    I put my old leaking metal water troughs to use as hay feeders when I keep horses out for the day in the arena. Safer than eating on the sand and limits hay on the footing.

    I have shown HUS from the 70s on. It used to be: the fastest trot won, and the horses were off the QH track, too hot for the western classes. Then, the very tall spidery HUS became the must-have...

    OK Bluey, you have good points, but "stiff, resistant, hollow back, U-necked horses with their heads tucked in by the strong bits and hands" is quite different from "by far not what it is today." ...

    Now this is wrong.

    I showed WP in Calif from 1966 to 1972, at the QH shows (mostly Diamond Bar) and the big open shows at Santa Barbara, before moving to Colorado. We kept the horses between...

    Which is why the Trail and Western Riding entries in AQHA shows out-number the WP entries by quite a lot. If you wonder why there is a renewed buzz in AQHA about fixing WP, with new gait judging...

    Back to the original WP topic, the 2015 AQHA rule book does spell out, in detail, the new judging procedure to evaluate quality of gaits. No judge following the rulebook can now place the horses...
