Is Country English Pleasure the same as Saddle Seat?

Its a class division at Saddle Seat shows. Every breed has their own verison. Its a type of pleasure class that puts even greater emphasis on manners in the horse. The horse still has a high-set head position and somewhat animated gait, but animation is of less importance. Horses show at the flat walk, trot, extended trot, canter and are required to back.

that's right JrChloe,

Country divisions were initially started to showcase what a saddleseat trail horse would look like...manners are of the up most importance. Today, they are generally used as a division for the horses with less action, and many of them do not meet the manners requirement. They are shown with full mane and tail, in a daycoat (no tux).

In the saddlebred world, the levels go like this:

Country pleasure
English/show pleasure
Park
Three-gaited

In the Arab World, it goes like this:

Country
English
Park

Hope this helps!
