I've never joined a group before :noes: I have a TWH. Do I just click Join and start submitting things? Sweating a little...  I am a dummy!

Firmakeppni is a gaited show for icelandic horses (but we allow all breeds) and we would alos love to see some pacing, tölting, racking horses in the Mounted Archery class ;)

Hello. I am very interested in joining the HARPG community and i am wondering how i could get a hold of an american saddlebred? Im assuming there is no just designing a horse. Thanks ahead of time! <3
casca-x Aug 18, 2012
oh yes you can just design your own horses all you want!
it's an actual, real-life breed so no one on dA could possibly be allowed to make any rules about it!
WolfSoul101 Aug 18, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh, really? Hmm...does that not mess up the value of breeding and bloodlines and such when everybody can just make ans many horses as they want out of nowhere? I would ave figured that the people who first had interest in saddlebreds for HARPG would have made the founding horses and then went from there to keep things organized and fair. No?
casca-x Aug 18, 2012
nah, not really. most players don't really care about the "value" of their horses (though we all like to make believe our horses are the best!), they just like to experience the joy of designing their dream horses, whether that's through breeding, adopting someone else's design, or designing themselves c:

see, the whole "i brought this breed into the game first therefore i have control over who gets to own them" can be a problem, because what if someone isn't friends with one of the few people who first started breeding Saddlebreds and they want to get into it? it can be hard for a new artist to break into a game if they need to rely on someone else who is already involved giving/selling them a horse. (i dunno if you're familiar with Nordanners or not but they have that same problem-- if you're new to dA it is VERY HARD to aquire your first Nordanner if you don't have friends, gobs of artistic talent, or lots of points/money.)

you don't need to take the game too seriously! just draw what you like, whether it's realistic purebred Saddlebreds with IRL horses as their parents and all their genotypes planned out, or 20hh Saddlebreds crossed with Unicorns with purple spots and glowsticks! we are a very easygoing and laid-back group who support creativity and artistic freedom!

if you're looking to aquire your first Saddlebred and you want it to have bloodlines, just check out our American Saddlebred folder and find a mare and stallion you like, then ask the owners if you can breed them together. :)
