Sorry for the Double Post.
Neither of us were trying to start anything - the fact is, we both (Jared and I) just got back from an APHA western pleasure show (among other things), and it was not something we'd been exposed to in much detail before. I have no intention of creating any sort of feud between disciplines - I think all disciplines in the equestrian world are an art of their own. We were curious. My only experience in training horses is the trail riding world. I break horses to be general riding horses for the trail and for fun. I've never competed in anything really. We've got cutting horses, but they've all been professionally bred and trained for the sport. I'm just adjusting them to life outside the arena. Our questions stemmed from curiosity and interest. WP, or at least what I've seen of it, has a very unnatural look and feel to it - though, like I said, we haven't been exposed to it in great detail.
Now, if you read Jared's original question, and then my clarification of it, the question was HOW do you go about teaching a horse to move that way? To quote you: "WP horses have so much training its incredible." - so how is it done? Is it something you start at the ground work stage, or is it something that happens after the rider in the saddle?
"...prove that it is quality training going into these horses." - neither of us ever suggested that these horses were not trained in the most quality manner. We were, rather, observing that it must take an immense amount of training to get these horses to move in such a manner.
Our question was - how?
