Few horses are as well founded in American History as the Saddlebred. Mentioned in official government correspondence in 1776, it was a Saddlebred that carried Paul Revere on his midnight ride. It's storied history continued during the Civil War, as notable generals had Saddlebred mounts: Lee-Traveller; Grant-Cincinnati; Sherman - Lexington; Stonewall Jackson - Little Sorrel. Developed by plantation owners in Kentucky, the Saddlebred became known as "the peacock of the horse show world." High stepping with exaggerated action, Saddlebreds can actually be five-gaited-walk, trot, canter, slow-gait and rack. Several of the breed became popular in Hollywood, including "Mr. Ed," "Flicka," and a host of horses in Gone with the Wind!
