American Saddlebred Classes at the GCHS
At the GCHS, American Saddlebreds are shown western style. They are judged on manners and suitability, having a relaxed but collected gait cadence, along with a calm and responsive disposition. The horses is to appear to be a “pleasure” to ride and very comfortable and smooth. They are shown at a flat walk, jog-trot, and lope. They are expected to stand quietly and back readily. Riders use only one hand on the reins.
Winner of the ASB Country Western Pleasure was Jack Swanson riding Ever Glades’ Hotspur.
Winner of the ASB Western Country Pleasure Championship was Ginny Beth Norton on her Walterway’s Latest News. Carol Jones and Best Bean were reserve.
