I find this a little odd, but I tend to face it a lot. I own an Arabian and I get a lot of remarks and negative comments about my horse because of his breed. In a field of QH's and TB's I always get dirty looks and I have even had someone tell me I should "give him some vitamin B" B as in bullet.
Its not just the Arabs that get it too! My best friend owns a stocky old style QH and her trainer told her to sell him if she ever wanted to go anywhere in the horse world.
It bugs me that people are that inconsiderate. Sure, they may just be voicing their opinion and some breeds are better at certain things than others, but sometimes its nice to keep those comments to yourself.
I don't know, maybe it's because I hear about the stigma surrounding Arabs, TB's and other 'picked on' breeds a lot, that I notice this sort of thing, but I just find it rediculas.
