I talked to a woman I know and found out that the class I probably heard about was one held at a big open show that is held not far from here...
Apparently, the class is exactly like Western Pleasure, except all horses entered in the Speed Pleasure class must also be in a Speed class, like barrels or something. The class ends up being more fast-paced than a regular pleasure class, and the horses usually don't specialize in pleasure, so they're allowed to have more natural gaits.
