There is a lot of interesting information concerning the origin of the Spotted Saddle Horse. Spotted Horses have been always popular with Horsemen. Even in prehistoric times men scratched the pictures of these animals on the walls of caves. The American Indians who were thought to be the world's greatest horsemen used these horses in their wars. They selected spotted ponies as their war mounts. The roots of Spotted Saddle Horses can be traced back to the Icelandic ponies. These Icelandic ponies were often spotted, naturally gaited and possessed the strength and stamina necessary for war use. At the end of the Civil War, many of these horses were imported to the newly formed United States. The breeding of these Horses resulted in the production of the colorful Horses that had stronger genetics. Nowadays the Spotted Saddle Horses are good for use in any task and anywhere.
