Saddlebred Farms - HSC Overview
Saddlebred Farms are integral to the existence of this breed of horse, and as such are highly welcome on HSC. Any owner wants everyone to know what their farm offers you, whether it is breeding stock, colts, training for pleasure or for the show ring, teaching (and on what level). They want you to know where they are and all about whatever they offer the public.

It is hard to say when Saddlebred farms first began, but this event actually occurred prior to the Saddle Horse being officially recognized as a breed. Since Colonial times the saddle horse as a type was valued and since these horses at that time were vital to the work and well-being of humans, there also existed people who were involved in breeding and raising good saddle horses; there was certainly land available to do so. In time Saddlebreds romping, chomping in pastures and stables swept not only back roads but also main thoroughfares.
Since the inception of the breed, there have been many historic Saddlebred farms producing individual horses who helped both form and change the breed for the better, whose contributions have been outstanding. It is impossible to list them all here, but surely at a minimum, we should mention Kalarama Farm, Blythewood, Dodge Stables and Castleton Farm, and Ruxer Farms. Well, the full list would be huge and the history overwhelming. The large farms are the repository of an enthusiasm held by many thousands of individual owners and breeders, and their love of this breed as well as what the horses themselves have accomplished in the record books and the ongoing gifts with which they grace people's lives.
ASB farms are now located all across the nation, and large or small are dedicated to producing the finest bloodstock and performers, concentrating on the breeding and development of horses to improve both the process and result. Besides being key to a sport that generates large amounts of money annually, the four-legged stars are the focal point of a pastoral environment that makes people honestly want to spend their lives on the farm!
Many allow visitors, but by appointment only. You can get a listing of ASB farms in your home state by checking out the stable/farm/ranch section of the website.
