Gypsygirl, of you are inferring that I feel a hano isbette than every other breed, you are increasingly off track and playing into childish territory.
My point, is, was, and always will be that there are breeds that have been designed with various sports in mind, and as a result are going to be more suited and more successful than breeds who have been 'designed' for tasks which are not at all related.
I would certainly never expect my Hanoverians to be successful over a quarter horse in barrel racing, would not run faster than a race bred TB, would not work in harness better than a hackney, or draft breed.
So, why is it expected that any breed can go up and win at a high level of Dressage, and when beaten by a WB (which by the way does not include just the Hanoverian but a multitude of types all very much bred towards success in the dressage arena), they cry unfair and breed snobbery?
You won't see me strolling into a reining thread and shouting blue murder because I think a Hanoverian is just as good as a QH and anyone who thinks differently is a breed snob.
Get the point that I am making, NOW?
