Re: [RC] Gaited horse statistics - Sharon Levasseur

I bet I wasn't the only person who thought since my horse didn't have a
registration number, I wasn't ALLOWED to choose half-Arab.

I'll be making the change soon, thanks.  Although, if there WAS a "gaited"
designation I think I would not mark it, as the trot is our endurance gait of
choice.  His foxtrot is too slow.  The only reason I ever tell anyone he's
gaited is that the vets sometimes see him foxtrot and if I didn't tell them in
advance they'd definitely be surprised!!

Thanks,
-Sharon L. & Zephyr the Arab/RMH



Quoting Michael Maul <mmaul@xxxxxxxxx>:

Laney,

The categories we have now just "grew" in response to member requests
for their particular breed.

If I had to guess - half Arab means that the horse is listed in the
partbred section of the AHA registry and that Arab cross is not.  I
could be wrong on this.  In the partbred AHA records - we can get
pedigrees for AAHR and HAHR.

I personally would chose grade only if I didn't have any clue what the
breed was.  Other is if none of the other 59 categories fits but is a
real breed.

There are certainly  horses that gait and the owner doesn't have a clue
what they are.

At the Old Glory ride last w/e, I was riding behind a gal and noticed
she wasn't posting.  I asked her what type of gaited horse she was
riding and she didn't know.  She certainly liked riding him though.

Making sure your horse is listed correctly in the records helps us get
better statistics for breed awards as well as just better data.

Maybe the time has come to really encourage people to update their
horses' information.  I wish that the "arab cross" and "half arab"
groups could be combined because they are the same thing.  However, it
would be very nice to know what the other "half" or "cross" is too. If
folks are interested in whether a horse is gaited or not, there should
be a way to indicate that for breeds where it wouldn't be normal.  That
would include even "arab cross" and "half arab."  There are also gaited
appaloosas, morgans and quite a few others, including "arab" and
certainly "grade."
