I love horses! My friend has one but she is a real dark brown american saddlebred. I am not allowed to ride her because she is a wild horse.

    How can a saddlebred be a wild horse if some one owns it, or is it just not trained? I happened to have a saddlebred-quarter horse last year and he is amazing but do you know if there would be a difference in the way he walks? hope you reply!

    I am not sure about that question but I have to tell you I totally agree how is a horse wild if some one owns it? - alex ponke

    The American Saddlebred IS 'American made' and not Canadian. The slowgait and rack are a precise 1-2-3-4 gait and the pairs of feet do NOT move 'almost together' but separately - anything else would be penalized. The feet are not unnaturally long but are limited by rules. Pads are added for a few ounces of weight and to spread the pressure of the feet hitting the ground. Whoever wrote this article has NO knowledge of the breed. The girl who said her horse was 'wild' is young and only meant the horse had not been trained yet. No big deal.

These horses are so fun to ride and watch in the show ring! The way they pick up their feet so high is amazing!
