All American Saddlebred horse shows are encouraged to record their 2016 competitions with the American Saddlebred Horse Association (ASHA).

All competitions must be recorded with the ASHA in order for exhibitors to earn qualifying points for the Kentucky State Fair World's Championship Horse Show (WCHS) in 2016 and 2016 ASHA High Point Awards. The ASHA Competition Registration Form must be received by the ASHA at least two weeks prior to your show’s dates (the earlier the better). If results are to be counted for WCHS qualifying, exceptions must be approved by WCHS management. Benefits to registering your competition with the ASHA include:

  • Your exhibitors’ results will count toward qualifying for the Kentucky State Fair’s World’s Championship Horse Show and/or ASHA High Point Awards.
  • Results will be included on the individual horses' competition records on the ASHA Web site.
  • Free listing in the Competition Calendar on the ASHA Web site.

Results must be submitted to the ASHA within ten (10) days of the last day of the competition.
