Yes. WP bred horses are bred to have very minimal knee action. You want to get a short, flat stride, which sometimes can kick up a lot of dust. I used to have a pleasure horse we'd nickname "Pigpen" because whenever he jogged in a dusty arena, he was a cloud of dust. Lots of leg action does not translate to collection. I like that guys horse a lot. He has a very clean, slow, 3 beat lope, and his head is not low either. I'd like to see a stretcher front leg on him though, he's a little shut down (but what WP horse isn't).
