ASHA High Point Awards Rule Change For 2014



A rule change has been approved effective for the 2014 ASHA High Point Awards program year. Each horse’s rider/driver/handler must now be an active ASHA member in order for a horse to be eligible for year-end High Point awards. This is in addition to horse owners being required to be active ASHA members. If your ASHA membership is not up to date, renew or join now, and your horse will be eligible for a 2014 High Point Award. You must be a member by November 30, 2014.

The ASHA High Point Awards Program recognizes competition achievement by registered Saddlebreds and Half-Saddlebreds in a wide range of categories and disciplines, at all levels, not only in the “traditional” Saddlebred show ring, but also in open breed competition (such as open English pleasure, etc.) and sport horse disciplines. The highest placing horse owned and shown by active ASHA members in each category is named High Point champion. The program awards High Point winners in ten regions and Europe as well as overall national winners. The specific categories recognized in each region vary depending on regional availability and participation.

There is no enrollment required for the program. Every horse that has competition results entered into the ASHA database (or submitted separately to the ASHA) is automatically eligible for consideration as long as its owner and rider/driver/handler are active ASHA members. If your ASHA membership is not up to date, renew or join now, and your horse will be eligible for a 2014 High Point Award.

The 2014 ASHA High Point standings are posted here and include results for all registered American Saddlebreds in the Registry database that are competing during the current program year.  The standings update daily as new results are posted. Be sure to check your horse’s points to see where you stand.
