    As an aside , I had a TB mare who just made premium with RPSI, was not premium with ISR but was in the top 20 mares nationwide for AHS ( including all Han mares). Just goes to show you they are all looking for something a little different
    With all due respect Doc.....with what I have seen Otto approve , I'm not sure he has anything in mind but the check. Sway backed 3 year old , multiple stallions with severely crooked legs , stallions that can't jump and everything in between.

    In my opinion , they are a money for paper registry and I have no respect.

    Reese,
    I can't speak for the stallions- have never seen any inspected but my TB mares have been scored harder by ISR than anyone else. RPSI next and AHS the easiest. Personally, I think all of them are ultimately about the check....

    Yep....it's a shame. They are doing the breeders a disservice because most believe what they say. They are in the buisness of registering horses ,not selecting the best breeding stock and not helping the breeders get better.
