The American Saddlebred Museum presents the traditions and heritage of the American Saddlebred Horse through the collection, preservation, and display of artifacts, fine art, photography and the written word. For more information visit thier website.

The American Saddlehorse Museum at the Horse Park in Lexington, KY is featuring this year an exhibit of some of its finest jewels, including paintings, sculpture, photographs and memorabilia rarely offered to the public. The exhibit kicked off with an opening party in February and runs through Dec. 31.

Featured are two cases devoted to the famous show-ring battles between CH Imperator and CH Sky Watch. A continually playing DVD contains the rare split-screen footage of the two at the 1983 Kentucky State Fair

One of the oldest paintings in the Museum's collection is highlighted in the exhibit: The oil of noted sire Black Squirrel by an unknown artist is thought to date back to the late 1800's. Several George Ford Morris paintings are prominently displayed throughout the Museum. An interesting attraction is the Riebel oil of Avalon Volcano, Alvin Ruxer's first true Saddlebred show horse.

The Saddlebred mare, Tender Mercies (Jamestown x Desert Amber by CH Sensational Spirit) has her job cut out for her this spring at the Simpsonville, KY Willowbank Farm. She is taking care of two foals, pictured here. (FarPalmer photos) No, they are not twins!

The first colt,  Zagnut by Undulata's Nutcraker (CH Caramac x Christmas In New York by The New York Times), was foaled April 2. When he was born his dam, With Memories (The Blythe Spirit x Super Socialite by Super Supreme) had no milk, he was very overdue and was maladjusted. He spent a day and a half at Rood & Riddle in Lexington, KY and came home bright eyed & bushy tailed -- but with no mama. To make matters worse, his nurse mare wouldn't adopt him because he smelled like the clinic, not a baby horse. While the Willowbank staff persevered and improvised, another mare, Tender Mercies (Jamestown x Desert Amber by CH Sensational Spirit), foaled a gorgeous colt on April 7.

Amazingly, Mercies adopted Zagnut to go along with her own Ziggy Pop by Con Heir (Supreme Heir x Whisperwind’s Irish Rose by CH Irish American). She

loves them both and woe to any other mare who questions this!

Mercy deserves an extra star in her crown for taking care of “the Twinkies!”

Willowbank stands six premier Saddlebred stallions, Con Heir, Undulata’s Nutcracker, Belle Reve’s Voodoo Magic, Finally Attached. Attache’s Thunderbolt, CF I’m A Prowlin’ and the Hackney stallion Forewood Commander.

Teater Saddlebred Enterprises, owners of the famed Tattersalls Sales, celebrates its 20th anniversary this year with Saddlebred sales to be held July 12-14 and October 26-28.

The nation's oldest light horse market, Tattersalls was founded in 1892 eight blocks from the center of Lexington and adjacent to the Red Mile Trotting Track that was established in 1875. The auction business was successful with various owners and management teams, as there was a great need for saddle and carriage horses.
In 1933, then famous horseman Bob Moreland consigned American Born to Tattersalls. The stallion commanded a final bid of $12,000.00 and, according to historian Susanne, this was the highest price that had ever been paid for an American Saddlebred.
In the 1950's, the facility was purchased by the well-

 

known Dodge Stables and Castleton Farm owner Frederick Van Lennep and other Lexington horsemen. One notable sale occurred in 1966,

with the dispersal of Senator T.N. Wood's Brynfan Tyddyn Stables. The stallion Indiana Peavine and his daughter, the then current junior five-gaited World's Champion Lily Merrill, each sold for $45,000.00

In 1986, Teater Saddlebred Enterprises, Inc. was formed to manage Saddlebred auctions. TSE has hosted several record-breaking sales, the most notable involving horses consigned by the famous Saddlebred nursery Callaway Hills Stable, Jefferson City, MO. In 1997, a two year old five-gaited gelding and Callaway Hills' consignment brought $360,000.00 in a record single session that averaged $31,012.00.
In 2000, the Tattersalls and Red Mile facilities were sold to five Standardbred breeders dedicated to the revitalization of the race track and sales pavilion. Major renovation will be ongoing.

The American Saddlebred Horse Association of Australia Inc (ASHA of A) Studbook was established in 1977 with the first purebred horses imported from the USA. It includes all other purebred imports to Australia since that time.

In 1996, the ASHA (USA), keepers of the founding American Registry Studbook, initiated compulsory blood-typing for purebred horses. ASHA of Australia complied with this deadline for Australian-bred purebred horses registered with them by adopting the international standard.

Today in Australia, with over 900 horses currently registered from all States of Australia, the ASHA of A Inc stands alone in protection of the purity of the breed and connection to the founding USA source, setting the industry benchmark for discerning breeders, buyers and enthusiasts of saddlebreds.

 


900 registered Saddlebreds thriving ‘down under’

The ASHA of Australia is staffed by voluntary workers
who encourage and support other owners in all disciplines, toward the uncomplicated joy of owning and sharing personal experiences of the American Saddlebred, whether purebred or partbred.

