Showing Standardbred

Just wanted to share with you a photo of Paddy and I at the local show I had today! Paddy is a standardbred who is pretty much a paddock horse nowdays. It was not only Paddy's first show, but mine too! We took out Champion Led Standardbred (by default... there wasnt anyone to compete with!!)

Although not bred for beauty, I think its really important that we get some Standardbreds out in the show ring to try and promote the breed Because anyone that owns one knows just how wonderful they really are!

Here in Australia the Standardbred Performance Horse Association is starting to include Led and Ridden Standardbred classes in local ag shows around NSW and it would be great if there were more competitors!

So just a shout out to all the Aussie Showies out there- bring along your Standy next time.. we all know you have one! Hehe.

What show was this? The background looks familiar to me.

I love my Standie, though I don't know if he'd ever win in a show. :P

Doesnt matter if you don't think he'd win anything! You never know unless you go! Bet he is gorgeous!

Ah, I've been there, but it wasn't the show I thought it was. :P

I think he's absoloutely positootly gorgeous, but a lot of people tell me he's ugly. Pffffft, who cares! He's the best horse to ride! I have more fun on him than I do on any other horse.

But seriously, what sane person can say he's ugly? :P

I think he's gorgeous!!! Just look at that face *smooches*

People are so judgemental about standardbreds and it sucks :( They werent bred for beauty, they were bred for a purpose And for a horse that wasnt bred for beauty, I think they are pretty darn shmexy anyway!

And that's what I love about these new standy classes... its a class of their own- therefore you arent trying to make them like a hack to compete against them. You get to make them look like standies, and compete against standies!

I love standies; they need to be in A LOT more shows. People don't like them, mostly because they think they are either ugly, crazy, or only for racing. If they met them and how welll they can do, we would have a lot more standie lovers.

I think my boy's bloody good looking, and he did reasonable racing too. 72 starts 12 placings and 10,000(AU) to his name. :P
I think that's pretty good.
And now he does everything I want from 12k trail rides to 2 and a half foot jumps. :)

Where are these new Standies classes? :P

Your standie is gorgeous fireyes. SB classes are starting to pop up all over the place. I think there are a few in Victoria and the albury, junee and wagga shows have classes for them around here. There are probably more too. You can probably find out more on the standardbred performance horse society website.
