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.
