Western Show RiderWestern Pleasure

Western Pleasure is a class in which the Western-type horse is ridden in the show ring and judged at a walk, trot, and lope in both directions. The horse is ridden on a loose rein.

The American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA) defines Western Pleasure:

Contestants compete simultaneously, traveling the perimeter of the arena, and at the discretion of the judge, are asked to walk, jog, lope and reverse the direction of the horse. Horses are evaluated on quality of movement while staying quiet and clam, traveling on a loose rein.
