Flashy dudes. I love the backyard ones. Don't normally like the show look but is cool once in a while.

I've always wanted an American Saddlebred.

Unfortunatly, that is only because I like the outfits and saddles, not a big fan of their gaits.

But gawsh, are they gorgeous or what?

^^ Yeah, I'd hate to expect a gait and get a trot! Agg.

Saddlebreds are not gaited horses unlike tennessee walkers and paso finos who are born naturally gaited. The saddlebred is not naturally gaited, it must be taught to pace or rack, therefor it is not a gaited breed. They trot. I don't like it when people call them gaited. -.-

^^ I've always heard they are gaited so I automatically asumed that the book-writers were right.

Well I've bred and shown and worked with them all my life and I can assure you they aren't naturally born gaited. They must be trained to rack.

That is sad :(
How are they trained? Hobbles?

Na. It just takes a lot of controlling their gait so they don't break into a trot. They do two gaits, the slow gait and the rack. The rack is basically a quickened version of the slow gait. It usually takes a few weeks to train. No hobbles. ;)
