The first American Saddlebred animal to display the golden coat was a foal who was born in 1864 named Pat Cleburne, thus beginning a new line of genetics. These animals follow breeding & type guidelines of the ASHA and the main requirement for registering and breeding is the shiny copper palomino coloring. Although, it’s not just about color, this breed should be well refined and smooth to ride.
