    Hi howrsegirl123,

    I answered your past question about your horse.

    Please I don't want to sound rude or anything but I honestly don't think he'll be at a level in which he would be competing with the big HUS horses out there. I'm the kind of person who says, 'bloodlines speak'. If I'm correct your horse is mainly a Western Pleasure horse. Simply bred to do it, in a way its like asking a reining horse to do dressage. Sure he can do it, but he won't be as good as the horses who were bred to do it. The HUS horses you see, like how they move, is just natural for them. You can't train them to do the long extended, flowy, slow legged, trot. It just comes from their breeding. HUS horses are typically horses that have Thoroughbred dams.

    However, many HUS horses have TB dams, and have the sire be a western pleasure horse. Slow legged, deep hock, etc. + the size, legs, energy= your HUS horse.

    I also know many WP horses who went on to become great HUS horses. The Krymsun Kruzer's sire is One Hot Krymsun, who is a WP horse. TKK is now a AQHA super horse, he did western pleasure, HUS, driving, hunter over fences, etc. he's a true horse.

    It really depends on your horse's ability too. I would love to see more videos on him.

    I suggest finding a local AQHA trainer, one who knows what he/she is doing and what he/she is looking at. There you can take off and see how far you can go. AQHA HUS headsets are pretty low, but I know got ticked about that (AQHA people--who do HUS) and I have been told they're working on it. But in my honest opinion, they are not too slow. Goodness! Its not like you want them galloping around the arena. I find that their speed is perfect. Plus, those classes are huge. My friend went to Congress and she had 8 splits in her HUS class, filled with 18 or so people. Its very crowded in those rings.

    So that is my 2 cents, I would love to see more videos!

    Good luck!

    Thank you, and I don't think you're being rude. I actually never wanted to go to the top with him, just maybe do local AQHA, and like I said, if not, I just want to make him better.
    I'll post more videos today.

    Do you think he has the making of a low level HUS horse? Could he get a better headset, longer stride, and more impulsion?

    Although he does have a good jog and he likes to do that, overall he's more of a 'go' horse. Not really fast, just likes to go.

    I think he enjoys hunt seat better, not necessarily HUS, just overall English.
