American Saddlebred Association of Maine Plans Social Events for July Summer Show



Posted May 1, 2002
The American Saddlebred Association of Maine, Inc., show committee met on March 28th to make the final plans for the social events of the ASAM July Summer 3-day Show. The show will take place on July 19-21, 2002, at the Skowhegan State Fairgrounds in Skowhegan, Maine. The show has grown by leaps and bounds since coming back into the state of Maine. New classes have been added each year. Several divisions have grown not just in the number of classes but in the number of entrants per class.

The ASAM July Summer Show has gotten a reputation not only for having a great class lineup, but also have for a great social time. There’s the famous ice cream social, the exhibitor’s party on Saturday evening between the afternoon and evening sessions. Not to be forgotten is the morning coffee and donuts arranged every morning of the show by the hospitality chairperson, Madeline McLucas. A raffle has also been held throughout the show sponsored by either the show committee or the ASB Futurity of Maine (a committee of the ASAM). Last year’s raffle won approximately $300 for some lucky person. In the past, there has been offered for raffle a hand made red, white and blue afghan, a hand made tack box and a handmade bridle and harness box. During the show are the fun classes. Included this year is the “young at heart” class for those 50 years and up, the “ride a five” class (one for adults and one for juniors) and the now famous “theme class.”

The show is affiliated with the Maine Horse Association and the New England Horseman’s Council, the Arabian Horse Association of Maine, the Northern Tennessee Walking Horse Association, the Maine Morgan Horse Association, the Miniature Horse Association, Mass/RI Saddlebred Association and the N.E. Pony Owners/Breeders Association.

Join the ASAM show committee, the American Saddle Horse Breeder’s Futurity of Maine, the hospitality of the secretarial tea, manager Jo High and Judge Frank McConnell for the best and most entertaining show in the east.
