    Believe it or not, I don't think those are fake tails! I think QH people use tail bags and trim the bottom to get that really full look!

    The High Prairie developments are so exciting--I'd spend a lot more time there if he were running things!

    Nope--they're fake, although we h/j people would be delighted with their real tails, but they don't seem to be enough for the AQHA folks.

    I'd say 70% are fake. Since the fakes became legal, most people have gotten lazy about the time and care a real long full tail takes, but some still have the goods and take the time.

    Whether it happens or not, the Spring and Fall dates and shows are still owned by Larry Langer. High Prairie owns the summer shows and dates.

    The first three judges are solid H-J people, do not know about the expertise of the last two.

    And I think the first rider, with clean round, is the daughter of a COTH member.

    I've always heard that QH judging depends a lot on breeding. Is that so? Like if that horse's sire was.........he's sure to get a good placing. Hence, they keep the best names in their papered name.

    Just got back to the office from watching the jumper prelims. Nice course that wasn't too easy and asked a few questions. I saw a few good rounds (including the first go which was impressive) but lots of rounds where they were either way too fast and dumped on their front ends or too slow and not enough impulsion and leg to get over the fences. But I did see a few rounds that were very nice. May have to wander back to the city to watch the finals Saturday.

    Not so re the judging. Famous names are included in a foal's name mostly for snob appeal and future salability.

    No, like Sparky said, they are fake! And trust me, I'm not averse to a fake tail, my hunter sports one at the bigger shows. He used to have a tail that would have given my old Western Pleasure mare a run for her money, but tales just get thinner at the bottom as they get older. But the QH people are just like everyone else, if some is good, MORE must be BETTER, and they've gone a bit overboard on the tail thing from a h/j perspective.
    Definition of "Horse": a 4 legged mammal looking for an inconvenient place and expensive way to die. Any day they choose not to execute the Master Plan is just more time to perfect it. Be Very Afraid.

    UMMMM... WTF are these Western Pleasure horses doing? I thought they had passed rules to try and get rid of the peanut rollers and the 4-beaters? Obviously hasn't changed much.

    You can find everything here. If you click on the classes for each day, you will get a list of entrants. Have fun! http://www.aqha.com/youth/activities/yws/index.html

    "lope with forward motion"? Still looks like a humped over 4-beat.

    I do see a mix of level top lines and peanut rollers. Are they rewarding the level toplines?

    I honestly do like QHs. I just don'w like what they do to them in the showring.

    PS - are they judged on how few steps they can take while walking?

    PSx2 - She's Got The Blue (Sassy) was bought as an unbroke 2 yr old by a poster on JB's board. I got to "watch" her grow up. She's a cutie.

    Oh, I like them too. I grew up in Fort Worth, so I also grew up going to the stock horse shows (APHA and ApHC World's, AQHYA World, etc.). I really do like those shows a lot - it was just so awkward to watch those horses go around.

    I did see a lot more level toplines, granted, but I didn't see one horse that wasn't 4-beating, IMO.

    I grew up in Houston in the 60's & 70's. I didn't get to go to those big shows, but all we knew down here was QHs. I used to love going to the livestock show & rodeo. I'd spend days watching the horses at the livestock show.

    They are about to do the 1st semi final round. I guess if we see more level toplines then we will know.....

    dcm, we bought her from looosssie sight unseen, from a short youtube video. She's been a delight from the minute she walked off the trailer.
