The ASHA is excited to announce that the new “Breed Ambassador Program” was unanimously approved by the ASHA Board on May 11, and information and materials are now available for download for immediate use.(program details, points, charter clubs regional listings) Any Saddlebred promotional activity done during the calendar year WILL be counted, retroactive to January 1, 2015. The ASHA Breed Ambassador Program seeks to recognize and reward the many things members are already doing to introduce our beautiful horses to the non-Saddlebred public by giving points for activities like taking a Saddlebred to an open breed show, riding in parades, conducting a seminar, riding in organized all-breed trail rides, giving public riding lessons, holding camps, putting on shows, garnering media attention, and much more. We recognize that different methods work in different areas, and that not all regions have the same type of equine activities or even Saddlebred populations, but members are not limited by discipline or access to ASB-specific clubs or events. Additionally, there will be Breed Ambassadors in three different categories: Individual, Barn Group, or Charter Club. Read more.
