    Engish Vs Western

    709 words - 3 pages

    Whenever I talk to someone that wants to start riding I usually ask if they are going to be riding English or western, and 99% of the time their response is: “what’s the difference between English and Western?” Which usually leads onto them asking: “Is one easier than the other?” So, I decided to do my speech on these very questions that are asked. There are both differences and similarities between English and western riding. The most obvious is the tack that the horse wears. A western saddle is larger and heavier then the English saddle.

Next thing I knew, I saw a man on a horse racing from the opposite direction with the same intent….me. I wasn’t sure if I should be happy at the prospect of meeting two locals on my first time
