Nope, you asked what the 'best' way to ride is, and I answered that. There isn't any such thing.
I learned English first, and prefer it. Doesn't mean I think the English disciplines are better than the Western disciplines.
As I stated, it's merely a matter of personal preference and nothing more. The old adage, 'we learn best what we learn first' is generally true, but that doesn't mean you can't switch disciplines if you have your heart set on a particular one.
I used to show saddleseat and English pleasure, but switched over to exclusively trail riding. Didn't switch to a Western saddle though, as I prefer English tack and am most comfortable in it.
You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!
