More About American Saddlebred Horses

What we want in a good Saddlebred:

Some people think that Saddlebreds are crazy because they are such amazing show horses...often referred to as the "Peacocks of the show ring".

Baxter here says, "Phooey on that!"

The Saddlebreds motion must be natural. You cannot make a horse pick his legs up if it does not already come naturally to him. "Look Ma - No shoes!"

A hinged neck is essential for a horse to be able to set his head in the right spot. One of these horses has a great hinged neck and the other one is a bit too straight. Can you tell which one I am talking about?

Great ears are a plus. These are called "hooked ears".

...and lastly are just the details. Icing on the cake, so to say! If the good horse just happens to have the Hair Gene and a unique color...well then now you have a real head turner!..but all Saddlebred people know that "Pretty is as pretty DOES!"

Hi Julie,

I used to board my horse at a former saddlebred farm and some of the horses were still there. They were very spirited but a cinch to handle. One day the owner (a pot bellied middle aged guy) let two dressage trainers on his saddlebreds. They totally bombed, the horses were just barely under control. A little dose of humble pie. They are beautiful and I love the hooked ears.

Love this lesson about horses...I'm gonna take a stab at the hinged neck thing. Is it the horse on the left? His neck looks more raise upward...well, I just like the way it looks better. The last horse is amazing...what coloring! Love your header on your blog, btw! :-) Susan

I'm guessing the one on the left too. They're all so beautiful.
