3/8/15 March Madness

March is often associated with college basketball playoffs, so here is the blog's version of March Madness.   Check out magazines from Saddlebred publications from March of 1936 through March of 1985.  Each decade features a magazine cover and picture of an American Saddlebred from all across America, some well known and some obscure.  Make your brackets and choose your final four!  Who is your pick to win it all?
