Internet Outrage Over Western Pleasure Horses – New Video Shows The Same Horses From A Different Angle

The Quarter Horse Congress is one of the biggest shows in the world and there is a video circulating around the internet shows a western pleasure class that has many people outraged. This video was created in response to that video with the caption:

“Many of you have probably seen the video of a western pleasure class from congress doing the rounds on Facebook . The footage has been shared and slandered by a lot of people; some who are active in our industry now, some who were involved a long time ago and others who have no understanding of what our western discipline is. I just wanted to share this clip showing many of the same horses, taken from a different angle and say how phenomenal I think they are. Western Pleasure, like any discipline, goes through its fads and fashions but in my eyes this video is proof that the industry has never looked better. Nearly all of these horses are balanced, correct and are covering ground with a strong, flowing movement. What more could you possibly ask for? Welcome to 2015.”

Here is the original video that’s been making it’s way around the internet:

I posted this video not to bash Western Pleasure in any way shape fashion or form. I was attending Congress and Halter classes had finished so I figured I would shoot some Western Pleasure footage. Its amazing the amount of views and shares this video has gotten and the dialogue that has come of it. Some good Some Bad.
