The idea occurred to owners of Hackney horses throughout the western states and indeed residents of several parts of the country had actually taken steps to form a similar society some months prior to the organization of the AHHS.

The American Saddlebred remains the ultimate show horse, high-stepping and elegant. A show horse is a spectacle of beauty and grace but is also an intense athletic competitor. American Saddlebreds compete in four primary divisions in the show ring: Five-Gaited, Three-Gaited, Fine Harness and Pleasure. Each division has its own "look," and competitors should be groomed to perfection. Five-gaited, fine harness and show pleasure horses are exhibited with full manes and tails. Five-gaited horses are shown with roached, or trimmed, manes to accentuate their long, fine necks.
