Somehow I expected this response. Most can't cope with the comments that will ensue and you seem to be no different.

When I give a rat's rear about your comments on riding, I'll post a video on YouTube and let you and anyone else in the world comment.

Now, perhaps you care to explain why someone who posts a video for public consumption has an expectation that it will be private?

Probably a poor choice of words but they should be able to reply to comments made about their video. The only place the owner of this video can do that is on the youtube site...not here.

^^If the rider was being criticized, I'd agree with you.

In this case, WP is being criticized for having judging that supports that type of gait.

BTW - the owner posted the video to sell the horse, and had a number of negative comments on YouTube earlier today. The negative comments have been removed, as has the owner's reply that the horse is NOT lame.

I will also concede it would be better to ask the question using a video from a public show rather than an individual trying to sell her horse.

Doesn't matter if it were rider or horse comments so your first comment is irrelevant.

But yes I believe my post #7 got it on tract after this thread had a few posts that were not WP only comments. So I feel I posted the right thing.

If it stays on WP ONLY as a discipline then it fits the rules laid out. And in that case it probably should have been posted in the western forum..

I actually just got home from an AQHA Futurity show. The answer is yes, they are moving away from that lope. There were horses moving like that at the show and they were not the ones that were placing. The ones placing were still incredibly slow but they had good forward movement.

So is it correct that posting possible buys for critique is wrong, since it's not the member riding? I see a lot of "Critique possible purchase" and "Does possible buy look lame?"

No that is not wrong as the person is asking for opinions on something they have a potential interest in.

Usually the OP will say something like " I am looking at this horse to maybe buy" "What do you think"

That is totally different than when someone who never posted on this forum and their first post is of a "random" video they saw on Youtube and ask our opinions on a controversial subject. Is there a hidden grudge against the person owning the video? Are they trolling to get everyone's dander up ? Or is there some other motive?

This is not being posted for a critique. I do agree with Spyder though. Its unfair to the owner of this horse. If someone who was potentially interested in buying this horse came across this forum... well. This video wasn't posted by the owner as a "this is how it's done!" Video, nor were they trying to use this to teach. It's just someone trying to sell a horse that needed a way to show people its movement. In the OP it was stated "what do you think?" Which in my opinion is asking for a critique, and as I said before, that's not fair.
