^^^ that is definitely not my kind of lope. I think it takes away from the natural gait. I just can't do it. Lol.

The second one looks like it's probably a reigner. The first one was.... not so good....

The first one...wow, that horse looks exhausted!

The 2nd one looks like a canter to me as well (although I don't ride Western soo I'm no expert, lol!). But way better than the first.

A show lope is SUPPOSED to be just a canter. But it has been transformed into what is unnatural IMO

The first lope I didnt like at all...In the second one if the horse would drop his head a tad and relax I would like it for a "show lope".

Two different horses. They move differently. The second moves better -- that is why you like it, but they are both a little too forward. They could stand to bring the pace down a bit without losing their impulsion. Would require a stronger frame which is difficult to build.
