2005 National Pleasure Horse Awards to be presented at ASHA Annual Luncheon


Lexington, Kentucky ­– The 2005 National Pleasure Horse Award winners have been named in eight divisions, all of which are based on a highpoint scoring system.  All registered American Saddlebreds are eligible for these awards without payment of additional fees.    


The National Pleasure Horse Awards are based on a formula that favors horses that are consistent winners across the country.  The system, which crowns eight champions, is based on the USEF rating of the show and the number of entries in the class.  The complete explanation of the points system, eligibility requirements and rules can be found by clicking here.


For the first time, there was a tie in one of the divisions, showing how important every class and every performance really is.  The final top-10 points standing can be found by clicking here
