I love them both. But when it comes to working on being a better, more effective rider...I'd rather be in an english saddle. It make it so you can't rely on the saddle as much. Builds strength in the legs and tooshy. Improves balance.

We trail ride so I prefer the western seat. My husband prefers the endurance type without the horn. I like the horn if we are just on an easy trail. It does get in the way on rougher trails though.

I started in English and switched to Western. I found western far more enjoyable. I like the competition of rodeos more than dressage and jumping though, probably just my preference. I agree that english is more difficult.
