Omg I just have to say! I was riding rena today, and I collected the canter, kept up the impulsion, and it was really good, so I let the reins go and said good girl, and she kept that same canter, but stretched her neck so it was a little lower then her withers, and we cantered that way. I started laughing, because she was doing a proper western pleasure canter. On my 16.1 dressage horse, and she wasnt dragging her feet (god FORBID my dressage horse EVER drag her feet!!!!) but it was a round, canter that I think the new WP horse could get if they just had impulsion.
Haha just had to share, because I thought it was kinda funny.
If there are no horses in heaven... im not going.
