I think it's because western originated in the US, which was known as the "western states", or something along those lines. Where as english was more so in the english/european countries.
I honestly think of english riding as something that showed you had enough money, whereas western is more practical for your farming and ranching that popped up in the US.
Probably completely off, but that's what I think of, lol.
