    Yes, every year we bring a dozen or so horses up from Mexico. Real tough cow horses straight from the cattle ranches. Most of them do real well being ridden english.

    Yes, it's possible. For example, my old horse Lexi was ridden Western for awhile, then I rode her English. But I noticed that she performed better Western. ;) It can definitely be that easy. She's not mine anymore- & now she's doing barrels. :) However, not all horses can adjust; some just do better at Western, or English.

    Whether it is a western saddle or an english saddle makes very little difference. You can train a western horse in an english saddle and vice versa. The main difference in the two disciplines is that the english horses have a longer stride and have a more forward movement, a bit faster. The western horse has a slower, shorter stride, though is no less collected than the english horse.
