Maar wat is dan weer 'langere tijd' maw hoeveel passen. Of is dat ter beoordeling aan de jury, wat dus weer heel wisselend kan zijn.
En een paard met lange oren is dus ook weer in het voordeel.
A good pleasure horse has a free-flowing stride of reasonable
length in keeping with his conformation. He should cover a reasonable
amount of ground with little effort. Ideally, he should have a
balanced, flowing motion, while exhibiting correct gaits that are of the
proper cadence. The quality of the movement and the consistency of
the gaits is a major consideration. He should carry his head and neck
in a relaxed, natural position, with his poll level with or slightly
above the level of the withers. He should not carry his head behind
the vertical, giving the appearance of intimidation, or be excessively
nosed out, giving a resistant appearance. His head should be level
with his nose slightly in front of the vertical, having a bright expression
with his ears alert. He should be shown on a reasonably loose
rein, but with light contact and control. He should be responsive, yet
smooth, in transitions when called for.
