Welcome to the board OP - don't apoligize for your question. It was a good question and you got a good answer from... Smrobs... I think it was (I read it several pages ago).
As for the debate, try asking a question about NH or Dressage!
This forum really is a great place to ask questions as our members do share a wealth of knowledge. As long as opinion.
I for one happen to love western pleasure. I am excited that we are moving towards a more forward moving lope and a slightly higher headset. I wish we could get there a bit faster but anytime changes occurs, it takes time.
