I guess one of my big issues with big lick showing is that, if a Walker cannot gait naturally, it can still be "trained" to gait with artificial means - whether they're legal, like pads, chains, whatever...or illegal ones like soring - which seems like it could cause a potential breeding out of natural gaiting. If a TWH can't gait naturally from birth (which it technically should be able to do), it can theoretically be "trained" into the horse. This could potentially ruin the breed, IMO. Not to mention that I find "big lick" gaits preposterous-looking. I'm not trying to be incendiary or offensive with that, that's just my personal preference.
