I don't really tack my horse up that way, but I guess wearing western attire could count? until I start actively showing, I'll be too cheap to buy any actual english attire...so jeans, or slacks and whatever type shirt...Lol!

Haha! It could be Estern I suppose. :wink:



I think it's an interesting combination! :) My horse definitely likes it. Sometimes I switch it up and ride with an english saddle and a western bridle. I guess that would be more Estern than Wenglish

I've done both mixtures plenty
my last horse was mostly western but towards my end of my owning him I purchased my english saddle, but he only had a western bridle so I rode a lot in an english saddle and western bridle
and now with my new horse, he's mostly english but sometimes I want to ride him western and he only has an english bridle so I do western saddle, english bridle
so I ride western, wenglish, english, and enstern
haha

I do I do! Malibu is more of an english horse than a western horse, even at her slowest she is doing laps around all the other western horses I ride with. It's easier to just post instead of try to sit it out. But I have yet to find an english bit that I really like her response to so I ride her in a western bridle with her western bit one handed posting away in my english saddle!
