Part of your arguements are valid, but you are far from objective! From reading your posts, no abuse goes down in Saddlebred breeds. Hate to break it to you, but there is abuse in every breed, and this thread, is doing nothing but encouraging the breed stereotypes.
I thought you wanted an "educational" thread, and this is far from it. I have not seen you post one thing that is derogatory to Saddlebreds, yet you constantly post derogatory statements about Walkers.
Heck yes I am going to stand up for my breed, because I am surrounded by responsible breeders who have to deal with people like you! There are far more then just big lick walkers. Come up to Alberta and meet our show crowd. Not a single horse wears chains or pads, and their gaits are NATURAL, born walking. Now I know your horses wear chains to enhance their gait! Mine sure don't!
You apparently haven't read many of my posts, because I've said a million times that I am talking about big lick Walkers in this thread, not natural ones. I'm well aware that there is more to the breed. I also stated that you WILL find abuse in Saddlebreds, as much as you will find in any other breed. It just isn't comparable to the big licks.
