I just had an "AHA!" moment.
Well, if the last picture is indeed the lope picture.
Now I know why WP horses look so odd at the lope, the last picture explained it... kinda. With the pure gait, the horse should be in complete suspension before the outside hind comes down. You can see in that picture that the inside front hasn't even left the ground. It's almost a mix between a jog and lope.
I would honestly work on getting that gait pure, otherwise you're setting him up to become a peanut roller *blech*
Are you using draw reins with another set of reins too, or are you still just using the one set?
(pssssst - rein :) )
