national show horse

It is now established as a separate breed, since the founding of a breed registry in August 1981. Registered animals today may be the offspring of registgered NSH parents or may be a combination between an American Saddlebred, Arabian, and a National Show Horse. Non-NSH mares and stallions must be registered with their appropriate registries, and stallions who are Arabian or Saddlebred must additionally be nominated and approved by the NSHR board of directors. Although any combination of these three breeds may be used, there must be at least 25% Arabian blood in the horse to be registered, up to 99% Arabian blood.

The National Show Horse, (NSH), originated as a cross between an American Saddlebred and an Arabian horse.
