Saddlebred Rescue *Check Out the Newsletter and New Horses!*

Everyone who is looking for a good horse, should look through the Horses at Saddlebred Rescue. Many are broke to ride, and a lot are broke to drive also.

There are so many that I would take home in a heartbeat, if we had an extra stall. Hopefully, sometime this year we will be able to take on a foster or two and maybe even adopt.

SADDLE HORSES with Videos

Slim Jim – Chestnut gelding, around 15.2 and 18ish y/o. He’s a game fellow who starts off a little nervous but tries hard and does 3 gaits. Puts in 110% and needs some pitchfork princesses to love him.

Jerry Seinfeld 12.10.07 - He is about 16 hands no white whats so ever and is around 15ish years old. Very easy to do all the ground stuff with and was easy to tack. Jessie had no problems getting on and he stood still at the mounting block, but he did trot off, no buck just go forward. This horse is quite the sport and he did do all three gaits. Seinfeld knew what a canter cue was and he did canter really well only playing around a little bit. I do not think this horse is a beginner horse as he does have a bigger motor. I think he would make a good practice horse, or a horse for better riders.

The rider doesn't have an indoor arena which is the only reason she wasn't loaded on the trailer.

Foal
Wow I really love Ninja girl and Nite Life where is this rescue located at? I might have missed it and what are there adoption fees usually around? I currently have a PMU mare we adopted 5 years ago and we love her and I'd love to adopt another horse.

A lot of the horses are located in NJ. Relatively close if you live in PA.

Adoption fees vary depending on how much has been put into them from the rescue. You would have to talk to the Director, Pat(magic, on the forums). You can send her a PM through the forums, or email her. On average, they are considerably less than $1000.

Here is Pat's Email. patjohnsonmagic@embarqmail.com

You have to fill out the adoption application and go through the process, but it goes relatively quick. Pat is awesome. These ladies do not mess around.

The adoption form.

A new message from the Trainer, Anne, on Ninja Girl, "Ninja Girl asked me to bump her up, she is afraid everyone will forget her. She continues to work well and is getting better all the time. She is hoping if she is good enough and cute enough and stands at the gate whenever a person approaches, someone will give her her forever home. She certainly deserves it."

If you check out her topic on the forums(see link above her picture), you can see what people who have worked with her say about her.

And isn't Nite Life a CUTIE! I think she is absolutely adorable! The link to her video is in the first post.

Ms. Toby has an Identity!!!!! Her registered name is "Truly's Flight Time" and she is a 1997 mare.

Toby is very kind,smart and sensible but is energetic. She doesn't buck, rear, spin or spook, nothing ugly just wants to go. Not for a beginner or young squirrel, but could be very good for those moving up to a more advanced level. I think in her dreams she is the show/pleasure partner of a petite lady or older teen.

I've been looking at your site quite a few times recently. My fiance and I were thinking about getting a 3rd horse that a. Family members could ride when they visit, and b. That we could lease to people at our barn with the hopes of the horse showing and stuff. I would like to rescue a horse, but not sure if a saddlebred would be good. Most of the people here ride western, but a few do ride english.
Is there a way I could come check the horses out? I live in sussex county, NJ.

You will have to contact Pat Johnson, but yes, I would dare say you would definitely be allowed to come check them out. The NJ barn is in Blairstown.

Pat's phone number is in this link right here.

What's with Slinky's back?

That is a condition called Lordosis. You see it most commonly in Saddlebreds and some other longer backed breeds. It doesn't happen "All of a Sudden". Like your saddlebred's back is not just going to start dropping at eight years of age. It happens at a usually young age and you can often tell on foals if they are going to be afflicted. It is part breeding, part environment(we believe). We believe it to be a genetic response to a deficiency in development and growth. The two of ours with severe lordosis supports our theory. Certian bloodlines are more prone to this than others. It is not something bred for as it is a major conformation fault.

If you look at some of the posts towards the bottom of the first page of Slinky's topic, you will see some responses on it from other SBR supporters.

It doesn't affect thier performance ability at all. There are in fact many extremely lowbacked horses with champion titles. One of ours was in the ribbons in a 20 horse class at the World Championships a few years ago. Unless you are required to take the saddle off in the class(and there are some that require it), then you would be safe.

We have two right now who are retired. One was a show horse and the other a lesson horse. I can pm you a picture of both of them. On one of ours, he is an orphan. His mother was in terrible condition and died giving birth to him, and he really didn't get a lot from his mother. The other was injured so badly as a foal(thorn in the eye) that his immune system shut down. Thanks to experimental medicine, he was saved.

All you really need is a nice thick pad for riding, and don't slam into his back, and you would be fine.

Slinky looks like a REALLY comfortable ride.

Sampson, the Beligian, is also lowbacked. His is probably from age and it isn't too awfully bad, though it is noticeable in one of the pictures on his topic

Thank you for noticing that!

Great post we have a sway TB we rescued and people are stunned when I go and win a jumping class. A low back dosn't affect preformance one bit and I think it makes for a more comfie ride. Alot of people never even noticed till I removed my saddle after the classes were over. Only problem I found was it took awhile to find the perfect saddle for him but with the right pad that's not really a big issue.
