Southern Saddlebred started out as an auction in April, 2012. Scarlett Mattson had the brilliant idea of adding a horse show along with the sale, and so we did. We discontinued the sales after the second year, but the shows continued to grow into two of the strongest for Saddlebreds, Hackneys and Roadsters in the Southeast.
As horse trainers, we've been regular supporters of horse shows for over 30 years. We decided from the beginning, if we were going to host horse shows, we were going to be sure that they were FUN and FRIENDLY. Starting with the way we communicate with trainers prior to the show, to the way you are treated from the time you arrive until the last class on Saturday night, our goal is to make your week with us as easy and pleasant as possible. Our hospitality is second to none starting with a Welcome Luncheon, breakfast daily, beer and wine nightly, and a fun Exhibitor Party with live Nashville entertainment on Friday night. Jackie dots every i, crosses every t, and the Hales make themselves available to insure your experience is a good one.
