Jeez! You guys make me afraid to go to a horse show. I used to show jumpers, where all you had to beat was the clock. I've switched to Dressage and am hoping to go to my first show at the end of the summer. I hope the judges don't over look me and the paint horse I'll probably take.

I just started in a local arabian-hosted all breed buckle series and certainly, the arab judges love to place arabs! But in my opinion, our judges so far have been excellent about being fair. You have to realize-- humans are not by nature objective creatures. ;)

It's happened to me at a regional open circuit. I took on my QH's (a 2 YO filly) in Colt & Fillies class.....the judge was an ASB/Morgan/Arab just...guess what happened.
