Let me start by saying I am not an english rider. I train cattle horses. But my 3 yr old filly has the look and movement of an english horse. (Or so I thought)
Now I am working with a trainer in this area who trains. Because I would like to get my 3 yr old ready to show in English for a friend to ride. And would love to take her to the appaloosa nationals next year.
Now... I was told bythis trainer that an english horse's poll should never be below their withers... however.. at all the shows I have been to and videos I just watched on another thread of the QH congress/world show.. the english horses move like WP horses!
Now she was shown in a small show and placed 2nd and 3rd in HUS and equitation... with my limited knowledge of english training.
So is that how they should look... or is the trainer Im working with correct?
