So happy this fad is gone. Two years ago, I took my grandpa to a larger show, where we watched the western pleasure class, and he made me get up and take him walking around the venders because he couldn't stand to watch "those lame horses forces to move around the arena."

However in the warm up ring there are people who still do this to their horses...

PAST Western Pleasure fad...I called... HOW SLOW CAN THEY GO? - YouTube

Just a while ago AQHA judges announced that everybody will be extending their gaits (all of them walk, jog, and lope).

AQHA Judges Will Ask for Lengthened Strides in Western Pleasure -

Hope that helps!
That is absolutely disgusting.

The GOOD thing about that horse in that vid...the Paint, is that horse WOULD NOT place at an APHA show.

That video is so upsetting to me.

I've seen some pretty bad lopes but oh my gosh. That horse has got to be lame. I can't understand why it would move like that if it wasn't. Heart breaking. :(

I know that trainer. I've been using him as a "bad trainer" example for a while. Even to the point he's blocked me on facebook. :)

That video...I don't even know how you would go about teaching a horse to do that! I keep expecting that poor horse to just topple over.
We have stuff similar, but not NEARLY like that.
