APHA isn't as bad as Quarter horse with monster horses... I just got my English Equitation ROM on my 15 hand gelding. :) With that being said, sometimes we are hidden behind 16-handers, hehe.

However, don't make him go that slow yet, or all you'll be doing is teaching him to disengage his hind end and travel like 80% of other WP horses. The 'great' wp horses aren't any better then the others by skill.. they're just TRAINED better. He needs to know how to go forward in order to collect; so bring his head up a little bit and allow him to do so. If you leave his head where it is, you'll just be running him into the ground. Like many good trainers I have known say: the main mistake people make when training a western pleasure horse is making him go too slow too soon. He'll be dragging himself along by the forehand in no time.

Other then that, he's a very pretty, slow-legged mover, although I didn't get to see him lope and that is 'the money gait', lol. I really like him a lot, and good luck with him ;)

I wasn't slowing him down at all, that's his natural jog gait

Also, I'm showing him HUS first so that he can move out and use himself right, I think I wrote that somewhere already...okay went back, I didn't write that in but the fundamental of forward before slow is something I preach a lot lol.

No lope cause he isn't loping yet...I wanna keep those slow legs sound :)



Thank you everyone for your compliments and suggestions.

Good job with him.
Like someone else said, Keep doing what you're doing!
I know I hated that when my trainer said that to me as I was training my gelding, but really it's true. Everything will fall into place as long as you stay on the same track you put yourself on.

Where do you plan to show? I see that you are in WI. I'll be at all the WPHC shows next year!
