WOW, I'm not sure were to begin, I have read a ton of information, talked to a ton of people, and still don't understand what the hell is the problem. I really have to get a check up because I believe in the human race. I truly feel that people are not all that bad.
Over the last year, I have worked pretty hard to prove to myself that people just need a chance to express themselves and in time will all come to the best conclusion.
My one concern is the Arabian horse, on ABN. I work to keep a clean and safe environment for all individuals to come and express themselves, Yes, we have some characters, mostly all very good intentioned people.
I decided to mass email the petition.. because I believe in what it stands for. It stands for the Arabian horse, and against the abuse of our horses. I think I have earned and paid for the right to say, “In the hands of many of todays trainers our horses are suffering from many different forms of abuse” The fact that halter is a very “In your face” case.. is the main reason this Score Card, must be successful. Our future depends on it. The performance ring in my mind is much worse, we have lost the true horseman.
Well, for me I am personally disgusted. I actually thought this “release” was going to be Scottsdale setting the pace. for the rest of the Arabian show community.. But I guessed and bet wrong. From a business stand point I guess in some bizarre way I can see there point, change can be a scary thing.
If this resolution is passed it will be the hall mark for the END of main ring.
I don't post all that much anymore, this board keeps me really busy... lots of people and lots of horses to help promote... reading this I'm sure makes a lot of the grammar and spelling folks nuts.. LOL sorry, I'm not a wordsmith...
Please stop the maddness.

Once the score card is used at AHA shows, won't that put the Vegas show out of business? Same group?
I'm really starting to believe in a "conspiracy theory" a little humor, or is it?
