Louisville to Confirm Registrations Electronically

Lexington, Kentucky - The American Saddlebred Horse Association (ASHA) and American Saddlebred Registry (ASR) have announced that the Kentucky State Fair World's Championship Horse Show (WCHS) has made arrangements to confirm electronically all the registration, ownership, and membership requirements of all entries in American Saddlebred classes at its 2009 competition.

Entries close on Monday, June 29, 2009, and must bear a postmark on or before that date, for the competition beginning Sunday, August 23. All entries must be received in the Kentucky State Fair Horse Show Office by 5 PM Eastern Daylight Time on Monday, July 6, regardless of postmark, and any entries received after that date will be returned.

Scarlett Mattson, Horse Show Manager, stated that for the last few years the WCHS and ASR had been working well together on electronic confirmation and close verification of Saddlebred registrations, ownerships, and memberships.  Taking this step formally at this time, in accordance with applicable United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) rules, will ease a paperwork burden on most exhibitors, and also provide for more efficient mailing of entries to the Kentucky State Fair and office processing.

"We are pleased to continue working this way with the World's Championship Horse Show," stated Katriona Adams, Registry Associate.  "Anything we can do to simplify the entry process and assist ASHA and USEF members is of great benefit to everyone, and this step is consistent with the steps we have taken to reduce paperwork with our new Statements of Registration and Ownership."