In this spirit, ASHA of Australia now introduces the Appendix Australian Registry. Applications to this category will be considered for any horse issued with a Purebred American Saddlebred registration certificate by another legally registered association or society showing pedigree derived from the ASHAA (A) Studbook.

DNA testing is compulsory. For successful applications, if in time a chain of DNA can be established by exclusion to two (A) Studbook parents, upgrade to the Studbook may be applied for. For full details contact the Secretary of ASHA of Australia.

The crowd at Freedom Hall reacted with true admiration and respect Aug. 26th when trainer/rider Smith Lilly of Princeton, WV spoke to the crowd after winning the Five-Gaited World’s Grand Championship with the talented He’s The Man and gave credit to, among others, the horse’s former trainer, George Knight. Lilly had been working the horse only since April.

“Giving credit to the man who made the horse was such a solid thing to do,” commented a Saddlebred trainer after the show. “It takes a great rider to show a great horse and Smith did a fabulous job. But it takes a world-class person to give credit where credit is due. What he did was world class.” The pair won the Five-Gaited Gelding Stake earlier in the week.

He’s The Man is by CH Man On The Town (CH Yorktown) and out of Perfect (BHF) by Supreme Sultan.

Regional championship shows, so popular in many breeds, finally are being created in the saddlebred industry, following action by the American Saddle Horse Association. Also, a Regional High Score Awards program is expected to begin for the 2007 competition year.

Designated shows include: PA National, Harrisburg, PA, AZ Saddlebred Futurity, CA Saddle Horse Futurity, Northwest Saddlebred Assn. Fall Classic, Salem, OR, WI Futurity, St. Louis National Charity Horse Show, KY Fall Classic, NC State Fair, and Southeastern Charity Horse Show, Conyers, GA.

Alan F. Balch, executive secretary of ASHA, commented:

“First and foremost, competitions were encouraged to apply for this designation, and in some regions, we had more than one very worthy show to consider. Where choices had to be made, the Executive Committee took into account the recommendations of the leadership of the Charter Club Council, but also looked independently at such criteria as time for management to prepare and the geography of the region, because a central location where all exhibitors can attend most conveniently was another important factor. In the future, the Executive Committee felt that some shows might rotate with this designation, but to give the program the best chance to get a good start, the designation should be made for two years.”

Willowbank: premier ASB stallion station

Willowbank Farm in Shelbyville, KY currently stands eight premier American Saddlebred stallions and a Hackney Horse stallion.

Undulata's Nutcracker (CH Caramac x Christmas In New York ERB): a record-breaking stallion, topping the All American Auction as a three-year-old, a feat he repeated for two more years. He is a truly gifted individual, possessing the most desirable qualities of a breeding stallion; impeccable pedigree, dynamic presence and upright motion that he is passing on to his offspring.

Callaway's Main Man(CH Caramac x Main Ruby) hails from a family of legendary horses. WC Caramac is the sire of 45 world titleholders including WGC Select Stock, and My Chanel, Designed, Callaway's Lil Abner, Callaway's Arbitrator and Caraway among others.

I’m A Prowlin (CH Night Prowler x Courtly Discovery): With an ancestry that includes a World's Champion sire and a five-time Word's Champion maternal grandsire, this black stallion boasts a remarkable bloodline and was successful in the fine harness division. He has already sired two futurity champions, Prowlin's First Lady and Juris Doctor and performance horses such as the three-gaited Iced Tea.

Finally Attached (Attache x Camilla Fox) is the youngest son of WC Attache, a WC 5-Gaited horse and the sire of many show ring and breeding horses. He is a full brother to the multi-World's Champion CH Unattached and Moet. His first foal crops, from a diversified group of mares, are outstanding and include the 2002 RWC Stonecutter and 2004 RWC Shame On You.

Ocean’s Roar (Local Hero x Whirlwind’s Sounf Of Music) is a regal, long-legged horse with extreme length of neck and stands 17 hands. His pedigree contains the names of many important show horses. His dam was a half sister to multi-WC Blue Chipper and his third dam, the grand WC five-gaited show mare Stonewall's Sound Of Music was a half sister to WC Set The Style.

Samur is the only son of the great breeding stallion Roseridge Heir, full brother to WC The Rose Lady and he has six Hall of Fame Broodmares in his pedigree on his dam's side.

Seaforth's Billion Heir (Supreme Heir x CH Rejoice): Truly a product of his heritage, his sire Supreme Heir was the leading sire of show horses all time. His dam hails from the most successful line in Saddlebred history. Rejoice is a multi-World's Champion, surely one of the greatest show mares of all time.

Thundergun (Attache’s Thunderbolt x Sweetanticipation V) is a young son of the successful breeding stallion Attache's Thunderbolt who has sired many WCs and stakes winners. He is a full brother to the exciting five-gaited Sweepstakes champion Thunder Crackin'. His dam was by six-time WC Captive Spirit and sire of multiple WCs and stakes winners. This handsome, powerful moving young horse reflects his ancestry of great show horses.
