It should be the objective of each person, in which ever way he be involved with Saddlebred horses, to promote the well being of Saddlebred in general and to do whatever is required to make provision for retired Saddlebred horses.
As an equestrian sport the Saddlebred is unknown mainly due to the fact that equitation is not an Olympic sport. South Africa initiated an international competition known as The World Cup, initially only between South Africa and the United States of America.
This competition has grown in stature to the extent that in 1996 the aforementioned countries were joined by Canada, Namibia and the United Kingdom.
The annual Saddlebred Society and Affiliates meeting took place on 9-11 August 2016 in Bloemfontein. Please take note of the following urgent changes that will affect all horse owners. View the full newsletter
VERY IMPORTANT to familiarise yourself with the latest Rules and Rule Changes. Make sure that you are well informed about these rules, as well as the Drug Rules, Prohibited Substances, and the prescribed Veterinary Treatment Forms. View the Rule Book
We are proud to announce that the Saddlebred will be represented and exhibited at NAMPO, to be held from 16-19 May 2017 near Bothaville. The exhibition will be situated behind the sheep complex.View Details

Born on Christmas night out of the grey mare, Belle of San Francisco, and sired by Hell of a Nite. Trained by Andre la Conte – his career took him to Europe and the UK. He returned to South Africa with Andre as a seven year old and started competing very successfully locally.
He is a true charmer and to date has always been placed in the top three in a FEI-dressage competition! He has gained a keen fan club – his pleasant disposition, good looks and ease of handling are a tribute to his breed!
