Question national show horse training?

Hi all, if you have heard of the national show horse breed it is an arabian saddlebred cross. So I suppose they are gaited, now this may be a silly question but, when breaking a gaited horse, do you have to teach them differently? If you have to teach them the different gaits and it isn't "natural" then couldn't you just NOT teach it? I guess I am just confuessed on the breed! Thanks :)

I never knew them to be gaited. They're a trotting breed.

They can be taught to rack and slow gait.

Actually very hard to teach if you don't know in the first place. Gaited horses are trained differnetly. But I think you should implore an actual trainer- If your seeking advice.

I never knew a NSH to be gaited either. Many Saddlebreds aren't.

I own NSH. Theyre very level headed. Long legs make them great for saddleseat or just about everything(jumping, dressage, WP, eventing ect) Not alot of health issue-that I know of at least. I enjoy the breed b/c they have the flare of an Arab but the mind of a saddlebred. They can be double registry too.
And they're smart- that's what I look for in horses!

If your looking to buy- IMO- look for a NSH w/ 50% or more saddlebred blood.

That way you have a better chance of not getting a crazy!

Agree with natisha. Arabs and saddlebreds are equally likely to be "crazy".

Hhherrm.......
I own an arab too.
They are a breed of hot characteristics.
But generally not the NSH b/c of the mixed lines.

Arabs and saddlebreds often have the same type of "mindset", but one isn't crazier than the other. They both can have amazing motion and do very well in saddleseat. No, they're aren't gaited - at least, none that I've ever seen in the Arabian show circuit. They aren't limited strictly to saddleseat and can do any discipline just like any other breed. They tend to favor a couple of disciplines over the others, also just like any breed does. You don't have to teach them any differently than you would any other individual horse in the discipline it is best suited. Not sure if that answered any of your questions. They're not an alien breed. Just like having an arab or a saddlebred. Yes, they'll move differently than a draft or a stock type horse, but they're very intelligent and are loyal horses.

As a rule neither Arabians nor Saddlebreds are "crazy." Both, however, are "responsive."

Sadly, however, some Arabians and Saddlebreds are crazy because humans bred horses with lousy temperments to get some other characteristic. Or maybe were so ignorant as to think "poor temperment" equaled "spirit" or "elan" or some other concept.

If you breed an Arab with a poor temperment to a Saddlebred with a poor temperment what do you think you will get?????

In horses breeding counts. That means that papers count. With papers you can follow a horse backwards and get an idea of what the line they came from is about. If you're thinking about breeding this is crucial. If you're buying a pleasure gelding it might be less so, but should put a smart buyer on their guard if they find every male in the line is a nut ball and the one in front of them is real laid back. Maybe it's a "breeding failure" and maybe it's well trained and maybe it's "better things for better living...through chemistry."
