Elisabeth Goth – Lebanon, KY

Elisabeth Goth first became involved with American Saddlebreds in 1986.  She owns more than 20 broodmares, and competes at the sport’s highest levels.  She has been an active member of numerous Saddlebred organizations and committees over the years, including the USEF, the ASHA, the American Saddlebred Museum, the KSOBA, the ASHA’s Standards and Rules Committee, the National Horse Show, the Charity Fair Horse Show, and the California Saddle Horse Breeders Association.  Elisabeth is a member of the UPHA, the AHHS, and the American Morgan Association; she currently represents the ASHA on the USEF Board of Directors.  She previously served on the ASHA Board of Directors from 1998 until 2004.  She is an associate member of the UPHA and a member of the AHHS.

Elisabeth has a high degree of expertise in financial, organizational, and communication skills, and has been involved in the development of innovative programs for Saddlebreds.  She is the recipient of the ASHA Breeder of the Year Award and the ASHA Lurline Roth Sportsmanship Award; the UPHA Sallie B. Wheeler Distinguished Service Award and UPHA Associate Award;  and she was the USEF Equestrian of the Year in 1997.  She has been a tireless and generous supporter of various ASHA activities, especially youth events.

If elected to the ASHA Board, Elisabeth would have a particular interest in developing programs to encourage the breeding of American Saddlebreds, to increase futurity participation, to consider initiating and expanding new divisions, and to re-evaluate what the ASHA offers to Saddlebred breeders and owners.  She believes the ASHA should maintain ongoing support for all avenues for the breed, and should continue to support lesson programs, youth programs, and smaller shows, as well as ongoing educational efforts.
