the classes are typical of those in Texas and Tenn. Some of the CP horses should definately be in TP and some of the TP horses should be in CP. I think that CP should be for the horse that does not have as much action as TP but is still a pleasure to ride and look at. I do think the CP horse should walk but just not have as deep a head shake or as much rear end reach as the TP horse. But if the CP horse has on a keg shoe and does that much with the keg shoe, it is legal for him to be in CP. These are the ones that usually win. I feel like if the horse always wins in CP, then the rider should move up as an act of courtesy to TP.
I would agree. If a horse is successful at TP they should not move back to CP just to add to their ribbon count.
