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.
