For me I enjoy Western, so obviously i would recommend you take lessons in Western. It really boils down to what you want to do, if you would like English style then go for it..

I started out riding Western; then I switched to English. :) I like English more...but that's just me. :)
It's really a personal preference. If you wanna try English, try it! :D

Do you know what specific discipline you'd like to try the most? Barrels, reining, dressage, jumping.... are you interested in showing or would you rather just trail ride? There are huge advantages to both and really just a personal preference!

Since you don't know, do whatever your horse has most potential in.

I have a feeling I'm going to get scorned for this, but I found that English riders could adapt more easily to western than western riders trying to adapt to English. Dunno if this makes a difference to you or not.

^ LIES ALL LIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! lol just jokin, but i dunno.. I might try English eventually but for now I like WESTERN!

But ya it comes down to personal preference, and if it turns out you like WESTERN better then go with WESTERN, but if you dont then you can do the other one :wink:

I currently ride Western. I have decided to take up English and if that goes well I will continue to ride both. I like them both but for equally different reasons. I don't know what I would recommend.

BOTH! lol

Whatever you feel like you wanna do. I guess it also kinda depends on what horse you have. If you have a nice relaxed horse, prolly western. If you have a great preformer, English. But, it doesn't really matter. Any horse, of any breed can do either.
