Louisville live web cast available at

, Kentucky ­– For the first time in the 102-year history of the World's Championship Horse Show, the entire show will be televised.  Courtesy of Richfield Video's closed circuit feed, it may be viewed on the American Saddlebred Horse Association's website,

The web cast will stream live action for every class, Sunday August 21 through Saturday, August 27.  The show starts 9 a.m. each morning and 6:30 p.m. for the evening sessions, except for Friday and Saturday when the evening sessions start at 7 p.m.

Alan F. Balch, ASHA executive secretary, said the web cast is a great promotional tool.

"The feed of the World's Championship Horse Show will be available to everyone who logs on to the Association's new website, members and non-members," Balch said.  "One of our goals is for people who are unfamiliar to the American Saddlebred to be able to view and learn about its talents at the highest level."

"We also want to provide a service to all existing Saddlebred lovers who aren't able to make the trip to Louisville for the World's Championship Horse Show," Balch said.  "Since nothing of this magnitude has been attempted before, we hope that our servers can accommodate the high volume of traffic we expect. Any technical difficulties will be addressed as quickly as possible."
