It will definitely be interesting to see what comes of this meeting. I still would not be surprised if AHA pulls out of USEF, I do think they will give in to pressure IF it is being exerted.

I'm so tired of hearing about renegade groups that want to make up their own rules. With dwindling registrations and participation in shows do we really need to fracture things even further?

Agreed.

This move reminds me of the bratty kid who takes his ball and goes home.

Glad to see AHA sent out a statement. Thank you Tranquilo for sharing. For some reason I don't get e mail blasts from AHA

Sadly, that removes any any optimism that this move was a focus on the National show in general and not just a halter club.
Though I wish that had been the case.

There is a reason those of us who have been around the breed for so long are cynical.

I wonder if other breed organizations are as fractured as ours?  It seems like there's always a 'new' something.  As we look at registration figures for the last couple of years, one thing is apparent, we are in trouble as a breed!  But I don't think more glamour shows are going to improve the problem.

 

How many of you have heard people saw - I used to own (or my mother, Dad etc) an Arabian and loved it.  It was a great horse that would do everything.  I've heard that a lot here, but they don't own Arabian horses any more!  What we should be asking is WHY not?

I still have Arabians like that, but people here don't want that. The overshod barbiedoll horses won't make the general public love Arabians. So the general public buys stock horses.

I was not "slamming you again" OHR.  You made a very negative comment about something you know nothing of. (Anyone who thinks the comment was positive in ANY way, please raise their hand).  This used to be a fun and informative thread made up of people from all areas of the Arabian horse spectrum, sadly it has dwindled to nearly nothing.  More than one person stated their reason for not coming here was being attacked and the nasty attitudes displayed by some.  I pretty much quit posting anything about my horse showing because several people thought they had the right to tell me everything that was wrong about it from the headset, to the shoes, to me being one of the "blind elite".  Anyway, count me among those who are bowing out.  I'm attempting to dispatch anything in my life that contains negativity and sadly that now includes ABN.

I'm sorry to see you leave, Kathy, I enjoyed your posts.  I read OHR's post the same way you did.  


There are other viewpoints about this at several different FB pages and there are some decent people backing it.  I'm going to wait to see what comes out the meeting.  I'm not sure it's helpful but I want to hear their reasons for starting another show.


Keep on the sunny side, always on the sunny side, keep on the sunny side of life...
