Georgian Grande Facts & Information (Breed Profile)
To recreate the classic, baroque-style Saddlebred type of a horse ridden by cavalry officers, an Ohio breeder called George Wagner Jr. started crossing Saddlebreds with certain draft breeds in the 1970s.
For a horse to be allowed to register there has to be at least 25% Saddlebred blood, but no more than 75%.
The Georgian Grande is approved as a participating breed by both the United States Dressage Federation (USDF), and the United States Equestrian Federation (USEF).

Calm and quiet, willing to please, but spirited
The head is shaped well, and the eyes are big.
The neck is long, arched and muscular.
The back is short and strong.
The legs are clean, and straight.
The hooves are well-shaped.
The front legs of the Georgian Grande are positioned forward under the shoulder, and the hocks are carried far below the body, which produces great impulsion at all gaits, and gives the breed an “uphill” appearance.
They are great movers having a lot of suspension and extension in the trot which makes them very suitable for dressage.
