American Saddlebreds will be in the Spotlight at the 2019 Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event

The American Saddlebred Horse Association (ASHA) has been afforded the fantastic opportunity to exhibit our breed at the prestigious Land Rover Kentucky Three Day Event by US Equestrian. USEF Affiliates have two chances to perform demonstrations for the Land Rover crowd Thursday, April 25th (4-5pm) and Saturday, April 27th (3-4pm). Each Affiliate will have the opportunity to present three horses for 15 minutes in the Walnut Ring located next to the Rolex Arena and placed in amongst the very popular and heavily trafficked vendor area.

We are thrilled to have the platform to showcase our horses at one of the most significant equine events in the country. The premise of the demonstration is to highlight each affiliate breed and how they are most commonly presented at USEF competitions — educating the audience on the breed and judging standards of their disciplines. We will have stand out representatives with an extensive resume of accomplishments from recognized horse shows from both Autumn Hills Farm and Visser Stables. CH It’s Aerosmith, Carl JNR, Walterway’s Born To Be Wild, Far Away C’est Si Bon and Fox Grape’s Forget-Me-Not are some of the world class caliber horse they will be showcasing.  

We are humbled to have such quality horses that will be perfect examples of the different American Saddlebred divisions. This will be an opportunity for thousands of spectators to have the chance to meet and interact with our great breed! The ASHA greatly appreciates US Equestrian for the opportunity they have given their Affiliates at this grand event. Also, our deepest gratitude Autumn Hills Farm and Visser Stables and their owners for dedicating their time, these fantastic horses and providing us the opportunity to have great representation of the American Saddlebred breed and how they shine in USEF competitions.
