yeah i know.... in australia if you even think about competing with anything thats not a warmblood or used to race on a track, and it has even the smallest fleck of a different colour they mark you down. although i must say that its slowly changing!!!! which is good makes life more intersting.
awwh, that's rubbish, here in the uk we have CHAPS which is the Coloured Horse And Pony Society, so at most big shows you get classes just for coloured horses, which is cool! but kinda odd cos you get all these horses of different types and conformations competing in the one class, though they are sometimes split by height, but yeah it's really cool to see
