THE BEAUTIFUL, VERSATILE AMERICAN SADDLEBRED
ARGUABLY THE MOST BEAUTIFUL HORSE BREED IN HISTORY (AND IN THE OPINION OF MANY, THE MOST BEAUTIFUL ANIMAL EVER CREATED BY GOD), THE SADDLEBRED’S VERSATILITY AND USEFULNESS IS OFTEN OVERLOOKED.
Because the top of the breed is more well known in the show ring, the Saddlebred (unjustly) carries a lable of a breed which can only be trained and ridden by the most professional horsemen.
Truth is, almost all (a rough estimate would rate it at 90%) of these exciting horses are as docile (and more intelligent) as most other breeds. Few breeds are as responsive to training, and trainers who are familiar with Saddlebreds seldomly get along with other breeds. The reason these horses create the image of “wild excitement”, is because they are capable of creating the most exciting image of all animals, when called upon to do so. Yet they are among the most adaptable of all equine breeds.
There is hardly a purpose which the Saddlebred cannot serve, depending upon the way it has been trained. And despite being one of the most beautiful horse breeds ever in existence, the intelligence and docile disposition of this breed makes it almost unique.
These photos will give the reader a cross section of the many purposes which the Saddlebred can adapt to.
