Training disciplines:

  • Park, English, and Country English Pleasure horses are all horses with an upright frame and solid hindquarter engagement. The three divisions do have differences in the amount of athleticism, engagement attitude, and animation. Horses shown in these divisions do need to demonstrate strong elastic movement and present themselves in a comfortable way.
  • Hunter Pleasure horses are those with a longer, more rectangular frame with the neck carried in a comfortable position for that individual. These horses have some arch to their necks and some bend at their poll. Strides should be long and ground covering, and appear efficient in their operation.
  • Western Pleasure horses are comfortable movers with strides of a reasonable length for the conformation of the individual horse. They should demonstrate maximum efficiency of movement. The placement of the head and neck are unique to the individual and should be in a natural position. The western horse must give the impression of being a pleasure to ride.
