Don't make those sweeping generalizations.

You live in Texas. Most casual and/or trail riders are going to ride Western. That does not necessarily mean that they care what kind of tack you put on your horse or how you dress to ride.

If a riding club is specifically geared towards western competitive events, no you won't fit in and you probably won't want to belong since that is not what you want to do anyway.

However, if the club's focus is trail riding, I seriously doubt they will care or object about you riding in english tack, wearing tall boots, or a helmet.

I live in Texas, and I agree! Many people I know ride both English and western, but because I ride western, that is what I see everyday. Every once in a while, somebody gets out their English saddle.

they were talking about shows and most clubs in my area only do playdays and western showing. I am trying out a new cowboy church tomorrow that has a riding club, so I will see how that goes. Most people do ride western around here. I wasnt saying it is a bad thing. I have been on ACTHA rides around here (a couple of years ago) and I maybe saw 2 other people riding english. :/ Even my parents and brother ride western. Again, not saying western is bad, I just like english better, my preference. There are clubs I have seen that trail ride, like the Forest Hill Riders. But they also do a lot of playdays too lol so I don't how many trail rides they do.

Where do you ride? I don't know anyone around here who rides english (personally). I know of clubs but they don't do trail rides.
