[RC] Breeds competing - Michael Maul

In response to:"I wonder how many of the "grade" horses competing are unregistered purebred Arab geldings? I'd say most of the grade horses I know have been. It's a shame there's not a "breed category" for unregistered purebreds just to keep the stats in perspective."
Some owners already just use the AHR(Arabian) category for breed and don't give a registry number in cases like this. I don't see a problem in doing it.

AERC doesn't check this or care how you enter it. I'd guess that others do think they need a registry number so enter grade or other.

I did a column on how different breeds did in the placings for EN Feb 2004


Only 4.6% were grade while about 82% were Arabs or Arab crosses.

So while I agree that some owners of purebred unregistered Arabians do put grade - I think the number is small.

We certainly could add a category for unregistered Arabians and we could encourage owners to use AHR w/o a registry number.
