    I've never heard of Paints being bashed. Around the open shows in my area, people use Paints for just about anything. They're actually pretty popular in the hunter ring around here. We have a pretty good variety of horses and riders and fortunately most of them are decent people. Thoroughbreds are the ones who get made fun of here. My farrier teases me relentlessly about my "big **** overgrown pony".

    Just ignore the morons who bash your horse. They don't know any better.

    People always tell me that tbs can't make in it the hunterjumper rings. And that my horse can't make it in the eq. Ring which is probably true. Not that there aren't some fantastic tbs in the eq ring.

    You might want to take an unbiased look at your horse's conformation, movement, way of going and jumping form. Those may be the reasons for his lack of acceptance in hunters or dressage, not his color.

    Like I said. The people who say it are usually the ones saying it before they even glance at my horse.
    It may not be biased in ur area. But it is here.

    Jumpers are not judged so color pattern does not matter squat. If the horse can clear the course fastest it wins.

    I know that, I compete in Jumpers. I was referring more to discrimination by other competitors in that case, not by the judges themselves. Verbally hearing that your horse isn't worthy just because he's a different colour isn't any fun either. I've heard people make comments such as, "What, you're going to jump that thing?" or "That's a funny looking Thoroughbred!" when we've brought "coloured" ponies to Jumper shows. I realise they meant nothing malicious by those comments, and were just trying to be funny, but it still goes to show that people definitely take a second look & sometimes think it's "strange" to see a non-plain coloured horse step into the arena.

    Let them talk, it doesn't effect your horse. Unless the judge says somewhere on the notes or to you that he didn't place the horse/lowered his score solely because of his breed or color, then you can't conclude that it is discrimination.
