I think it is a good idea. It will give you a different perspective and you may find some things you want to bring over to your western riding. I mostly ride with an Aussie-style saddle, but when I ride in a western saddle I adopt a more forward seat for fast trots or fast canters, while using a more traditional western seat when using a relaxed jog. That seems to make my horses happier.
