What do you like more: western or English? I say English because I’ve been learning to jump and I think it’s really fun!

I’d have to say western (specifically reining) because it takes so much finesse to ride, I really enjoy riding the different maneuvers and there’s always something new to learn and improve on, however English is awesome too! If I couldn’t do reining I’d definitely have to do hunters ☺️
I’ve never ridden western so I can’t really say! I’ve always wanted to try western because it looks much more “relaxed” than English (obviously you are still doing the same amount of work and it’s still a difficult thing, not putting western down at all!). I feel like if I rode western it would be for trail rides and more leasure riding so it would be super different from English riding!
I love jumping and definitely more of an English fan, however I do have one western horse and have fun with her too
i would agree chase! i love to jump, especially cross country
