I had too many bias experiences so I try avoid it. I will occassionally at gymkhanas to do something different but I usually end up going "why did I bother?"

Well said!

In other words, it is most likely your lovely pinto did not place for reasons other than color.

That sounds cool for a person whose horse listens to others....my horse will only listen to three people.

She acts like a three year old person and tries to trick you and sees how much she can get away with.

I don't believe in the color biases. Maybe in extremely low levels where people just sign up to judge, but that's it. Like someone else said, if you aren't winning, it's not because your horse isn't bay or chesnut. "The judge doesn't place me because my horse is a Paint/pinto/Appy" has become the number one excuse when someone isn't good enough(for lack of a better phrase) to place. People have seen Moondance Alexander too many times. ETA: Also, most pintos are stock bred. Most of the accused bias come from hunter divisions, where stock horses don't have the correct movement to win in a hunter class. That is why the judge picks that TB over your paint. Not because of color.

I have a pinto, and I also competed in the Hack Division with him this year. I think that sometimes they are "too noticeable" - being that they stand out; I found the judges always had their eye on my guy, so the slightest mistake was noticed right away. This was just my scenario, and it may go the complete opposite way for others.

Regardless, I had a blast doing the hack division this year, and mostly it was an opportunity for me as a green rider to get an understanding of the different gaits etc. as well as great training for my guy, as he had never done much on the flat at shows - so we basically used it as a learning experience. We ended up making it to Championships, where he placed 8th in the pleasure hack (out of 40 horses), so I was very happy with him!
