You've shown us a couple of these videos before. What are you really looking for?

Some of these horses are at different levels of training ranging from not broke to very green to what seems to be well broke. Again, what are you really looking for?

If I had to pick out of this selection of horses, I would absolutely go with number 5. By far the best moving, prettiest looking horse in this group. He is very green, but with the right guidance, he'll make a heck of a WP horse.

Horse #1 would be my second pick. He's pretty going to the left, not so pretty going to the right. There are some issues that need to be addressed before I'd put him in the show ring. He needs to get more consistent with his head & neck. I would prefer to see him drop it just a tad. Then his right lead lope needs to be cleaned up. He gets a little sloppy - and this rider is letting him. It will take some time to help him build up the right kind of strength to improve his lope going in this direction. He does have a nice natural way of going & I like how they presented that in this video.

My third pick is horse #4, which we've seen before.

I would definitely go with #2. Beautiful horse and he has great legs. Nice flat front end with a good rolling motion. Not to fast with just a bit of hesitation which is good. #1 is pretty good as well but not as good in the front. #3 is completely out for western pleasure. He just doesn't move the way he needs to in order to place at shows. #4 is pretty and has good legs but needs to be driven up under himself A LOT more so he is not 4-beating. #5 has the potential to be a nice mover and is pretty but he seems very green and he also looks big which can cause problems when trying to go slow and collected. #6 is a big no-no. It doesn't even matter how the horse moves as he is a palomino. Don't get me wrong, he's beautiful but most judges will not place him fairly because of his color if you are looking to show quarter horse. It is the same issue with buckskins. QH judges are partial to bays, sorrels, browns, and blacks (and occationally roans). This is just the way things are unless you show on the palomino circuit. So, to recap... #2 is by far the best choice... actually, I want him hahaha

I like horses #1 and #2. Both seem very soft and quiet, and have a rhythm to the jog and lope. #2 hand a little bit better cadence and impulsion to his lope, but has a tendency to pop up and down a bit while he's moving. I like that #1 doesn't have quite as much exaggeration to his movement, but he doesn't drive up under himself quite as well. Still both seem like nice horses that are more or less finished and wouldn't need as much tuning. Which is something to consider if you are just starting out in the discipline.
