Saddleseat. Probably the most watched
performance class at the local fair. As high
energy as gymkhana, but as disciplined as
dressage. For many 4-H and open level
competitors, riding and showing saddleseat
is a long-away dream. The expensive horse
who requires constant pampering, the
elegant day coats made of silk, and the
confusing equipment has made this style
o of riding impossible for the average equestrian.
In addition. many willing students are
discouraged by the cost of lessons, or by the
lack of trainers at the local level.
Saddleseat. Originated on the plantations of
the Confederate South. Wealthy plantation
exhibited their power by riding tall, elegant
horses which were not only confident in
every step, but were a pleasure to ride.
Although the American Saddlebred is
considered to be the epitome of saddleseat
riding, they are not the only breed who
may be shown under saddleseat equipment.
Today, every imaginable pleasure or light
breed is shown in saddleseat at local fairs,
high school equestrian team, and open shows.
Saddleseat. Has become more popular in
recent years at local shows. Many 4-H and
open shows offer gaited classes as well as

trainers at the local level willing to instruct
gaited, 4-H, untraditional or backyard pleasure
Saddleseat. There is finally a new way to learn
saddleseat. Without any prejudice to breed,
age, ability, location or financial status.
