Saddlebred Gelding

Item #157905

The foundation sire for the saddlebred was foaled in 1839, and in 1891, saddlebreds became the first horse breed association in the United States. However, the rich history of these animals reaches much further back. American horses, those bred in the United States, were foundational to saddlebreds, and their story reads like a history book. Paul Revere rode a Narraganset Pacer on his historic ride, and the breed contributed significantly to the saddlebred. American horses were ridden during the Revolutionary War, they explored the frontier with Daniel Boone and others, and they were very popular among cavalry units in the Mexican War. The Civil War saw the saddlebred’s stock climb even higher, with notable generals like Robert E. Lee, Ulysses S. Grant, Thomas Jackson, and William T. Sherman all riding them. Such a patchwork history shows the usefulness and enduring qualities of the saddlebred. It is every bit is comfortable in a high-stakes horse show as it is on the trail.
