Amen, Heidi, I cannot TELL you how tired I am of seeing the accolades going to horses in the Arabian breed who apparently have noting better they can do but jig about the ring and then stand stretched like a giraffe, all glossy and shaved...sigh! the real ultimate insult is the small but annoying coalition of Arabian owners who want halter reclassified as a "performance class".
