I am soooo glad to hear about this new rule that AQHA is going to put into effect. FINALLY! That's one of the reasons I stopped showing on the AQHA circuit. That's the best thing I've heard from them in a loooong time
You're right N/H horses need to not only need to stop being shown and registered, but they need to stop being BRED altogether. Many of them are wonderful horses with no outward signs but its heartbreaking to see the ones that do show signs of the disease. Its simply not fair to the horses.
