Western Pleasure gait

I support the efforts of Carol Harris and others to restore a natural gait to the Western Pleasure horse. This issue is hurting the entire industry. I propose that judging credentials be lifted if judges fail to follow standards after one warning. Horses that don't offer a natural gait at a lope should be disqualified, and if no horse in a class meets standards, there should be no winner. AQHA simply MUST be more proactive on this issue.
