It all depends on the horse, and how he's been trained. Some QH's are better with the English saddle, others better with the Western saddle. Most QH's are trained to accept the Western saddle, though many other horses have been trained to accept both or either or. So it ultimately depends on both the horse, the rider and the trainer.

In Yu-Gi-Oh is Bakura's first name spelled Ryou or Ryo since the manga says Ryo but the spelling accepted and used everywhere is Ryou?

His name in Japanese is transcribed to Ryō in Western characters, the symbol over the o indicates a long consonant.Because English is not a phonetic language though, you can render Japanese words like that in different ways, all of which are technically correct. 'Ryou' is valid, and probably the most common way of writing an expanded long 'o'. But Ryo is valid too, as in English, the 'o' can be short or long without using accents, umlauts or dipthongs.The deciding factor is picking the form that an English speaker is most likely to pronounce correctly. The long 'o' in 'Ryō' is pronounced like the 'o' in 'bowl', and most English speakers would pronounce 'Ryo' that way too. On the other hand, many English speakers would see 'Ryou' as bring pronounced it 'Ree-yew', due to having the 'you' in it. That'd be the correct pronunciation for a different name, Ryu.So as an answer, if you were writing in 'romanised' Japanese (Japanese in western characters), you would write it as Ryō or expand it to Ryou. But if you were using it in text translated into English, 'Ryo' would be the better choice.

Is riding to Washington nonfiction or fiction?

It depends who you are. If you are a fiction character then riding to Washington would be fiction. If you are a non-fiction character then it would be non-fiction. Also if your horse is fiction or non-fiction that could change the outcome. Also if Washington is fiction or non-fiction then that should change your answer.

To some degree, this will depend upon the style of riding you are doing (English or Western), the ambient temperature and your own comfort.

Which technique is best for riding horses western or English?

That would very much depend on what you are trying to do. Western has shows and sports that you would have issues doing in an English saddle. I would hate to try jumping on a regular basis on a Western I prefer Austrailian saddles when trail riding. If you are a typical young girl, go English. The bulk of girls seem to end up hunter jumpers near us. Boys tend to enjoy reining and penning, so I would suggest Western. There is no set rules here, just that is what seems to be the norms. Remember, Australian saddles for trail riding though! (my opinion) Once you try one on a trail, you will be hooked and never use the others again.

How do you switch from riding horses English to riding Western?

Well it won't be as hard to switch to western riding as it would be to switch to english riding. I do both and you'll basically just have to adjust to a more dressage like posture in the saddle, keeping a lose rein, typically using just one hand, and even using more visible type cues. English riders tend to be more smooth in their movements while western riders tend to be quite visible when cueing. Also the saddle will give you a little more balance as it's not as hard to sit on a western saddle, but they tend to 'bounce' the rider around a bit also. Also be ready for a western horses show gaits as they will feel odd at first.

Which is more popular- western or English riding?

The main difference is the saddle. English saddle is generally a lot lighter and has no horn. Western saddle is heavier and does have a horn. You can also walk, trot, canter, and gallop on both. Another main difference is the way you sit on it. English you have to use pressure everywhere, so it's not as comfortable for the horse. Western saddles are much more deep and much more comfortable. And Western riding is a LOT faster...TRUST ME. :D Hope this helps!

Is it OK to wear English riding boots to a Western rodeo?

If you're not competing, do not wear rodeo attire. So yes, English boots would be appropriate. If you dressed up like a cowboy it would be like wearing a football uniform to a football game that you're just watching.

Is English or western saddles harder to ride in?

As a long time rider of both disciplines, I would have to say that English saddles are harder to ride in. English saddles require more balance in the stirrups and more is expected of the rider when riding this discipline. Western saddles seem to have a much deeper seat; they also have a more laid back style of riding, where there is less requirement of the rider to focus on how one sits in the saddle. There is also something to hold onto; the horn, which is not present on an English saddle.
