2008 Saddle & Bridle's Best of Breed List

Edited: 02/01/09 - The Certificate has arrived and it came in a beautiful book like binder with the S&B logo on it. So I photographed the outside cover and then the certificate itself. Very professional and classy presentation of the award.

Happy news today! We made Saddle & Bridle's best of breed list! I am humbly honored and can't wait until our certificate comes in the mail.
Look for this photo, in the March 2009 issue of Saddle & Bridle, where all the results will be published.

  1. Congrats!!! That is AWESOME!!!

    Congrats, too, to Cha-Ching Cha-Ching, our homegirl here in GA. Her posse has worked really hard getting her going as a hunter, and she really looks the part!

  2. Congrats to you! WOW!! That is a fantastic accomplishment!

  3. Thank you both. I have seen video of Cha-Ching Cha-Ching and thought the same thing of her, that she really looked the part. I think it is so important for us to present our hunter Saddlebreds in the proper way. That is the only way this division will thrive. So far, so good.
    I sent my congratulations to all the S&B winners.
