse(who was a cutting & barrel horse)& he's starting to look good with an english saddle.Now Im showing schooling ponies in hunter-jumper & I'll be showing mine own horse in hunter-jumper soon too, hopefully!
