Performance Standardbreds was established in 1990 by a few Standardbred enthusiasts who realized the animal’s enormous potential use for riding or driving. As an organization our focus is and always has been to support and promote the Standardbred horse and those that are lucky enough to own them.   The Standardbred is one of the most versatile breeds by far.  Did you know that by age three, there are many already starting their second careers?  Throughout their early years, the foundation was established and now it’s onwards and upwards for these athletic, sturdy, sensible, beautiful  horses who's hearts are (virtually)bigger than their bodies.  Standardbreds  participate in  jumping, dressage, endurance and competitive trail,  just to name a few – there really is no limit to what you or they can accomplish together. Performance Standardbreds promotes the breed in a new and positive light. Recognizing the potential and the need to give these horses,  that are no longer able to race,  new careers

About Us...

Driving Clinic Review

 Our Learn to Drive Clinic with clinician Dwight Beard was held on the Sept.5-7 weekend .   The clinic comprised a group session the first day covering topics like , how to choose a driving horse, harness and cart/carriage suitability, and how to assess a suitable horse.

 Private 1 hr. lessons followed and were tailored to the horse/handler /driver experience.  Most participants were brand new to driving and spent time learning to ground drive, harness, and in some cases hobble their horses.

 Our Placement Ambassador-"Cinnamon Cracker," initiated his new role at the clinic and he never put a hoof wrong! He had not been driven in a few years but as most , he was quite comfortable being hooked up again.  He was instrumental in giving participants their first feel of the lines and the smiles could not have been bigger!
