Who We Are and What We Do

A Distinct Identity




We are a positive, proactive resource for owners, breeders and trainers of American Saddlebred horses.  We work to assist horses in transition in to new purpose, therefore, preventing the need for rescue later. 
Contact us to learn more about our commitment to this cause.

There are times when we need to assist American Saddlebreds who are in need of traditional rescue and face, including but not limited to, physical, mental or behavioral challenges.  These horses require additional financial support and take longer to repurpose.
Your donations make a difference every day in the lives of these horses.  We could not help them without you.

We make a living by what we get.

We make a life by what we give.

Here at The American Saddlebred Legacy Foundation, alongside our partners at The Right Horse Initiative, we are committed to being a positive, proactive resource for breeders, owners and trainers of American Saddlebred horses in transition.  We strive to build productive relationships and make a positive impact, meeting each horse right where they are and assisting on a case by case basis.

Breed preservation and promotion are always on our mind, and we believe by demonstrating the versatility of these horses we all have the ability to drive revenue back in to our industry.   Each horse holds a value that relates to our greater communities by creating a job for a groom, a farrier, a vet, a horse hauler and also creates a need for our local hay farmers and feed producers.  When we lose horses from our industry to brokers and in need of rehabilitation when they are found at-risk of slaughter, we are losing revenue that could have stayed in our current barns or gone to create new programs and build demand for our breed.  The time is now to not be of such an instant gratification mindset, but begin to think about what we are leaving behind for future generations of horse men and women that love the American Saddlebred.
