ASAW Participates In Midwest Horse Fair

The American Saddlebred Association of Wisconsin is participated in the Midwest Horse Fair April 20-22nd at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison, Wisconsin. The Fair is the largest three-day horse fair in America. 
More than 300 clinics, seminars, and educational took place throughout the weekend, along with the 33 breed demonstrations. This Fair brings over 40,000 people in their gates throughout the weekend.  

The Saddlebred demonstration has been a favorite of the crowd since ASAW's participation many years ago. Divisions represented this year included five-gaited, park pleasure, show pleasure, pleasure driving, hunter pleasure, western pleasure and the popular crowd pleasing parade division. 

A beautiful red, white and blue booth was set up in the barn with various breed brochures and information on barns in the State of Wisconsin.  

ASAW members were on hand to answer any questions from visitors, including those asked in regards to shoeing methods and tail sets.  

Participants included Brandi and Jimmy Bushard, Mark Nesson, Lisa Nesson, Grace Hable, Christine Sannes, Vanessa Lawrence and Trinity Middleton. Keen Behringer, a William Woods graduate and owner of Sublime Saddlebreds, was the saddle seat clinician for the weekend. 

Brandi Bushard rode a five-gaited horse and, at eight months pregnant, they demonstrated not only how fun our horses are to ride but how safe they are for the mother-to-be. Their demonstration drew great interest and lots of comments from the crowd.
