Could be any of those. It really depends on the individual.

How old is the horse? What is easy/difficult for him to do? I ask this because when I got my gelding, I rode mostly western, but he really wasn't the best western horse. He is more up in the neck as opposed to stretched down, he has a reaching, faster paces stride naturally, and all sorts of other little things. When the girl leasing him began riding english - he BLOSSOMED! He loves jumping, looks great in the gear and doing the maneuvers.

Maybe try it all out, and see where his niche is??

^^^ good advice. Each horse has its strengths and weaknesses and its up to you to find out what they are and then work on the things he seems better at or seems to enjoy more :)

It is always good to evaluate the likings of both you and your horse.

I love Western. But I have been very curious about English. That is what helped me decide to get planning to ride both.
