We all have our favorite judges and are "least" favorite, and we all know that what ever the judges say is final and most of the time judges place the class fare. But is it fare when a judge places you in 6 out of 7 because of the breed of your horse!?
in a show that I was in I did very well in showmanship, then I went in my riding classes and I had the same judge and I was doing awful...at my last class I did perfect, then the judge placed my 6 out of 7 and said " Dear, it's not your fault you ride a applossa" OMG! She said that as she passed me my ribbon...if she doesn't like appys keep that to your self..later, I told some one and they said " oyea...she thinks all appy should be westren" that made me mad...but I keeped my cool, it just bugged me that that marked me down... any way tell me what you think..i'll try to find the video of that class

Shoot no!!!! You should have complained! That's not right or fair!!! ERRRR that ticks me She should not have done that, it's not fair to judge you on the breed of your horse, that's not what everyone is there for.

I agree that it's not fair, but here judges are very biased against coloured horses unless it's western or coloured breed classes. Only now are pally's and bucky's doing alrite in open shows. I am very against this discrimination as my pony recieves it as well ( he's a purebred welsh and Australian Ridiong ponies and pb welsh's are what's "in") however sometimes you have to accept that's the way judges are it's unfair but you can't change their opinion. I wish judges weren't descriminatory like that it sucks!

Anyways I hope this doesn't sound rude.
