True palomino confusion??

Ok so Dickie the Palomino I ride is a really nice palomino I can show him but I can't show him as a true palomino because he has dapples... why can't palominos be shown with dapples?? I find the Dapples very pretty and unique... as they arent to noticeable and not to dull.. they add to his personality
Heres some pictures of Dickie so you can see his special dapples...:)

That's odd, it was my understanding that when a horse dapples up it means they are healthy and have a good skin and coat? Even my bay dapples in the summer.

Thats what I thought but.. Dickie got taken to a show as you can see the pics are from that day and he wasnt aloud to complete against the "true palominos" because of his dapples...

WOW! That's different. I love dapples on everything. Don't worry about the palamino classes. Apparently your horse can win dispite his dapples. He's absolutely gorgous!!!!

That's ridiculous! A ton of horses have dapples, and from what I've seen a lot has to do with their coat condition. My grulla went from having none, to quite a few after getting her back to health.

I live in the U.S., so the answers below are for the U.S. I can't answer for rules in Australia.

Palomino is a color breed. A palomino horse must be registered with the Palomino Horse Breeders of America (PHBA) and the exhibitor must also be a current member of PHBA to show in sanctioned classes or shows. When I looked at the PHBA website for registration rules, there was no mention of dapples being an unacceptable marking. Anyway, here is the link to the registration rules on the PHBA website. I hope this helps.

You can show him in colour classes.. he just won't win/place.
