Saddlebred crazy!
 
Id like to meet some saddlebred owners, so feel free to share some photos of your saddlebreds and tell me about them!

This here is Sammy, my wonderful saddlebred gelding!

Very nice horse it appears. How is he bred?

No Saddlers for me...got QH's now. But I groomed many years, and my father was a trainer.

We owned WC Mimi Genius, Sug Utz up, in the 50's, as well as another ASB.

Love them, just not any right around here.

There are quite a few Saddlebred FB groups, if you want I can tell you how to find them. Wonderful pictures of the old timers too.

Just love the breed. And miss them so much.

What a handsome boy! And doing what Saddlebreds do best! I will post some pictures when I get home from work. I just have some youngsters right now.

Oh yay! More Saddlebred owners! OP, your boy is so thick and stout. Gorgeous! My mare is a skinny, narrow little thing. I really do hope she fills out as she continues to mature. I'm new to Saddlebreds. Anyone have any idea how long it takes for a Saddlebred to really fill out? She's almost 5, and is a petite thing. 16 hh, but has a tiny chest.

One of my all time favourite breeds. I have never owned nor handled a Saddlebred, but I have always adored the way they look and carry themselves. I will definitely be subbing to this thread to see some beauties :).

My friend tells me that Saddlebreds are wonderful, and they are a lot of fun. They also will not respond well to painful training because their presence is created from being "happy" and a pleaser.

Welcome to the forum, Saddlleseatsmart. Always good to see more Saddlebred fanciers. I always wish more would consider the breed. Here is a pic of my favourite boy, Denmark's Monarch, sadly long gone now.

While I love my daughter's Gypsy Horses, if I were younger, I'd still have a Saddlebred in my stable. THE best type of do-it-all, horse.

My giraffe.

He is also kinda narrow. I'm working on plumping him up, but he is running around constantly.

He has been the best horse I've ever owned, and known!!! I trained everything, except walking on a lead. He is pretty much the best horse ever. :p

Well they usually will fill out at 6-7! By now you should be doing lots of long lining to build his muscle and start training him to get ready to be ridden! Good luck, hes very cute(:
