    Oh stop being so bitter. You sound like a child.

    Yes, the horse would do better at a local show...BECAUSE local shows (at least in my area) are for the AQHA rejects...meaning they no longer can hold up against the horses nowadays. They lack the consistancy, cadence, collection, and movement to be competitive pleasure horses.

    I preferred the paint because, in my mind, the main thing that stood out to me is that the horse just needed more miles. Just needed to learn how to build the strength to maintain it's cadence without constant help from the rider. It out-gaited the sorrel easily. It's much more fluid in its movement and has far more pleasant lines.

    And, for me personally, WP is and always will be a preliminary dicipline. For ANY horse to be successful in another dicipline, they must first master western pleasure. (or HUS depending on direction)
    ...Walk, trot/jog, canter/lope, stop, back, collection, leads, body control, and maintaining a sound mind in a show setting...

    AND to me, the paint looked as though it was more than capable of not only being a competitive western pleasure horse, but also could go onto other more demanding diciplines and be successful.
