US Saddle Seat Invitational Teams Announced

The United States Saddle Seat Invitational, hosted by the US Saddle Seat Association, will be held in New Orleans, LA at Cascade Stables June 27 through June 30, 2023.  This competition will feature two teams from US and a Canadian Team.  We are excited to welcome the teams, coaches and supporters to a town with incredible history, cuisine, music, architecture, and experiences.

We were overjoyed by the abundance of applications for the US Teams.  Our selectors worked tirelessly to narrow a strong pool of applicants to choose two talented teams.

The US teams will compete against each other and Canada. Therefore, there will be two independently named US teams, the Stars and the Stripes.
