If your horse is gaited it can be registered! It is not too late to get your gaited horse in as part of the foundation stock of this new and exciting gaited horse breed!

The Pleasure Saddle Horse Registry was formed to give gaited horse breeders an opportunity to crossbreed different breeds of gaited horses. The Registry validates and records the offspring from these matings with a permanent record and registration papers.

Many of you can recall your grandparents and great grandparents referring to their family’s best riding horses as "saddle horses". People had ranch work horses, farm work horses, buggy horses, and saddle horses. Most of the time their best saddle horses were the gaited horses that gave an easy ride in the saddle, thus the name.

As time passed, many of these early horse breeders began breeding horses to enhance their gaits. The selective breeding of these young pioneers created some of the world's best gaited horse breeds of today. To name just a few, the American Saddlebred, Tennessee Walking Horse, Missouri Fox Trotting Horse, and Mountain Horses.

In more recent times, the books of most of these gaited horse registries have closed. The closing of the books was a good thing for the most part, but it has discouraged that pioneer spirit to create something new. It is a well known fact that a crossbred animal often possesses what is known as an "outcross vigor". The Pleasure Saddle Horse Registry allows people with pioneering spirit to crossbreed gaited horses, to create something new and perhaps even something better.

Most of your questions will be answered as you browse this website. See the PSHR's 8 simple Rules and Frequently Asked Questions FAQ. You will find a list of all the recognized breeds that can be crossbred on the Breed Code Key page. An official application for registration form can be found on the Forms page.
