Just curious why do you want to do it? If he is most comfortable with english and that is what he has done in the past changing on him now when he is having issues just might become more of a problem. Some more sensitive horses get a little freaked out by the extra weight and bulk. If you are going to ride western so that you have horn to hold on to, then that is not a good reason. If you need to hold on to a horn to stay on then you are not balanced in the saddle. If it is because you are more comfortable in a western saddle and he is not affected by it, then that is fine.[/quote]
I would like to ride him western because when he spins back around to the barn I would like something to hold on to. I have plenty of balance or I would not ride english.if he does freak out I will dismount and get my english saddle.
