Wow, they are a very trim and fit breed arent they? I am just curious what a fine saddlebred would cost?

It all depends on what you want. :) There are nice Saddlebreds to fit almost any budget. If you are looking for the next Louisville Winner, you could be looking at spending over $20,000. But if you are looking for a beautiful anything horse, that may or may not be cut out for the show ring, you can find them anywhere from $800-$8000.

I am huge supporter of Saddlebred Rescue Inc., located in Blairstown, NJ. Their horses' fees are usually under $1000, and with them, you can find anything from unbroke broodmares, to (usually) lesson horses. They often come from the Amish, so many are broke to ride and drive, they are thoroughly evaluated, and represented honestly.

You can check out their horses here: Saddlebred Rescue Angel Network

Here's my friend Regina's saddlebred. I've ridden her a couple times (she's like a DREAM, hard to get to canter though).

As you can see I love taking pics of her

I have ridden one saddlebred so far. She was a "rescue" who's breeder/owner tried to force her to do saddleseat for almost 12 years, before giving up on her, and throwing her out in pasture, then finally a couple years later trying to sell her. Her name is Annabelle's Dream if I remember correctly, and she was very scared when I rode her, as she wasn't sure if I was gonna get after her and make her gait or not. Personally I've never really had a huge urge to go show a gaited saddlebred, but I would like at least once to get on a good saddleseat saddlebred, and see what its like, and I like trying everything at least once, and obviously if I like the style of riding, doing it again. Unfortunately I don't actually know anyone who owns a Saddlebred in San Diego CA that I could ride lol. They def. are flashy though, and I do like flashy horses.

This is Jackpot. He isn't mine, but he I still love him to death. Sweetest horse ever. I'm not sure how old he is, I think somewhere around three or four.

Scripps Mirimar Ranch, aka Michele MacFarlane, is in San Diego. She has the most exquisite Pintos in the World. They are exibited in large parades across the country, and have even performed in the Opening Ceremonies at the Olympics. She is one of the TOP Saddlebred Trainers in the world. Saddlebred Trainers are usually pretty open and like to show off just as much as the horses do, so I would say give them a call and see if you can set up a tour to check 'em out. What is the worst that could happen, they say no.
