ASHAM Spring Sizzler Benefit Show a Great Success

The American Saddlebred Horse Association of Michigan (ASHAM) put together a first-ever Spring Sizzler Benefit Horse Show. With show horse and academy classes filling a one-day show, all profits from entries, stalling, concessions, and raffles will go towards the financial support of the 2010 ASHAM Horse Show to be held October 7-9 in Lansing, Michigan.

For the past several years ASHAM has held a Summer Sizzler Horse Show with the same purpose, but with the loss of the MHSA Spring Show this year, it was felt that this might be a good substitute. Needless to say the show was a great success raising over $5,000 with a record number of horses and entries!

Offering a variety of show horse classes including pleasure, performance, and equitation, there was also a full schedule of academy classes for every age and type of rider. In addition, two ride a buck (17 & under and 18 & over) classes were offered as well as egg and spoon. Held at the outdoor Oakland County Fairgrounds in Davisburg, Michigan, the month of May surprised exhibitors with temperatures near the ninety degree and sunny mark!

Many volunteers from various Michigan Saddlebred barns stepped up to assist in any way they could to make the show a great financial success. Thank you to the many volunteers and those that donated items to be sold to help support the 2010 ASHAM Horse Show.

ASHAM will hold a 2010 Summer Sizzler horse show on August 15th offering the same types of classes open to all breeds and riders, not just Saddlebreds or saddle seat. With one successful fundraising show under ASHAM’s belt, there is a great sense of hope that the Summer Sizzler will be just as popular to allow the 2010 ASHAM Horse Show to be a great success!
