Saddlebred Rescue Teams with Bluegrass Futurity

Callaway Hills Stables, The Blue Grass Futurity, and Saddlebred Rescue are joining forces in an effort to help ensure a bright future for the American Saddlebred.

This joint venture is made possible by the generous donation by Callaway Hills Stables, one of the most influential breeding programs in the industry, of a breeding to Callaway’s The Gipper or Callaway’s Cranston (winning bidder’s choice). This service will be offered at the Blue Grass Futurity Auction on Sunday January 25, 2009 . The money raised by this horse will be donated to Saddlebred Rescue while the high bidder’s resulting foal will still have full eligibility for the Blue Grass Futurity.

The Blue Grass Futurity has awarded over $700,000 in the seven years since it’s inception. Classes are offered in two divisions each year, a weanling in hand class as well as a 2-year old fine harness class. All classes will be held at The Kentucky Fall Classic Horse Show. All classes will be conducted under the rules of USEF. Information on the Futurity is available at or via email .

Saddlebred Rescue is there to help those horses who have not been as fortunate in their lives, but still have a lot to give back to the industry as a whole. Horses that are no longer useable in their current position often find themselves at auctions and sometimes slaughter bound. Saddlebred Rescue’s goal is to save those horses they can and place them in situations like lesson programs where they can benefit the entire industry by bringing in new blood to our industry. New Saddlebred enthusiasts are always welcome! Remember, the breed of horse you start on is often the breed you will continue on throughout your equestrian career.

Please take advantage of this opportunity to breed to one of these wonderful horses, support Saddlebred Rescue and win money!
