Spotted Saddle Horse

 
Spotted Saddle horse were developed by crossing Spanish American type spotted ponies, with other established  gaited breeds, mainly Tennessee Walking Horses, to produced a natural smooth gaited, colorful horse that came to be known as the Spotted Saddle Horse. However, due to the predominant influence of the Tennessee Walking Horse in the breed, the Spotted Saddle Horse more closely resembles a heavier T.W.H. than any other breed. Some other breeeds introduced include the Standardbreds, Mustangs, Missouri Fox Trotters, Peruvian Paso,  Paso Finos  and Racking Horses.  The Spotted Saddle Horse is a horse which is spotted, naturally gaited and possessing strength and stamina.

There are several breed registries, 
 
  • The Spotted Saddle Horse Breeders And Exhibitors Association (Known as SSHBEA) which is an organization established in 1985 to promote the Spotted Saddle Horse. To accomplish this, SSHBEA has instituted a program for affiliating horse shows, licensing Judges, and approving Designated Qualified Persons, and has established official rules for registering and showing of the Spotted Saddle Horse.
  • The National Spotted Saddle Horse Association was formed in 1979, NSSHA  is dedicated to establishing a uniform breed saddle horse that is naturally gaited and performs without the use of punishing training aids or substances. 
  • The American Spotted Horse Association established in 1999. Registry based on promoting the sound, gaited western style Spotted Horse.

These registries still allow animals to be registered that exhibit the spotted coat pattern and the smooth intermediate gait.  With the recent (Jan. 1, 1999) closing of half of the SSHBEA books, it is now a requirement that at least one (1) parent registered to register offspring.

To qualify for Spotted Saddle Horse registration, coat patterns must show behind the head and above the hocks (exclusive of facial markings). Coat colors include all those found in the equine world. Typical markings run from the clean, circular tobiano pattern to the irregular, rather splashy overo design. Less common are the roan-like sabino markings and the tovero pattern combining both traits of the overo and tobiano.
