Funny how where you are pinto's don't often get placed... where I am judges seem to love pintos! Well, along with every other color out there. My experience is that judges judge based on how well the horse and rider perform. Grant it, there have been times where I haven't even been looked at, but overall I pretty much agree with all of the judges placings. After shows (I pretty much only show 4-H, so it's pretty low key) I ask the judges for a critique on my performance. They are always nice and willing to help me out, and it's a great way to learn what you need to work on!

99 times out of 100, the people screaming about breed or color prejudice are the ones who didn't place.

You didn't place because the other horses and riders were better than you, not because the judge didn't like your horse's color or breed. That's ludicrous in the extreme.

Sour grapes, that's all it is.
