Breed Bashing - Yes


Go reread the emails about the Appy's, and yes, it is breed bashing.  And it 
is not just from that series of emails that makes those of us who own other 
than Arabs get defensive.  Go to the archives and see the response when 
people ask about buying a horse other than an Arab.  It gets down right 
abusive, basically people saying that your stupid for wanting something 
other than an Arab for endurance.

Another reply to this string was that Arabs are the majority of winners, 
which I will agree with.  But if Appaloosas, Morgans, Standardbreds, 
Throroughbreds or whatever has years of breeding programs selectively 
breeding for this sport, and 80% of the horses riding were these breeds, 
then they would be the top finishers.
