    I own a draft cross in a cowboy area. If it isn't a stock horse, it isn't worth much...or at least that's the attitude. I get funny looks because of my big pinto beastly...even from the owners of other "outcasts" (arabs, TBs, etc).

    I can honestly say that I am not breed or color racist. Yes, there are breeds and colors I like better than others, but there's none that I absolutely do not like.

    I agree with the person above me personaly my favriot color is black or browns but other colors are great to. Pintos get a lot of hate in my barn we have 3 pintos my favriot is this big fat mongolian pony who is so smart he is the perfect bareback horse the BO , grooms etc hate him for his color and size. But kids love him

    I constantly get "No offense, but I don't usually like arabs, but you've always had nice ones..." Uh...that's because they ARE great horses, not just because I know how to pick them.

    /shrug
    I feel like I could never have anything but an arabian, no matter what. I just love the breed.

    We used to have a Missouri Fox Trotter, given he was NOT a cattle horse whatsoever. We would haul him to ropings trying to desensitize him, and we'd gather cattle on him. Got a lot of laughs because "That 'dare horse jus' don't move right'"...according to the old cowboys... Always kept things interesting.

    I wouldn't worry about your TB getting ridiculed for too much longer. TBs are starting to regain popularity in the hunter/jumper world for their pure athleticism. Tides they are a changin'.

    I actually know more people who are absolute TB snobs and those who dislike them. In eventing and in jumpers. It is ridiculous. One girl I know has an appendix, but she's such a snob she tells people her horse is a TB.

    I have zero interest in owning a draft or gaited horse. I would never however put them down or laugh at anyone for owning one.
    Unless you tried doing endurance on a clydesdale. Now that deserves a laugh.
    I ahve ridden both types and enjoyed them.
    I prefer a "hot" horse therefore my choice of breeds. I do own a couple of TBs and QHs. Every breed has its positive traits and most have individuals that can do things the breed is not noted for.
    You just have to give them a chance. Shalom

    Getting called snobby in every. Single. Thread. For riding a WB in dressage, or suggesting that because they are bred for it, they are a more suitable mount for someone looking to compete and excel.

    God forbid someone suggest a QH would be superior for cutting, an arab for endurance or a WB for dressage.

    For dressage I would do warmblood from intermediate. Its true watmbloods are better for it not saying TBs and QH etc can't do it. Jumping is different TBs have gone up to grand prix level like Anne Kurdunskis Eros he was a great OTTB jumper
