What Should We Do To Help Our Breed



by David Williams

Everyone asks “What should we do to help our breed?”, “Who is the best person to put us on the right track?”

When you get up in the morning and look in the mirror you will see the person that is going to help our breed and who will put it on the right track.

Laying the responsibility on one person or a small group of people is unfair to them, us and our horse.
There is so much to do. There are so many things many of us want for our horse.
My advice is for each of us to be one of two people. You can be a creator or a supporter.
Be the person who creates an event for our horse friends i.e. a show, a barn party, a trail ride, a trade day, a sale, a local presentation for our breed.

Create promotional items for your horses and our breed, and create stories or publications to promote our horses and our breed. Just create. It doesn’t have to be the best or the biggest. Just Create.
For those who aren’t able to create due to time or means, please support.

Support the events in your area, go to them, cheer on the participants, be a participant. Don’t sit at home and watch the world through a computer screen. Support it, Love it and Live it!

As the venues increase for our horses the exposure of our breed increases and so does the demand.
For those who know me, know I could talk at length on where the details should change on many aspects of our breed including governance, appearance, regulations, and shows but I won't bore you because we all have many great ideas and many of the same ideas on those matters.

All I would humbly ask in 2015 is for you to be a creator or a supporter or preferably both. That would be your greatest gift to our great breed of horse.
