    I often ask myself "what if it had been different?" When I was a young girl my parents took me to the Kentucky Horse Park where they were doing a demo and I saw my very first Saddlebred. It was love at first sight and I never looked back. My first horses were all Saddlebreds and I LOVED everything about them. I knew that there were others that didn't love them so much but there were others that had issues with every breed. That is part of life, if it isn't YOUR thing, you look at it differently. I always think, that if it had been a Quarterhorse demo, would I have been a fan of Quarterhorses? Or for that matter any other breed? Would I then look at the Saddlebreds through disapproving eyes? I believe strongly that it is all about what we are used to. I think for those of us who have opened up to other possiblities, the grass turns out to be the same on both sides of the fence. There are good things and bad about all breeds or rather, all disciplines.

    I love horses...I still prefer to own certain breeds over others but I am not a racist... maybe a tiny bit of a breedist, but if that is what having favorites is... then I am. :)
