Maybe this is a naive observation but I think it's just silly that "solid color paints" can show in APHA show but a paint cannot show at a AQHA show. So solid color paints that are double registered can show both & normal paints get the rear end of the deal. Anyone agree?

Keep in mind that Solid Paints are still limited to only certain special APHA Solid Paint show classes....

Yeah but then shouldn't paints have a class at AQHA shows too then to be fair? I don't know, I just thought it was kind of not fair.

Why would the AQHA allow classes for horses that are outcropped and, according to their rules of registration, not quarter horses (at least not correct ones, who could pass on the genes for more outcrops which they do not want) to compete? Many of the outcropped QHs out there have a paint parent (not all I'm sure! Don't flame me...) and therefore can most likely be registered paint and shown through the APHA circuit.

Maybe I'm totally off on that, someone is welcome to correct me nicely if I'm wrong.

In my eyes, if the horse can't be registered with an organization due to it's rules (in this case a paint with too much white who doesn't have a quarter horse parent cannot be registered AQHA) then no...they can't be shown, that's not unfair that's just the rules. Go show else where, like APHA or Pinto or and open show. If you'd like to show at AQHA buy an AQHA registered horse. (sorry that that comes across snarky in print, I'm not trying to be mean.)

I'm not trying to grill you, just ask you a logical question and give my honest opinion.

Honest, no grilling...I even said sorry for the fact that post seems snarky!

They don't have classes for solid Paint and QH shows because.. they're Paints. Not QH's. Two separate breeds. UNLESS the horse is the product of two QH parents and before both APHA and AQHA changed their rules, and had to be registered as a Paint because it was a "crop out" due to having too much white.. you cannot register a Paint as a QH. Aside from the ones that have dual registry because of being crop-outs, a Paint =/= a QH.

Just out of curiosity for people's answers (and please don't comment if you know me because then you likely already know lol) ;)...

Is this mare a Paint or a QH?
