    My bad... sorry. There's still questionable practices that go on in any association, whether breed, color, or otherwise. Just because AQHA is a higher level of competition doesn't make people less cruel or greedy

    Also there is a new registry for palominos that allows horses with registered palomino parents to show even if they are not palomino in color themselves. I guess it's kind of like breedstock paint classes.

    No- If it were a generalization I would have said "There has never been a happy horse at a rated/big show Ever."
    I was stating my opinion, of which was, honestly pretty politically correct and did the job of answering the OPs question--- Don't troll on my words- when others are being way more cheeky

    But that isn't the ONLY thing he's marked on.

    I wasn't "trolling" on your words.....I was RESPONDING to what you said, so friggin' lighten up. YOU said....YOU have NEVER seen a happy horse at a rated/big show....ever. And I told you where you could actually go to SEE a happy horse at a rated/big show.

    I have seen someone literally punch their horse in the face in the middle of warm up...Angry much? I saw a stud that had cut his leg open during the night, His loving owners superglued a huge flap of skin back, spray painted it, and went into a halter class (completely lame, but still won because he had the most muscle and that's what's important, right?) People don't know how to get their horses to do what they want except through extreme discomfort and pain. Horses being shown in tiny twisted wire bits with blood in the corner of their mouths, still placing... ridiculous!. I'm not saying I'm perfect, but the day I punch my horse is the day I walk away.

    And at the breed shows (all of them) its definitely even worse. Bigger prizes=Bigger risks. I went to the palomino world a few years ago and saw a horse that had just had its tail done (fresh blood at injection sites) being schooled. I think all those fancy curtains and stall drapes are to hide all the illegal stuff going on.

    I am always glad I wasn't born a horse, because I wouldn't take half of the crap that those poor saints take.

    Ok, I'm done with my rant now, carry on
    Curious....was that an AQHA show? Because those bits are illegal and bit checks are done at every AQHA show in an Amateur and Open class.

    No, it was an open show, although they were supposed to go by AQHA rules.

    Well then here's the problem. AQHA has no authority over these open shows. It's up to the open show associations to follow the rules EXACTLY; if they claim they are following rules from a higher organization.

    I think problems come when the human desire to win outweighs the human conscience.
