Please tell me this was not supposed to sound near as snarky and rude as it sounds!
^^^I was wondering if I read that post wrong too! But it seems Im not the only one.
I have read every page and every post of this thread.
And as I read some of these posts I think about how closed minded some people are.
No one is saying WP is inferior. They are just talking from their experience. In which I have to agree about the collection. No matter the discipline or sport... the meaning of collection WILL NOT change.
That being said... the majority of the cattle horses in this area are not collected at all. Is that going to make me change disciplines and get deffensive... no. But it will make me sit back and look at it from another point of view. My horses will collect up and work. Yet I can slow them down to that slow WP jog as well.
So sit back at look at what is beind shown before shutting down and getting defensive. They are just telling you how they see it. Learn what can be learned from others... what you don't need or cannot use... put on the back burner...
Many people have sighed for the 'good old days' and regretted the 'passing of the horse,' but today, when only those who like horses own them, it is a far better time for horses. ~C.W. Anderson
