I don't show in breed shows, but from what I've seen, breed show horses, especially QH tend to go with their heads much lower. In all the hunter shows I've been in and taken students to, I've never seen one horse with that low head set place, but to be fair, I stick with schooling and C rated shows mostly. I don't like that low set, it just bugs me, but that's strictly my opinion. I'm sure others love it. And in breed shows, that appears to be what they strive for. Any breed show people out there with thought on this?
