Celebrating the VERSAtility of the American Saddlebred

Welcome to VERSA: promoting the versatility of the American Saddlebred, the horse America made. First developed in the 1700s in the USA, the American Saddlebred rose to popularity in the 1800s due to its brave nature and comfortability. The Saddlebred has a tremendous capacity for collection, brilliance, and presence. With an impeccable temperament, intelligence, endurance, and willingness to learn, the Saddlebred is an ideal riding horse. VERSA aims to promote the versatility of this beautiful breed across all the disciplines, including dressage, hunt seat, eventing, jumping, ranch, carriage driving, and more. Do you ride your Saddlebred in any of these disciplines? We would be honored to have you be part of VERSA!
