I had a trainer that did WP....... One of her horses, a 16 hand mare, had a really odd, lurching lope, and she said it was from a past owner/trainer. Well, my pony was out for a month with a splint bone, so I rode that mare ONCE. I was riding her and could barelky stay on with that lope, so the RI said to speed her up a bit- and it got her going better, and as she went faster, her lope and body just perked up more........ Until she said "that's too fast. slow her down" and we were back to the lurch.
Back when my opinion was unbiased, I never liked WP because it was too slow, and whadya know, I still think it is,lol. I like fast and responsive.
