American Saddlebred Today

Welcome to the UPDATING & Saddlebred Today Website!

The American Saddlebred is an extremely intelligent and versatile breed of horse, we can refer to this as Protean (Pro-tee-en) -- Versatile; able to play many kinds of roles.



Besides being bred to be a Gaited Horse, they also excel in Dressage, Cross Country, Show Jumping, Driving, Reining, Roping, Western Pleasure and are used in Therapeutic Riding Programs as well as in Law Enforcement.



If you have not experienced the enjoyment of an American Saddlebred Horse, and you would like to, we hope what you learn here will help to make that a reality.

We were saddened by the news of the passing of Redd Crabtreee, February 19th at 79.  He was an exceptional horseman who was inducted into the World's Championship Horse Show Hall of Fame in 1993 and it was always an experience to watch him show on the Green Shavings.  The American Saddlebred Association has a nice review of his career that you can read here.
