Mercedes In most of your posts you seem quite knowledgeable but this is one area where you are very underinformed. The AQHA will register anything that has two AQHA parents. It no longer matters how much white the horse has on it, therefore, there is no risk in breeding to double registered horses. Paint horses and QH share the same type of conformation and many of the same bloodlines. You can argue all you want but that is the fact. I'm sure in many areas you are well informed but this is not one of them. Paints compete with QH's on the race track and in reining and cutting with much success. Other breeds are allowed to compete in NRHA, NCHA and NRCHA events but they have little to no success because they lack the natural drive and athletisism that is inherent in the APHA and AQHA horses.
