    Okay sorry this has turned into a converstation about paints in the hunter ring. I have to say I am shocked to find there is still stimga. I was at an A show a few weekends ago and there were virtually NO paints. We were chatting with a nice lady there who said she had found a great pony for her daughter but her trainer would not even consider the it because it was "colored." I was surprised.

    I showed back it the early 80s on a local circuit and cleaned up with my paint colored pony. I can't believe there is still stigma attached to "coloered" horses.

    That is a shame.

    It is a shame, but there are still many "old school" judges out there that won't pin a paint/pinto simply because of its color. The stigma is still out there, though I'm glad to hear it isn't as bad as it used to be.

    I agree apparently its better but I can't believe is even a question nearly 30 years since I was the only one on my circuit showing a paint pony. I did take her to at least one A show a year (Maryland) and we did win there and that was probably 1979,80,81,82 or so. Stupid people.

    Anyway to OP, I love your horse and you look cute in the last pic.... get some conf shots and vids. And don't let the anti colors judges get you down

    It depends on how he moves and if he has a nice jump but he is very cute

    Ok here are some videos.

    Keep in mind he is three. And we r working on leads and balanceness currently.
    So everything you see is his naturalness(if that makes sense) he has had only a little of bit of training.

    He seems very cute. Sadly, hunters does have a bias towards solid color horses. It's just how it is. But I seem them all the time at shows here and they are starting to become more accepted. You just have to be prepared for some of your judges to count against you because they don't like paints. There will always be those judges that don't actually judge you on hat they should be. I had to learn that the hard way. It's a hard pill to swallow. But if he seems like a fun, safe mount he could probably be a good guy for you.

    Facebook won't let me se them. Try photobucket or youtube

    He is very cute from what I can tell in the pics ... what level are you planning to work up to with him?

    Like others have mentioned, here in CA the A shows are very competitive and most colored horses aren't looked at too highly in the hunter ring- but jumpers will take anyone :)
