I know that wp gaits have been very controversial. I think the it has gotten way out of hand and most wp horses are not performing at a natural, pleasureable gait that they should. If you read the AQHA rulebook and go to an AQHA show, many of them are not following the rules and the winners are not what should be acceptable. In the book, it reads that the poll should be at our slightly above the withers. And horses are to be penalized if reins are draped to the point that light contact is not maintained. And faults that will be cause for disqualification are....TIP OF EAR CONSISTANTLY BELOW WITHERS!!! WHAT??
That is Vital Signs are good. She has a tremendous amount of AQHA wp points and is very well known, so she sure has never been dqed for headset!!!!!!
