ASHA of NJ Held Spring Tournament

The American Saddlebred Horse Association of New Jersey held it’s Spring Tournament on March 9th at the Alexandria Township Park in Milford, New Jersey.

It was a beautiful spring day, perfect for a horse show. There were a total of 69 riders showing from Smoke Hollow, Millstone Riding Academy, Kierson Farm and a new comer, Little Red Riding School. The
Tournament included classes ranging from the young beginner to the seasoned show rider with Judges awards and high point riders crowned at the end of the day. The viewing areas were also filled with friends and family members cheering on their riders.

Some of the blue ribbon winners from the day were first time Tournament rider Laura Kimmel from Kierson Farm. Laura’s daughter Lana was also a blue ribbon winner in the walk/trot 10 & Under Showmanship class. Beth Banik from Millstone Riding Academy won both her Equitation & Showmanship classes. Siena Britt from Smoke Hollow was the winner of the walk/trot 10 & Under Equitation class. New to the Tournament were Hunt Seat Lead Line riders from Little Red Riding School who did a great job in their classes, bringing home blue ribbons.

Zach Byk from Smoke Hollow was the blue ribbon winner in the Lead Line walk/trot 5 & Under class. Also bringing home the blue was Bret Bokman from Millstone Riding Academy showing in the Western class. A big congratulations to all the riders. Everyone did a fantastic job!

A special “Thank You” goes out to our judge Billie Rae Graham from Quakertown, PA and to all the volunteers who helped in making the Tournament such a huge success. They look forward to seeing everyone at their next Tournament on July 20th.
