SADDLEBRED SELFIE SCAVENGER HUNT

We will start the remainder of our activities on Sunday which will include new this year, a Saddlebred Selfie Scavenger Hunt! There will be a new list each day with a clue as to what the participants need to take a selfie with and the first one to complete the list and bring back to Saddlebred Center will receive a prize.  All completed lists each day will go into a drawing for a grand prize of Beats at the end of the week.

ASHA GOLF CART DECORATING CONTEST

This will be the 7th year for the ASHA Golf Cart Decorating Contest-a fundraiser for the ASHA Youth Scholarships.  The carts will be judged on Thursday afternoon after the morning session.

ASHA PHOTO BOOTH

Also new this year will a photo booth! For a small donation, have your picture made Sunday through Friday, with last year’s World Champions to commemorate your week at Louisville! The booth will also be open after the First Timer’s presentation for photos with the WCHS backdrop.

SADDLEBRED CELEBRITIES

New this year for the adults, we have Saddlebred Celebrities, a fundraiser to support ASHA Youth Scholarships.  The contest runs from Sunday through Thursday.  Photos of Saddlebred Celebrities will be posted in Saddlebred Center, contestants who correctly identify all the pictures will be in a drawing for a Margarita Machine.
