Yea... it is really sad. I have to agree there... that's why I don't do appaloosa shows. My appaloosas run in open shows. I do cutting jackpots all over FL against QH. And compete and sometimes win riding against $50,000 qhs that would put most appaloosas to shame.
The quality of training in the appaloosa world is VERY poor because it doesnt take much to win... that's why I compete against the best I can find. I figure if I can atleast hold my own with the QHs... I can do great in Nationals.
Many people have sighed for the 'good old days' and regretted the 'passing of the horse,' but today, when only those who like horses own them, it is a far better time for horses. ~C.W. Anderson
