Riding both is good for you and the horse . It's calledcross training . Maybe you're riding English on a trail and you need to open and close a gate ; having side passing and turning that is used in Western trail in good even when you're in an English saddle or you're on a trail in a western saddle and you jump our horse (not recommend but we all know that accidents like not seeing a ditch happens) and you and our horse know what to do without killing eachother . I ride both, more Western though, and it helps a lot (: I grew up Western and plan to stay that way !
