    I'm actually learning a lot by reading it. I am a TX gal. I pull my horse from a pasture and hop on. This whole time I was under the impression these horses are forced to carry their heads high and step high. Come to find out they are born this way and tend to enjoy showing off?

    I still disagree with some of the training methods/tools that I am reading about. :\ Although you find that with any discipline...
    I bet it's fun to ride a Saddlebred horse. I've always thought horses enjoyed running free in an open pasture, and not being in a stable.

    It's hard to picture a well mannered/disciplined Saddlebred running free with a few mustangs.

    I'd like to look into their history more. I know all horses originated from somewhere. I wonder how they bred them to step so high and carry their heads that way...

    Once I reclaim my computer from my dad, who is watching a horse show webcast at the moment, I will post a few videos for you. :)

    Saddlebreds can be magnificent trail horses with amazing stamina and spirit.

    Sounds good! I'm interested in seeing them in their natural environment or out to pasture and not in show. I'd like to see the difference in both.

    I've seen weighted boots to train them to raise them high, without pain or special shoes. That is how they did it at the one stables I boraded at many long years ago.

    I know nothing of saddlebreds,but it looks like fun!
    They remind me a bit of Tuigpaarden (Dutch Harness Horses,you guys say),I like them. Tuigpaarden aren't shown under saddle (most of the time) but most of the horses also ride under saddle :)

    Here in America, we cross the Dutch Harness Horse to the Arabians to get a HOT HOT HOT, high trotting, flashy saddleseat riding horse. Not a horse for everyone but WOW they are fun to watch.

    Just putting this out there. I have an Arabian/American Saddlebred gelding and he was a former show horse in WP,EP, Arab classes, Saddlebred classes and driving classes all before I purchased him. I don't show him now but I enjoy watching saddleseat at local competions as well as other classes. He now has shown me how versatile a horse he really is. He is naturally gaited with a very comfortable ride and I couldn't find a better horse if I tried. He may not be the best at everything but he sure gives 110%. With myself as owner he trail rides, jumps small jumps, can western game, drives in a two person cart, and I just started team penning with him this past Saturday and he was awesome. This may be off topic but I wanted to say how a saddleseat horse can do other things too. I think he enjoys the variety as he is extremely intelligent. I love the Arab/Saddlebred cross.
