    Showing Paint Partbred

    Im looking at buying a Quarter Horse x Paint gelding. I want to use him fro pleasure riding really, but maybe doing some halter down the track with him. I was wondering, if I showed him in a paint class, would we get marked down as he is solid? Do you thing judges would pick the paint colouring of another horse over conformation of a solid paint?

    They're put in separate classes. The APHA considers solids to be "lesser" and therefore has classes for colored horses and separate classes for solids.

    Not exactly fair because the horse did not choose to come out without spots, but it's the way it is. As another SPB owner, I can't say I'm all too impressed with it although I don't show.

    Thank you for clearing that up Poisedon! Also..what colour western halter would look better? I myself LOVE dark oil western halters... however the gelding is brown... I don't like the light oil/tan colour ones...

    Is he registered as solid? I can't remember if blue eyed horses are given regular papers or not..

    If he is registered solid, he's a perfect example of the APHA still registering horses as solids although they carry a white pattern. Mine is a buckskin frame, although she is solid.

    What do you mean by 'regular papers' with his eye colour? Sorry but im new to the paint world!

    Blue eye color alone does not register a regular register paint. You need at least two inches of white above the knee, or two inches of white from the corner of the mouth.
