Well if your trying to find out what is the pleasure, how about you stop being so snarky and immature?
What isn't the pleasure of Western Pleasure? Your going at a slow, relaxed pace. Your not fighting to hold your horse back, you sit up tall and have fun.
Doing a nice jog or a lope is very pleasurable, the horse is relaxed. The person riding is having a blast.
This is a relaxed horse, going nice and slow. This horse truly exemplifies the true western pleasure horse. All his gaits are correct, he's very floaty and smooth. How wouldn't this be a pleasure? They both look relaxed and enjoying it.
Because this horse definitely looks like a pleasure to ride...
