The Owner

Russo and Nancy

Sporthorse Saddlery is the result of owner Nancy Bredeson's desire to combine her business management and marketing skills with the sport that is her lifelong passion. Starting with riding lessons at the Battle Creek Hunt Club at age 9, she enjoyed a successful junior "career" in local and 4-H hunter/jumper competition with half-Arabian mare, Sundial. Following a 10 year hiatus from riding after college ("Someday I'll have enough time and money..yeah, right-when I'm 90!"), Nancy started learning dressage, and quickly acquired an off-the-track Thoroughbred, The Tin Woodsman, with whom she achieved the USDF Qualified Rider Award, and competed successfully through second level dressage. Nancy's current dressage partner is Russo, an opinionated Hanoverian gelding and Sporthorse's official red-head spokesmodel. Work and family obligations have limited their opportunities for showing thus far, but they continue training toward that goal and enjoying the journey.

If you would like us to sponsor or purchase advertising for your event or organization, please send your request to, and include details on the event/organization and the promotional opportunities associated with sponsorship or advertising. We'd love to say yes to every request, but, like you, our budget limits our ability to do everything we'd like to. When we review sponsorship and advertising requests, we consider the following:

We can offer clubs and organizations (school equestrian teams, hunt clubs, etc.) the most value through gift certificate donations. For example, we can generally offer $200 in gift certificates annually to area school equestrian teams. The team can convert that donation to $200 in cash to offset their expenses by selling the gift certificates (in $10, $25 or $50 denominations) to members or anyone else of their choosing. It's a win-win situation-we're able to offer the team or club more support, and the gift certificates bring more traffic into the store.
