I know it's been a little while since this topic was brought up, but I thought I would give everyone an update on him. He showed baby greens this year for his first season in small schooling shows. He was high point in his division for end of the year awards and won in the top three in everyone of his hack classes this year. We have him advertised on equine.com. If you all want to see him, search "JDS Intimidator's Gold". He is starting over fences and will be showing in the local rated circuit until he is sold.

I think for the most part, nowadays, judges don't really judge color.
It's just that the colored horses aren't always as good.
If there's a class of 30 horses and 7 colored horses and NONE of them were that good, the judge shouldn't and won't place him. But now he 'doesn't like color'. You also have to realize that in a sea of bay, you stand out. Which means EVERY mistake you make will be seen and accounted for.
I think the color thing is old and done with for the most part. It's just that the top trainers aren't picking colored horses, so MOST of the best-trained horses... are still bays. lol


omg! color does not make the horse!!!!!!!


you said..."It's just that the colored horses aren't always as good."
breeding, training, comittment, determination and trust are what make a good horse at whatever displine that you decide to do with your horse.

More often than no colored horses aren't as good because they are simply breed for color. I don't mean all the time, but a lot of the time.

But anyway, congrats! It sounds like he is doing amazing.

That may be true, but many judges as well as a lot of competitors look down on them. Stock horses in generally when you get to the higher levels.

yes many years ago they were only breeding for color. they have since perfected that and have begun breeding for both color and displines....i am use to getting the " what th heck are you doing here?" looks at the shows around here...even the higher level shows but i just smile and nod and concure them with my paint horse...which the judges do NOT like just for his color. my horses bloodlines produce very versatile, quick learning horses. go check out the late apha horse "Sacred Indian" White Harvest Farms and look at his off spring.....tell me that breeding was only ment for color. he was a grand pirx champion jumper....his off spring...jumpers( mostly), reining, pleasure, trail, driving,,,the list goes on.

Thank you! Sorry I brought this up again. It seems to be somewhat of a controversal issue.

I showed nearly 30 years ago at the Maryland National Show A rated and won with my paint/welsh pony, very flashy, great mover and jumper. I would hope that the stigma of that is totally gone by now. I think my pony actually won a lot of hack classes and some even jump based on the fact that she stood out by her color. I have not shown in years but I would hate to think that Palominos, paints or others are being given less consideration.
