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.
