FWIW, my Aussie-style saddle is a compromise between English and Western in how it rides. Easier to post in than a western saddle, but deeper and more comfy than my jump saddle.

Regardless of saddle, I use the reins and bit western. Unless I forget to grab a bridle that day...

I ride western because it's fun and competitive. I also love the expectations of horsemanship that comes with being a western rider. I am appalled sometimes when I go to photograph hunter jumper shows, or grand prixs, or what ever and their horses literally walk on top of them. MANNERS! I've just found that ground manners are just expected for a western horses and to me, that's thinking about the whole package as a partner, not just a riding mount. :)
