I'm really not a fan of showing, my family and I are into Natural Horsemanship, I have Tennessee Walking horse and a QH, headset isn't a big deal to us and the horse should carry his/her head where it's comfortable, it's really cruel how people "train" their horse to have perfect headset and gaits (TWH)

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.

My guy walks, trots, and jogs with a naturally low headset. You'll notice the way his neck is attached to his body...
