lol I think I answered this same question a couple of weeks ago lol
Alright for example if you had to ride your horse for two or more days straight would you like to do it at a trot or a easy canter??
When horses were still the only way to get around and the real cowboys were slinging guns and all that they taught their horses to stay in step with the cows at the faster paces with a canter instead of a trot so the cowboys werent as saddle sore and for men....welll.....it was just eaiser lol
So western pleasure is the ideal western horse and well that was it lol
Our horses know our secrets; we braid our tears into their manes and whisper our hopes into their ears.
