People holding onto silly, unproven prejudices about a breed(or for that matter a gender, height, color) is unfortunate. Hating something is never good, and criticizing others for liking something different is not good either. No one should be bullied or put down for choosing to ride a horse of a different breed, height, color, bloodline or gender.
This!! It's prejudiced, not racist. And having preconceived notions about anything, horse breeds, dog breeds, people without the basis of fact or personal experience is wrong. It works either way, positive or negative. Obviously, negative can hurt a lot more.
The silly rumors and lies I hear about saddlebreds is absurd. None based on personal experience or fact. My husband still tells me he refuses to ride a saddlebred. I'm tempted to find him the craziest, bucking QH and send him on his way. I will laugh from my bomb proof Amish rescue. To bash something you know nothing about is crazy and makes me question how you feel about people who are different from you.
I firmly believe it is interconnected. If you are not accepting of other breeds, people's level of accomplishments, income levels in animals, you aren't respectful towards people either.
And yes a horse, dog, or whatever with generations and generations of proven ancestors should cost more than the byb critter with no thought to the match. Luckily there are great breeders out there who care more about the type of home their animals are going than their pocket book.
Idk. Lately I have had it with all the hate, bullying and bashing I see in the news. Idk if it is an American thing or a human thing to be so obsessed with labels and differences. You don't have to agree or be best buds, but you don't need to put others down or bad mouth either. Sent from Petguide.com Free App
