Kentucky Mountain Saddle

From Horse

The people of the Kentucky Mountain area have bred these horses for centuries for their unique smooth gait, hardiness, and calm demeanor. They were an all-purpose horse—capable of working in the fields or carrying a family member to town. The registry was begun in 1989 in an effort to preserve the unique characteristics of these horses. Since this is a new breed one often finds ‘unknown horse’ or horses from other breeds in a registered horse’s family trees only a few generations back
