As Painter said. you do what you want with your horse. If you wish to do breed shows go for it. Don't let one bad result or people with negative comments deter you. As for halter showing at breed shows I do often wonder. When I look at some of the most successful halter horses they do look nothing like what a standardbred horse should look like. Or had faults that should have seen them at the bottom of the line up. And before anyone has a go at me for bagging someone elses horse, one of the horses I am referring to was one of my own. But a breed show is a breed show and the result in that breed is one persons opinion. If you get upset over the result, don't go. Its as simple as that.
