Entries closing for new Harrisburg (PA) ASHA Regional Championships


Lexington, Kentucky ­– Entries are closing at midnight Wednesday, September 7 (by USPS postmark) for the new American Saddlebred Horse Association Regional Championships at the Pennsylvania National Horse Show in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania


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 keep the breed part of the largest multi-breed indoor horse show remaining on the nation’s calendar.  With 30,000 spectators annually, Harrisburg is an important show in the ASHA’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 Eastern Regional Championships, for ASHA and USEF 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).  For details, consult the horse show website, or call (717) 770-0222.


Saddlebred classes at the Pennsylvania National begin Wednesday, October 19 and conclude Saturday, October 22, 2005.  Other than the ASHA Regional Championships, the event is highlighted by the finals of the National Horse Show Equitation Class (the “Good Hands”) Friday, October 21.
