Color is just that.....color. If I can close my eyes while riding a horse and he feels awesome and correct, that is what matters.....when I open my eyes I don't care what color he is.

There is a difference between 'paraders' and 'performance'.....I prefer the latter.

Neither do I. But isn't it just lovely when you can have both??

This would mean having it both:

BIG CHEX TO CASH

In the real world horses who have it all at an exceedingly exceptional level are few and far between, and then pairing them with the right rider or circumstance can be a crapshoot......we cannot have our cake and eat it too, that's reality.

The original meaning is: ‘You can’t eat your cake and have it too.’
Yes- you can have both.
I believe the concept transcends just the QH world.

Kinda like this guy:

If it was so easy to have both do you not think that all you would see at the top of the leader board is horses with a lot of the popular colors? Or the high seller at the high end auctions have a lot of color? Thing is you do not. While some of the top sires on the NRHA leader list are horses of color the vast majority are not.

It is quite the opposite.

A good horse is never a bad color....

IF and only IF you have everything else in place and you can consistently turn out horses that have great conformation, and are fit for the purpose they have been bred for, only then should you be concerned about the color.

Funny the high selling horse at the NRHA Futurity prospect sale this year was a sorrel. Sold for $150K for a 2yo in training. Next high seller was also a sorrel. Funny. When it came right down to it what the sire and dam had done was more impotent then what color the horse is.
