Sure warm bloods may be better eventers than Arabs but Arabs are have more endurance than warmbloods! Every horse is good at something no matter how "badly put together" or "useless" they are! Just like people. It's just straight up discrimination to assume that one horse will be better than another without giving them both a chance.

There's no better way to build confidence than having a horse.

So...if I bet on the thoroughbred instead of the miniature pony to win the race, I would be discriminating? ... Certainly not, because -as you stated- certain horses are better than others at certain things (bloodlines, breed, etc). I feel as if your post has two opposing views - A. Certain horses are better at things than others; B. Judging horses because they are different is straight up discrimination.

Unless you are competeing for the upper ranks of any discipline most horses are athletic enough to do well.
Most of us are not trying to compete in the Olympics nor do we have the time, money, or abilities to do so.
You can use a QH to compete locally at dressqge, an arab at reining, a warmblood at cutting, or a fjord at team penning.
However there are horses in each breed that can compete near the top at events they are not known for.
to discount any breed as a whole makes no sense. sooner or later you will be proven wrong. Shalom
