Western or English?
When I scroll down all these different threads, I find that most of them seem to be English. I have found a few western, but mostly they are English. I was just wondering who all are English riders and who all are Western riders.
I am a western rider.
I know that there isn't that big of a difference between Western and English, but I was just curious as to which way you guys ride.
I just registered at this site. I ride western!
You can get a pretty good idea for what we ride by poking around threads of different disciplines. I'm an eventer, but I also have two Arabian reining horses.
This thread is a little pointless without a Poll. Just saying :wink:
OP, there are some pretty big differences between English and Western disciplines, but they're both equally difficult to learn properly.
I'm an English rider. Even when I switched from riding Saddleseat and English Pleasure over to trail riding, I kept the English tack. Completely personal preference, and has nothing to do with me thinking one riding style is 'better' than another.
I ride English, primarily hunter/jumper, though I've tried everything from eventing (love) to saddleseat (not my thing). I've also ridden various western disciplines as well.
I ride trails - so do but that really fits in either category.
I ride both english and western. I started out english but changed to western when I had to move to another instuctor. Ever since then, I've felt more comfortable riding western. However, I love english too and will occasionally take out my english saddle :)
I ride western and my daughter always did until she tried english. Now she prefers english as her discipline of choice but still shows a little wp too.
I ride both :-) I started out western and recently switched to English. English is much harder for me than western, but I think I like English a tad bit more.
