Cedar Winds Farm was started by Priscilla Barber whose family dates back into the
1930's with American Saddlebreds when her grandmother Minta and namesake Priscilla
owned and rode Saddlebreds in Madison Wisconson. Pris' love for the breed began at age 3
and has not abated. Her children Melinda , Pierce, and Nicholas all rode and showed.  Pris
purchased Regal's Pride in 1972 and hasn't looked back. The love of American Saddlebred
Horses and horses in general continues with Melinda who does most of the showing today.
Cedar Winds was established in Tonagnoxie Kansas in 1978.  The breeding
program began with mares by Colonel Boyle, Royal Rex Sea, Barrymore Rex
Peavine, and Courageous Admiral.  Sires used during those year included
Sultan's Americana, Symbol Sensation, Fleet Admiral's Commodore among
In 1983 Cedar Winds Farm relocated to Carlisle PA .  Melinda Barber and her horses won top
awards thru American Saddlebred Horse Association, American Show Horse Association,
Pennsylvania Saddlebred Horse Association and Saddle and Bridle Magazine.  We competed in
top shows throughout the Mid Atlantic and at the Kentucky State Fair with Beau's Lucky
Inheritress, Regal's Pride, Replay, Cherokee Event, Vanity's Carmelita,
Americana's Easter Evening, Sugar Hollow Squire aka Simply Southern, Stonewall's
Starglitter. Watch Out, Watch Out for Me Too, Commander's Kansa Chieftan, Saturday Nite
Out, Society's Golden Derby and Roses So Red.
In most cases our horses were trained at home but
Melinda trained under John Whalen and Jimmy Orphanos
in her last years in Equitation and now has a few
prospects in training with Bill Heizer in Staunton, VA.
