I do! Since 1992. Love SA Saddlebreds. They are more old fashioned looking and aren't plagued with the issues US Saddlebreds seem to have.

Well, my mom does! I like them... but I have found that they can be VERRYY hot! My old NHS (arab/saddlebred) was totally... CRAZY. (haha, he was... and is), but my moms old full saddlebred was awesome, TOTALLY sweet! I sat on him when I was just 1 week old! and he even let me walk UNDER him! haha! My mom has so many stories, like once they were on a trail ride and my mom saw a lady who had somehow gotten attacked by a hive of bees and was allergic to them, so my mom released her saddlebred... and he ran back home! (dont worry, she knew he would!!!)

so, it really depends on the saddlebred :)

Big Saddlebred Fan here!

Not a big fan of SA Saddlebreds, to be honest. They are still "too new" for me. I don't know 'em yet. Nothing against them though.There are a lot that are right up there with the best! I have met several extremely nice Asb Folks from SA, too. You all have wicked cool accents.

There's a saddlebred at my barn, she has beautiful coloring.
I don't ride saddleseat, but they seem like an ideal horse for that. Sometimes, though, I've heard they can be very hot. But other than that...cute horses!

hi

yes saddlebreds can be extremely hot but each horse is different.you get very hot saddlebreds but some saddlebreds are very easy to ride and calm it all depends on the horses personality and how it was trained.but lots of saddlebreds are excellent childrens horses.

And you have to keep in mind that a lot of them are meant to look excited and have a lot of "snort!".

They are definitely a breed you have to learn to ride. A lot of them have such active and alert personalities, that you really have to keep them entertained in one way or another before they start getting creative.
