possibly buying a western pleasure horse

Hey guys so im going to look at this western pleasure horse 2 hours away from me and he looks amazing! his lope is so slow it almost is like a trot and he keeps his head down low and his trot looks so soft so i'm pretty excited to go check him out. hes a tad bit pricier then I was wanting but this horse sounds like hes worth it, maybe more. And I've been wanting to try western(looking for a western horse atm) but I dont know much about it, wel just think of me as a beginner western pleasure learner.
so if anyone knows any good sites or can explain it a little more to me that would be great.
I've been told the aim is to keep the horses head low, have a nice lope, look good and I'm not too sure if thats it (thats how little i kno about it) as i've always been an anglish riding girl

Do you have a trainer?

Riding a pleasure horse is different and a lot more difficult than some people seem to think.
