WP, as my understanding goes of it, is how comfortable the horse looks to ride. western EQ is how well you ride based on western riding principles.
No, it would not be ok if an English horse had a western headset. You would get points taken off.
You also need proper show attire for each class you are showing in--western clothes for western events, english clothes for english events.
Even if its a "backyard" show, my attitude is that you need to treat every show like its a show that matters. Or just don't show.
