All American Cup Bus Tour

On Friday, July 11, 2008, There’s a BIG day planned for you. Treat yourself to a spectacular day, touring five famous beautiful American Saddlebred Farms. Up close and personal, you will see grand stallions that produce beautiful babies. The buses are Luxury Coaches, so you’ll be very comfortable, and there will be an entertaining speaker on each bus. You will hear amazing stories, you will laugh, and you will probably step off that bus and realize, that you learned something too. For starters, someone special is bound to tell you the story about WC Blackberry Delight, Indiana Ace, Wild Country and many others, (guess who?). There are some surprise gifts to be given away, Jim Aikman is making available to those on the tour, special DVDs. See America’s "best" compete for $180,000 in the 2007 All American Cup on one of them, and you will be able to learn about his teaching methods on training colts and mares foaling (you will see the Dam of "I’m A New Yorker" delivering her baby 25 years ago). All of this and more are on these "free" DVDs that will be given to you.

Chances are, while on the bus tour, you will get hungry. A free sack lunch with the famous "Nottage Cottage" Candies will keep you going. Before starting the bus tour, the ASB Museum is opening their doors at 6 AM and giving a special discount on every item in the Museum, so you can purchase items you’ve always wanted. Also, through the generosity of Peter and Lynn Via, a free catered Continental Breakfast will be provided.

Wouldn’t you like to attend an event that will entertain and teach you more in 8 hours about the American Saddlebred than anything you have ever done in your life? Make your reservations now. There are a limited number of buses and they are filling up! They won’t be able to take last minute orders. Contact Jim Aikman via email at
