    Omg!

    That's the saddest thing! The uglification of the horse & his gaits leading to breakdown. Some people may never SEE that, though they've LOOKED at it.

    Then you are a western pleasure person. That is what you like and that's great! I personally like a horse with an unaltered headset. I think that sometimes people take it too far and that the judges swear that its not to be tolerated, however most of these horses noses are level with their knees. No doubt these horses are well bred, well trained athletes. I just don't like the double standard.

    Judges should look at correctness and smoothness of gait and the overall picture the rider and horse present as they ride along the rail. The horse should be in a collected frame and move with forward motion.

    To tell you the truth: that looks comfortable to ride in, but the horses look miserable and lifeless. But then again, it is just a personal opinion.
