    Well if I were to vote...for riders it would be the cowboy...He got the most out of both horses. Poor english guy couldn't seem to hit the right buttons on that horse...although in his defence, he was pretty tall for that QH!!!!

    For the horse, it would be the dressage horse...although the western horse was nice too, perhaps just a little greener.

    Rider? Cowboy. Horse? Dressage.

    I wouldn't really say either rider was better. They're different. Granted, good horsemanship is good horsemanship, but I find the two to be equal.

    I've seen this video before too, and I think it's an amazing example for those who screams "only english is good" or "only western is good". Training is always training whether it's western or english, and great rider is always a great rider.

    I've seen this video before and I love it. One that I should show my cousin because he is a western rider and he is constantly putting me down for riding english as he thinks it is all prissy, regardless of the fact I can ride both.

    I'm going to vote for the western rider as the better rider and the Dressage horse as the better horse. The little reining horse was behind the vertical and either over or under spun in each direction. The western rider performed almost as well on the dressage horse as the actual dressage rider but the dressage rider was pulling for too much on the little horse and toward the end the horse was getting pretty bothered over it. If they had ridden 5 more minutes that reiner wold have come undone I think.

    I'm actually curious if the western rider did "homework" (like reading and/or trying dressage) before the demonstration. From what I know well trained dressage horse is very particular to the clues. And I'm not all that positive that western (reining) clues are the same as dressage clues. I may be wrong though. I'd love to see the input from seasoned dressage riders here.

    I'm sure they had practiced the exhibition beforehand. I would also bet that the western rider started out as an english rider.

    But definitely not the other way around, no rational person would go from a western rider to an english rider.
