Wow, this is a real eye opener for me. Honestly, I never thought that way about people who rode western, or english, to me we are all horse lovers, and that is a tie that binds us. My momma taught me not to judge a book by it's cover. If someone acted "snotty", I figured they were having a bad day, or just stayed away from them. I never for a moment thought it had one thing to do with the style of saddle they were sitting in. I always admired Western riders, the saddles, the clothes, but, I never had one treat me any differently than an english rider did in any situation.
