English, I see as dressage/showjumping/XC etc. Anything that uses a basic english saddle or one of its modifications and based around the english 'seat'. the US 'hunt seat' style would come under this too.

Saddleseat is so radically different - both in tack and rider position - it just bugs me to see it classed as 'english'. That's no slight on it, of course, it's just a classification that bugs me, no matter how 'correct' it may be.

I like to consider saddle seat as an american form of riding. It was created in the plantations and the plantation owners going to town. The only reason why I would think saddle seat is considered english is because theres no horn.

Does it bug you also that Americans speak "English" as well. The differences are very great. I am just joshing you, Kyani. I knew what you were going for. I will admit it bugs me sometimes. "Southern" is what paeple spake dun hare.

JrChloe, I know you from Trot and MS, so when I saw this I immediately knew a good resource to turn.
