WP horses are bashed by a lot of people. I used to think WP looked pretty easy. I had a reiner, so going around the ring on the rail & doing a walk, jog, walk, lope, reverse & do it all again looked like a piece of cake.
Welllll, sure, you can go around the ring and it can all be easy, but doing it well, on a nicely trained horse is not nearly as simple as it looks.
Now that I have a WP prospect, I know the hard work that goes into making those rides look so effortless. I think what really caused a lot of the bashing was the peanut rolling, 4 beating and incorrectly used spur stops. I don't use a spur stop, but have seen it done well and have seen it done very, very badly.
