Is this what the WP judges want to see?

Hi, I came across this youtube video and watched that horses lope. Correct me if I'm wrong but I thought that in WP we want to see "forward movement" now, yet according to the description this horse has several recent AQHA points in Western pleasure. So how do we train now? Any thoughts?

I'm sorry, but that doesn't look nice at all. I know it's a style of riding, but when I watch something like that, all I can think of is the look my dogs give me when I scold them. Lowered head, hesitant gait... not my preference.

I rode WP back in the early 90s and that lope looked worse than anything I saw way back then. I was under the impression WP had moved away from such hesitant gaits? I don't have any thoughts other than it looks ugly...

I hate watching movement like this. The horses always look like they are in pain and can barely move. Sad sad

Wow...I see a navicular horse, with tender feet and is to sore/stiff to move forward.

I realize you are new here and you may not know that it is Horse Forum's rules that we do not just critique random pictures or videos unless they are yours, instructional or you have an interest in purchasing the horse in question or possibilityy ones done by professional trainers that would expect comments on their "product" ( like Parelli...etc)

Wow, just.......wow.


Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Golly. That would delete half the threads!

The Riding Critique section says you should only ask for critiques of your own videos. However, for pictures of, say, rollkur, halterbred QHs (I posted some pictures on a current thread - OPENING UP A CAN OF WORMS (halter horses)), training techniques, etc...we really can only post our own videos or pictures? I rather doubt that.
