Please make some effort to explain your case - this is disrespectful to the staff who handle these requests.
They do a lot for Equus and the very LEAST you can manage is to explain what you want, what you've found, link relevant images, and pull relevant information out of your links.
It is their job to approve your evidence, not decipher the importance of random links attached to numbers with no context.
Accepted The following pony breeds may now enter flat racing:
-Welsh Mountain Pony (Section A)
-Welsh Pony (Section B )
-British Sport and Riding Ponies
-Swedish Riding Ponies
-Grade (Pony) and International Sport Ponies, if their breed percentage is realistic for racing (will vary vase by case)
Thank you all! Any other pony breeds will need their own post to get caps in flat racing.
Thanks for the update, I could only work off the leaderboards (I know the discipline checker aint always accurate so I only ever use it as a guide).
I think I'd struggle to find evidence of either competing in higher level endurance simply from sheer lack of horses (pony types in particular are really really rare), but I'll keep my eye out on the FB group I'm in in case anything pops up.
Edited their outcross list to all breeds that you listed + Appendix Quarter Horses and Anglo-Arabians, for simplicity of blood percentages. Also listed Australian Stock Horse as a mandatory parent. Thank you for your research!
I have made a note on the MBL to specify that Anglo-Arab outcrosses should be TB x Arab only, however I will not be removing CIAA from the outcrosses accepted by Trakehners on autoreg. Section I CIAA are perfectly acceptable outcrosses to Trakehners as far as I can tell, and Equus does not distinguish between the tiers. I am aware that this leaves a 'loophole' for people to breed WBFSH member blood into Trakehners, as Autoreg does not read grandparent breeds, but considering this is a fictional setting and given the small numbers of CIAA on Equus, most of whom comply to AHA standards as you've pointed out, there is no need to restrict the entire studbook from being accepted in my opinion.
I expect most members with 2nd+ gen CIAA Anglos with WBFSH blood will read the MBL with it's new clarification and realize their horses are not able to realistically produce Trakehners- however if they still choose to breed Trakehners with those horses, the system will not stop them. Likewise, any members who are concerned about the purity of their lines will need to do their research on horses they purchase or breed to.
Thank you all for your research and input.
