You should have absolutely no problem selling a palimino as a hunter. Are barn has had hundreds of paliminos come in for sale. They were all different sizes (pony to horse) and all different colors (golden-chocolate). My friend even owned a palimino hunter and she won almost every show she went too.

It is not just a horse,
It is the one thing that keeps me from being just a girl

I honestly don't see why people have to make a big deal out of a colour (the judges).

They mark the horse on what the horse can do, not it's colour lmao.

Like I was told greys are bad in the show ring, haha.. the next breath my grey gelding won champion galloway hack..

Just shows you hey

Never heard of greys being an issue. Paints or buckskins on the other hand...

haha wow really?
I was told greys are bad in the show ring!

Yeah I have heard of Paints and stuff being bad in the show ring..
Not sure why though, there beautiful.

When I was in my Supreme class there was a palomino pony and it got Supreme champion out of all of us.

It was judged on how well the work out was done, movement.
Heh, People these days!

The hunter ring is all about floating and blending in. Having a horse and rider partnership that is so smooth and flowie that it is supposed to be hard to pick out mistakes.

The second you come in with a palomino or a paint or even buckskin for that matter you pretty much break the first rule. If you are lucky you can sometimes run into judges that aren't bias to color but as posted before it is unfortunate and ridiculous thing you will run into, in the "hunter world".

I do agree that there has always been a discrimination against palominos in the hunter ring. My first horse was a palomino Appendix and none of my trainers ever approved of her. Although she was a pretty mover and a nice jumper, I was always told that she would always be looked down on because she was colored. Every trainer I worked with and clinic I went to, people tried to talk me into selling my "yellow" horse.
My mom had found the gelding I that we are trying to sell in a bad situation. He was a 3 year old who had never been ridden and was kept alone in a round pin. We bought him, thinking that he would be trained as a western pleasure horse. He is now 6 and has a much better liking for english. He has a long and low floaty movement and the calm temperment that is to die for in the hunters. But him being a palomino is a concern for me because of my previous experience in this issue. So, we are stuck in this spot where we have this horse who would be a wonderful hunter, but we feel that ecspecially in the current market it will be hard to sell him as a hunter.
