About Golden American Saddlebred HorsesAbout Golden American Saddlebred Horses



Officially the Golden Saddlebred color was infused in thernAmerican Saddlebred Horse Association through a horse by the name of PatrnCleburne, who was foaled in 1864. In the Palomino Horse Breeders of America,rnthe first golden Saddlebred registered was Pot O' Gold, later known as Richardson'srnPot O' Gold. This horse was foaled in 1939 and was bred by S.A. Clift ofrnWaxahachie, TX, and registered with the ASHA as Clift's Pride.rnrn 

rnrnWhat does one look for in a Golden American Saddlebred?rnFirst and foremost, is conformation. A beautifully shaped, well-proportionedrnhead is a must. The ears are small, alert, and placed at the top of the head.rnThe neck is long, and well-arched, with a smooth clean throat latch. The eye isrnbold, bright, and intelligent. Well-sloped shoulders and sharp withers wellrnabove the height of the hips is characteristic. The croup is long and levelrnwith the tail coming out high, and the hind quarters are well muscled to thernhocks. The back is short and strong. The long legs are straight with longrnsloping pasterns that are so necessary for an easy, well cushioned ride. Thernshallow, full-sprung rib cage make the barrel of the Saddlebred more roundedrnthan in other breeds. Height is generally from 15 to 17 hands and weight fromrn1000 to 1200 pounds.rnrn 

rnrnThe complete picture of Golden Saddlebred should be one ofrnrefinement, smoothness and strength. Coloring can vary from cream to copper andrnall shades in between. However, the ideal color is that of the untarnished goldrncoin. Eyes must be brown or dark. White markings on the face and legs arernallowed, but no spots. Mane and tail should be white and purity is desirable.rnrn 


rnrnThe American Saddlebred is an adaptable horse, and easilyrntrainable. For many years they have carried the image of being high-strung,rnfire-breathing show horses, but just as every person is an individual, so isrnevery horse. Some temperaments are suitable for the show ring and some arernmeant strictly for the trail. Each horse, and rider, must find the area mostrnsuitable for them. The ways that Golden Saddlebreds can be used are many, therernare show horses, pleasure horses and parade horses (in the show ring or downrnthe street). They can be used for eventing and choring, all depending on thernindividual horse’srndisposition and conformation.rnrn 

rnrnIn the show ring, Golden Saddlebreds are eligible in all thernclasses in the Saddle Horse Division of the American Horse Shows Associationrnand the Golden American Saddlebred Division of PHBA; five-gaited, three-gaited,rnfine harness, English and Western pleasure, parade, western show horse, driving,rntrail and so on. One can see the possibilities of teaming a horse with arndivision are almost endless.rnrn 

rnrnThe Golden American Saddlebred is registered with thernAmerican Saddlebred Horse Association.
