Wow, take a look at these archives. Video horse world posted this western pleasure class from the 1988 Quarterama in Canada. At this time this show was the largest AQHA show in North America after Congress. The class size is huge and the stands are full of spectators! The show was so big that they had two trade show arenas and Panasonic television as one of their sponsors! Watch the video below.
Western pleasure has certainly changed a bit since 1988, but so have a lot of other things. I love the forward motion from 1988, but I also love how today’s pleasure horses are so engaged through their entire bodies. I think it’s safe to say that I just love western pleasure! Share this on Facebook if you do too!
