I have said time and time again that for a pleasure mount I have and will always prefer a nice QH. But god forbid anyone suggest that the horse which is superior at a certain sport is one which is bred for it. No one ever called a cutter snobby for riding a QH, or an endurance rider snobby for only buying arabians, etc.
Some of us don't strive to get a 62% in the dressage ring. Most countries have a minimum standard of 67% in the special to qualify for international championships. I don't understand how striving towards a minimum standard is at all "snobby", please, explain that to me.
