American Saddlebred Museum & Gift Shop and American Saddlebred Horse Association Announce Joint Vent



Lexington, KY – The American Saddlebred Museum & Gift Shop is excited to announce a new joint venture with the American Saddlebred Horse Association.   ASHA has granted the Museum’s Gift Shop the exclusive right to sell merchandise featuring their newly released logo.

 

“We are excited to offer American Saddlebred enthusiasts the chance to showcase their breed pride with apparel featuring the new ASHA logo,” says Museum Gift Shop Manager Megan McClure.  “I feel that the design will work well in many ways, across multiple platforms.”

 

While a release date has yet to be determined, Gift Shop customers can expect to see the new items this summer.  Plans are in the works for a variety of apparel and souvenir options for all age ranges.  The pieces will be available to industry insiders, as well as the thousands of Kentucky Horse Park guests that come through the Gift Shop’s doors.

 

While the Museum takes pride in cultivating the American Saddlebred’s rich history, we are always looking for opportunities to advance the breed’s future.  This venture with ASHA is a step towards our mutual goal of introducing the American Saddlebred to the broadest audience possible.  

 

The American Saddlebred Museum and Gift Shop, aka The Showplace for Saddlebreds, is located on the grounds of the Kentucky Horse Park, and is open daily from 9 am – 5 pm. Admission to the Museum also includes free admission to the Kentucky Horse Park. As always, Museum members receive free admission to both the Showplace for Saddlebreds and the Kentucky Horse Park, as well as 10% off on Gift Shop and online purchases.  Contact Megan McClure at megan@asbmuseum.org  or 859-259-2746 for more information.
