well, as a photographer myself, all I can say is that if he can't get 'quality' images shooting someone with English tack, then he's a pretty poor photographer!! What an idiot.
I'd love to ride in a Western saddle because it looks so **** comfortable and really secure. Rocky Pony, you're right about English saddles not doing much to keep you in them - they don't. It's all too easy to go piling off the front of them (a friend of a friend recently landed on the pommel of her English saddle and split her pubic bone, it took her two hours to get off the horse)
From a photographic point, Western and English tack both have their merits - Western looks so very, very cool and English tack is just so effortlessly elegant and classy. I'd happily photograph both and the posibilities with each of them are endless.
Drafts4ever, if I ever make it over to Washington, I'd happily do a shoot with you, lol
