    In gaming events at Appy breed shows horses run against eachother, not a clock. So the winner goes on to run several more times against more horses. Most horses mind of any breed can't handle that stress, so usually they will become gate sour. I've seen a few Appys around here who used to do breed shows, I wouldn't ever want on them. Others who've done normal open shows though are perfectly fine like most barrel horses.

    You have a point, sort of.

    If a horse hasn't been managed well, it can't handle horse against horse. And some individuals can't handle it regardless of management. But, those individuals are not run horse against horse, at least not by those of is whobare responsible. Many of them go on to be successful rodeo horses.

    Out of the six appy barrel horses that I've run horse against horse, only one was ever gate sour. That issue started one winter when we were doing junior rodeos, though, not at breed shows. And I was 11, and not experienced enough to get him over it. I only do horse against horse at Nationals, and if I've worked hard enough, Worlds. Almost all of the regional shows I've been to don't run horse against horse because arenas are too small or there are not enough exhibitors.

    Just my. 02.

    I never said horse against horse caused it. Running over and over again can cause horses to break down. Like I said "most" horses don't have the mental ability to handle it. Some do though, I've just seen many that were ruined by that.

    That's my .02 that has nothing to do with breed or color.

    Sorry for getting all defensive. I've dealt with a few people lately who think my chosen sport is cruel.

    Most of the horses I've come across that are mentally exhausted DO run a lot. But even more importantly, it's all they do. Their riders don't do anything else with them.

    I always give my horses, regardless of breed or discipline, other jobs to do, like trail riding or moving cattle. Things that keep them in shape and allow them to relax. I also don't practice patterns regularly once they know what they're doing.

    OP, sorry I hijacked your thread.

    It's ok :)
    And I agree with your tactics. I used to own a horse who in the wrong hands could have easily been blown up badly.

    Now on with the funny color theories!

    Palominos can't jump nor do they like to jump. I beg to differ...
