I tried to explain that no, that's what happens when you clip a horse & this filly is indeed brown based meaning she cannot wake up one morning and turn into a black dun. I have been directed to her website because this was somehow going to prove that she was right and I was wrong. It then became obvious why I'll never win that debate. Aside from the fact that they aren't sure which less than exemplary stallion is the sire of the filly but they're going to guess based on color and register the filly accordingly... I thought this Quarter Horse left in tact to be used as a breeding animal - at a "trainers" who is "training" him wearing sneakers, riding bareback with a halter under the bridle of which the nose band is loose, direct reining with a pinchy and confusing tom thumb bit which is designed more for neck reining & in addition said "trainer" appears to have attached the reins to the place that a chin strap belongs ? - was a nice picture choice and clearly good for his marketing campaign!

Some really terrible pictures on this website - the horses look like crab, sure, all horses don't look very flattering in their winter fur, but with that AND the angle of the pictures - scary!
Only thing where I have to say that there is nothing wrong is the way how the reins are snapped into the bit. It's a training bit with two sets of rings for the reins - the lower ones are to use the bit as a curb, the higher ones are to use the bit like a snaffle, thus draw reining is okay in this case. The chin strap goes in the rings that attach the bit to the bridle. I like to use this kind of a bit when I go from the plain snaffle to a curb bit, it can be ridden with two sets of reins as well.
Now, training a horse without a saddle I call unprofessional ... but that's just me ;)
