Entries still accepted for Pennsylvania National Horse Show in Harrisburg, new Regional Championship



Editor’s Note: The following is reprinted from the ASHA


Lexington, Kentucky ­– Late entries are still being accepted for the new ASHA Regional Championships at the Pennsylvania National Horse Show (PNHS) in Harrisburg for a $25 late fee as specified in the prize list.


In addition to accepting late entries, stalls remain available.


Held at the recently expanded and modernized Farm Show Arena complex, conditions for American Saddlebreds will be the most convenient in the show’s 60-year history.  In addition, the classification for Saddlebreds has been revamped after consultation with a committee of horsemen and professionals who have joined the show as advisors to maintain the American Saddlebred presence in the largest multi-breed indoor horse show remaining on the nation’s calendar.  With 30,000 spectators annually, Harrisburg is an important show in American Saddlebred Horse Association’s emerging efforts to improve public education about and support of the breed around the country.


Historic trophies, upgraded ribbons and honors and increased recognition will all be part of the newly approved ASHA Regional Championships for ASHA and United States Equestrian Federation Regions 11 and 12 including states from Virginia to Maine.  In five-gaited, three-gaited and park horse sections, regional championships will be awarded in open, juvenile and amateur classes.  Also included in the Regional Championship format will be events in fine harness, show pleasure and country pleasure (both western and English).  Further information can be obtained from the show’s website,  The prize list can be found by clicking here or going to  For additional information on late entries or about the show please contact Elizabeth Shorb, PNHS president, by calling (717) 770-0222 or e-mailing
