^^^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...

Storm beats 3 beating lopers all the time, if he goes up against well trained new thinking WP horses then he does win. I find it kind of offensive that you are implying the only reason I beat this horse is because it is old style instead of new.

I wasn't posting that post because of how my horse showed or didn't show. I was posting it to show that the judges are starting to get better at the local level.

Most of us totally understood why you posted it. I am overjoyed to hear that change might really be happening. I have heard about rule changes and this and that over the years but have not actually seen any change. Glad change is seen some where.

Some people find insulting others much easier than accepting others might be right.

hahaha I found this funny. Not. So now you're implying that you're taking the title of "im right", or giving it to someone else. Why don't you pat yourself on the back?

I saw a post on here where someone said something about close mindedness. I've actually read your guys' advice and thought about it thinking, "well I can see how they think that". You and some others on the other hand seem to think that's theres just no possible way a wp horse can be collected because their heads are down or they are slow. Theres just no possible way they can be collected right? Wrong. I've ridden jumpers, dressage horses, hunt seat horses, and even a games horse once. Collection is the same, no matter the headset or the speed.
