You don’t want to miss this segment of the Blowing Rock Charity Horse Show! The Saddlebred classes are loaded with chrome and flash. The atmosphere at a Saddlebred show is electric, with spectators shouting encouragement and rooting for their favorites from the stands. The most exciting classes are the Three and Five Gaited Open Championship classes. Equally exciting are the Roadster classes, shown both under saddle and in harness. Competing with the big, beautiful Saddlebreds are the Hackney ponies, just as flashy as their larger counterparts. Also not to be missed is the fine harness division, where carriages and harness can be compared to the cost of your house! And the Frisians–gentle giants of the show ring–are a special treat at Blowing Rock.
