Nominate Saddlebred Award Recipients Now



Lexington, Kentucky – There is still time to submit nominations for the American Saddlebred Horse Association’s (ASHA) individual awards; however, the deadline is fast approaching, as nominations must be received by no later than the close of business on Friday, October 30, 2009.

Each year, the Association’s highest honors are presented at the annual Saddlebred Ball, held in conjunction with the ASHA Annual Convention and Youth Conference. This year both the Annual Meeting and the Saddlebred Ball will once again be held at the Griffin Gate Marriott Resort in Lexington, Kentucky, beginning Thursday, February 18, through Saturday, February 20, 2010. The Saddlebred Ball is set for that Saturday evening.

All of the awards – Lifetime Achievement, Meritorious Service, Breeders Hall of Fame, Breeder of the Year, C.J. Cronan and Lurline Roth Sportsmanship Awards, Frank Ogletree Youth Award, Gordon Jenkins International Award, Gillenwater Family Trophy and the Wing Commander Medal – are explained in detail on ASHA's website, here.

Members wishing to make nominations should respond in writing explaining in detail why an individual is deserving of a specific award. The nominations are reviewed by ASHA's Executive Committee, and other committees as necessary. No more than three finalists in each category are chosen to be voted upon by the full Board of Directors.

Please send nominations to ASHA, c/o Brenda Newell, 4083 Iron Works Parkway, Lexington, KY 40511, by fax to (859) 259-1628, or email to b.newell@asha.net; please include "Award Nomination" in the subject line.
