    Question

    I think I'm in love. Saddlebreds are gorgeous! Wow I nevr really got into them but they are really pretty. They seem so tall and proud. I have one question do Saddlebreds get very tall? I saw one next to me getting ready for a show and it seem to be a GIANT.

    thats why when training you try to stay away from tough bits and try to use friendly little snaffle bits. And of course most of the speed changing should also come from your seat, not just your reins. I mainly use the reins to set the head, I use my seat and legs for speed control. ;)

    I work with a mare, Greta, who is 16.3hh. They usually go from 15.2-17. I mean, theyre usually in the 16 hands range.

    HI LovesTheSaddlebreds! Thanks for contributing! :) I agree with you on the whole gaited thing. That bugs me greatly. Our horses have the natural ability to be able to LEARN the gaits. There are a very rare few who like to amble more than anything, and there are some that once you teach them to rack that is all they want to do. A horse that is chosen to learn the extra gaits are chosen on a long list of qualities that he must possess before the time is put in to train them. Looks and how they move play a big role. Five gaited Saddlebreds generally lack the refinement of a three gaited or park Saddlebred. And while the Three Gaited division has that gaited word in there, it only means that the horse will only perform at the Walk Trot and Canter. Five Gaited horses are the epitome of versatile.

    As for size, there are ASB Ponies, but they are not too common. There are areas of the United States that promote the smaller Saddlebreds.

    I have been at the Lexington Jr League Saddlebred Show ALL week long, every session, and I must reiterate: I freaking love the American Saddlebred. They are such an amazing breed. They are gorgeous, exuberant, exciting, great movers, inspiring, and I NEVER get tired of watching them. I literally could watch them all day every day and then go home and play with my own. I actually did this this week. They are such an addicting animal. They have a quality, a presence, and an image that is solely their own.

    Here are proofs from the Lexington Jr. League Show. It was an AMAZING week. The competition was strong and promising.: Howard Schatzberg Photography - Proofs

    And to keep the thread going, here are a few more of mine:

    He is most definitely NOT a good example of the breed image wise, but he has that great Saddlebred Temperament. That is the only thing he has going for him. But that is okay with me.

    Even the ugly ones need love too.

    He's not ugly, he's adorable! If you want to see a ugly horse I can show you one.

    Oh I have seen plenty of ugly ones. Danny is just not that pretty. He is quite possibly the ugliest one on the farm. Can't hold a flame to his brother. But nevertheless, he has one of the BEST temperaments you could ever ask for in a horse.

    The ones that aren't the prettiest are almost always the best. Pretty is as pretty does.
