Such lovely eye candy! I've never really been one for gaited breeds, but man I can appreciate how pretty they are~
<---- Hi :) Well actually Saddlebreds are kind of special.. very few of them have the inclination to have extra gaits.. Those are the ones that can be "taught" to slow gait and rack.. but only few these days can be 5 gaited.. Majority are "regular" 3 gaited horses.. Mine is anyways :)
I'm not a ASB owner but I can really appreciate them. I love that unlike some other breeds that are hard to tell apart, you always know when a horse is ASB because they all seem to have that big, regal, streamline appearance and nearly roman nose. I absolutely love them.
I've just joined the Saddlebred owners her. My Aunt, who was like a mother to me, passed and left me her horses. She never told me the breed of her mare or her gelding Sarge. I just got the horses home last night and with them came a letter explaining everything about them.
Sugar is a Saddlebred mare! No wonder my Aunt always told me I rode her wrong, and I've always wondered why she didn't trot.
