    Hmmmm but the breed sometimes (most of the time) can and will determine the horses characteristics/traits/attitude.......as those things are what causes most of us to develop an opinion. If a horse is bred solely to excel at one thing and its brains were left behind 4 generations ago then I'd say its not the breed for me......really if anyone has half a brain and doesn't do their research on how an animal of any breed has been bred, for example 'show' dogs and 'working' dogs, 'halter' bred horses and 'working' stock......then they will probably end up with something they don't want and don't like.

    I can appreciate any well bred animal of any breed of horse, but that doesn't mean I'm going to run out and buy certain breds. Some have more appeal to me than others. Just how it is. As Muppet put it, it's the same with dogs. There are certain dogs I will not buy.

    What I am trying to say is even you don't want that breed it doesn't mean that they are all bad horses and that nobody should get that certain breed.

    I don't think anyone here has ever said that. I may not prefer a particular breed, but that doesn't mean I think every horse within that breed is bad or that the breed is wrong for someone else.

    If you know people like that, maybe you should distance yourself from them. There are certain breeds I won't willingly own, but I certainly don't roll my eyes or think someone else is stupid for having one.

    I don't think that it's right for people to stereotype a breed into being all good horses or awful horses. Each breed has their own strengths. Personally, I will probably never own a friesan, because I do WP, but that doesn't mean that friesans are awful because they are not made to do what discipline I do.

    I don't think I have a BREED I actually hate, as a whole... But there are breeds who tend to have traits I have zero use for and as a result would be almost totally unlikely to own one.

    There are also breeds who tend to carry traits that mean I wouldn't suggest them, as a whole, to someone else as a potential breed option. For example, I would be highly unlikely to recommend someone who was just starting with horses LOOK FOR a TB or WB for their first horse... If one came along that suited them I wouldn't rule it out on breed alone, but they just aren't breeds who come immediately to mind when I think "first horse".

    As a Saddlebred owner, I do understand the breed bias frustration but, on the whole, I'd say that a nice horse, regardless of breed, will get the recognition it deserves. One of my Saddlebred mares certainly got comments like "well, you can expect her to not do any better, she is a Saddlebred" or "she did well, for a Saddlebred"... But those were on days that just weren't going as well for us (we all have those, no matter what breed we ride), on the days where things were spot on - she won (even with the very same judges who had left her at the bottom of the class a few weeks before). Sometimes what appears to be breed bias is actually just a reflection of how that day is going. (And sometimes, sadly it is real)

    As someone who loves Saddlebreds, especially that one mare, it can feel frustrating when other people didn't just immediately see her for the gem I see her as - but, I have enough experience to know that some days, she really doesn't share those qualities quite as obviously either On our "we got this!" kind of day we have made some converts of people who previously hated the breed based on misconceptions. (And if I can entice someone to ride one... Then they forget they ever hated them at all )

    As past owner of Appaloosas and a current owner of an Arabian, I know EXACTLY what she's talking about. I live in "if it ain't a QH or a Paint .. it ain't sh!t" country! Lol.

    Even my farrier told me that my Arabian was "pretty nice ... for an Arab" ..

    My mare is PRETTY NICE... period!
    HAHA!
    You sound like you live in Alberta!

    Wait, wait... Alberta IS the Texas of Canada. LOL

No. I was attacked by a German Shepherd as a child.......what I like and don't like is my prerogative......

    Also, I don't think 'breed racism' is the term your looking for......

    Just when I thought we could get along....
