Try competing in just about anything on a Gypsy Horse and you'll have to become very thick-skinned.

Lol I have legitimately never seen arab discrimination in my area of Oregon...Okay well that's a lie but I never thought it was THAT bad. xD Of course you guys are in a different area than me.

I don't appreciate breed racism. I just roll my eyes whenever someone says something like that.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

I haven't really come across any breed racism in my area, though anything that isn't a thoroughbred, quarter horse or standardbred is a bit odd to see.

I don't understand it either every horse has its place. There may be some things commonly found in certain breeds but really every horse is an idividual no matter the breed. So I have never understood it, I'm thankful I've never had to put up with it.

My two horse Apache and Sammy are my world
along with our dogs Patch and Bear.
But I will always love you Jimmy R.I.P

Sorrel: Oregon is no where near as bad as the area in California that I moved from 6 months ago but the prejudice is still here. With the Arab breed though I think that judgement will always be that way no matter the location.

Thyme: we should open our own arab thread lol

Jillybean: Oregon is awesome! I loved the truck/ferrari analogy. I got the ferrari but next on the list is a truck lol Im a beef production major... gotta have a truck lol

I wasn't even allowed to WATCH the 4H Drill Team practice in my hometown 4H group because of my breed. Lucky for me, I am a total breed snob when it comes to jerks. All of my friends ride different breeds than me. I love their horses because I love them. They tell me how pretty my horses are and I do the same. I wouldn't want a barn full of their horses, but I appreciate them.

As for colors, oh boy yes. In our breed shows, an odd colored horse has to be MUCH better than your standard chestnut/bay/black. They draw the eye more, so faults are more apparent. Same with those with a lot of white markings. That being said, grays are doing better in more recent years, and there are a few nice spotted ones. The buckskins are very new in the "rising star" category, but there are a few who are doing well.

Well a lot of people don't like cremello's but I love them. Luckily most everyone I know loves "my" Bonnie's cremello color and markings.

There's breed racists pretty much no matter what breed you own. Mustangs get all kinds of negative attention too.

I could say I don't like appys but I've owned one who was great. Same goes for ponies. I'm not a "stock horse" person but my only 2 horses are paints (it's the horses themselves not the breed that made me buy them). I don't own any other horses but am on the board of the local Arabian club lol. It's just how it goes.

You'll always hear hot blooded horses are nuts! (Arabs, saddlebreds, tb's, etc.)
You'll hear appys are stubborn, that qh's are boring, that drafts are lazy, that blue eyed horses are wild and not trustworthy, that a certain number of socks is bad, or whirls of hair effect personality... I could go on and on.

No matter what breed you own, no matter what discipline you ride, no matter what level you compete there will ALWAYS be people feeling the need to run their mouths.
