Yesterdays thread was closed, and I really hope this one lasts because I really do not want this one to become a bashing WP. OK, I do not understand it, I said that yesterday I believe, but those who do train and compete explain it better for me please. What is the history? What where the WP horses of yesteryear like? What are horse judged on? How do good trainers train the gaits? What are the short cuts and abuses that the less than honest and ethical use to win?
