Up where I live, in open shows all you ever see are QH's and Paints. It's the English breeds that are discriminated against over here. I rode a National Show Horse in English classes(this is a horse that places hgily in dressage)and that whole day we placed low or not at all. I spent the day having people go, "what is that thing?" obviously, its a horse. Discrimination does happen, especially if the judges are used to seeing the same breeds over and over again. That's just my opinon though.
To see the wind's power, the rain's cleansing, and the sun's radiant life, one need only to look at the horse.
