I feel the same way. I don't know what's happened to the show world.
I had a lesson yesterday on a WP/HUS horse, and it was nothing like riding a normal horse. He walked so slow I thought he would halt at any moment and his lope was slow and choppy. Plus he had the lowest headset of any horse I've ever ridden. I will say that his trot was super comfy. He was also trained to do a spur stop, which I've never had experience with before. I couldn't believe how different it was from everything I've been taught previously.
But I agree. I don't care for the "modern" HUS. I hope it's just a passing trend.
