Georgian Grande Horse

Country of Origin: USA

Georgian Grande - trot under saddle

Intro

The Georgian Grande is a relatively new breed and one native to North America. Emerging during the 1970′s in response to a need for bringing back the larger, heavier breed of Saddlebreds.

Origins

As Saddlebred breeds continued to become more & more refined, the older, more robust type fell out of fashion. By combining the blood of Saddlebred animals with that of draft types Mr. George Wagner created an impressive creature that pays testament to the larger Saddlebreds of days past. Georgian Grande translates to George’s Great Horse.

In 1994 the International Georgian Horse Registry was formed and since then the Georgian has grown in popularity in a variety of equine disciplines.
