Here is an example of what I consider a nice western pl horse, with cadence and self carriage
When awestern pl or HUS horse is collected properly, driving up from behind, the highest point of his top line should be the middle of his back, with the horse rounded from tail to nose

I once asked a WP rider why they taught their horse to carry it's head so low and was told it was so the horse could see obstacles on the trail. I said if the horses eyesight was that bad I wouldn't want to ride it. Lol

I think that horse looks horrible and lame. Just me though.

Agreed corino!

Can I push it to make it go faster? It's making me anxious to run! LOL

I can't tell what gait it's doing! D:

I will play devil's advocate for a moment. That is actually one of the better moving WP horses. It isn't ideal nor is it practical but at least it doesn't move like a crippled, 3 legged crab the way some of them do.

It just doesnt look like a 'pleasure' to ride at all.

*gasp* I really thought this horse wasn't looking great. I just looked at this horse and he is a Grand Champion AQHA Western Pleasure. Around minute 1:45 you can see what I am talking about. The lope is the same. This really makes me sad. I know this is an old thread but is this still the industry standard? I rode WP when I was younger and while this troping lurching lope was starting to make its appearances but a good balanced relaxed lope still won the class.
Horses name is One Hot Krymsun. I hear he is a very well known AQHA stallion.

I'm sorry, but I think it moves like a poodle at the trot....I was watching and thinking "dang, that looks so familiar, where have I seen a gait like that" and then I grandma's poodle!!

And I'm sorry I HATE fake tails. I know it's a standard now and in some cases a requirement but it makes me sort of ill to see. Back in the day that was called cheating, so how has cheating become standard? I think also part of why I don't like it is that I have always done a lot of WORK to make my horses tails look perfect and now if I don't put a fake tail in their already perfect tail, then my horse is faulted for it or looks like it has a bum tail because it doesn't look like the fakes.

^^ He is. I hear his name EVERYWHERE, but I wouldn't want one of his babies.

I agree with above posts. That horse does look like its horribly lame o.o It just doesn't look comfortable to me, and I've ridden some peanut rollers and I hated it. It was freakishly slow, and my back actually hurt when I was done. I've NEVER had back pain before, even when I was tossed from my cow ponies. This shocked me a lot.
