What I'm saying is have breed registered classes.....like the AQHA etc.....then why not just put all the high point earners from all registered breeds in the ring once a year?? With reining you have the AQHA, for the quarter horses, then you have the APHA for the paint horses who have their own reining circuit etc....
It would be interesting to have something like that with the warmbloods......then have a battle of the breeds once a year.....that would be interesting!
Considering the WB breeds are so muddled, especially here in the states, I'm not sure it would be so interesting.
My horse is Swedish branded but by a Hanoverian and out of a Danish mare. What breed would he compete for?
How is it "low" for people on WBs to want to do WD?? I think it would be fun to find a western saddle and go do some different tests and get to wear a fancy rail shirt. How is it NOT elitist to say that?? Is it "low' of people with western breeds of horses to go in normal dressage?? I'm the elitist bitch, really??
I'm saying that judges are instructed to judge WD as a dressage class, it's in the rule book. Please, go read it. Email the WDAA, they are super nice. If you didn't bring back judges who judged WD as a dressage class then you would have no judges left to judge it as you must use a USEF sanctioned dressage judge to judge the classes!
