    Maybe so, but not all Morgans are gaited.
    Just curious how many people on here have actually ridden saddleseat and if so how long have you and what breeds have you ridden saddleseat?

    I rode Saddleseat for ten years. I've showed Saddlebreds and Arabians and ridden Morgans and Hackneys. I loved Saddleseat (still do), but I still don't think enough people do it for a subsection to be necessary. If you make a subsection for every discipline, then what will be left for the main English Riding section?

    I have ridden saddleseat for 27 years. I have ridden Saddlebreds, Arabs, and Morgans. I prefer Morgans...I think Morgans are awesome.

    I like Saddlebreds the best. Hackneys are really fun, but I wouldn't want to ride one regularly. The only Arabs I've ridden have been either school horses or thousand-year-old retired show horses, so I can't give a good opinion on them. EVERY single Morgan I've met was a complete B**** or a psycho, so they are definitely not my favorite.

    Another thing... Is it just me, or are 90% of Morgans mares? I know they must exist, but I don't think I've ever heard of anyone owning or riding a Morgan stallion or gelding, haha.

    Well in my experience the Saddlebreds were the nut cases. There are a ton of Morgan Geldings in Upstate NY. There are Morgan Stallions that get shown as well. The mares are in the minority to the geldings. I would take a good Morgan mare anyday over any gelding.
    I think some people tend to be better with mares then others. Just as some breeds are better for some people then others.

    I have definitely known some crazy Saddlebreds. My first horse (a Saddlebred) was absolutely CRAZY. I mean... he would buck you off and spin around and try to trample you like a bull. But the majority of Saddlebreds I know are really sweet and good-natured.

    I agree that some people are better with mares than others. I don't think I'm better with one or the other, though. I've had two horses I didn't get along with - a mare and a gelding, and three horses I have gotten along with - two geldings and one mare. I've gotten along with the last mare the most, by far.

    One cannot say that all of one breed is bad,lol. I prefer my Morgans they tend to have a certain attitude that I like. I have ridden numerous horses. But I have only owned 5 show horses. Three of them were Morgans, 1 ASB and one QH. I have only ever had one show horse at a time. Out of the 5 horses 3 were geldings and two were mares.
    I really liked my mares better then my geldings. My mares had better manners then the gledings.
    I have ridden about 50 horses since I started riding till now. I have shown lesson horses when I was younger and then I starting showing other people's horses. By riding so many different horses I learned alot about horses and more about myself over the years. I did not start showing my own horses until 1989-present.
    It can be very difficult to find a horse that is the "perfect fit" which I did find her in 2000, and I still have her today at age 17. I do not know if I will ever find another "perfect fit" horse again.
    BTW my ASB was an awesome carriage driving horse but a not so great riding horse.

    I can see where Morgan people would see Saddlebreds as nuts and vice versa. They are two different types of "hot". Saddlebred people are used to this type, while morgans are of another type. I am -a Saddlebred girl and don't like Arab-hot. I just don't know it and we don't mesh. I don't like TB-hot. I ride the ultimate TB product. The raw form is a little too hot for me.

    I have a little Morgan mare friend. She is a GAME sister! Sweet as can be, but snorty, flighty, and as game as any Saddlebred I have met! I'd almost call her nuts, but she just has a motor.

    I think some people outside of saddleseat, don't understand why saddleseat is so fun for us. Its a total adrenaline rush for me. My sassy little morgan mare, loves saddleseat and also likes huntseat. Strange combination, I know. She can go from hot to calm in a short time.
