Open Members Forum to be Available on Internet


Lexington, Kentucky ­– The American Saddlebred Horse Association has announced plans to stream live audio on the Internet of its open members forum this Friday, July 14, at 1:30 p.m., ET.

The web cast will be found on the Association’s website,, along with detailed instructions about how to listen. 

Alan F. Balch, ASHA executive secretary, said the web cast is a great way to include all members in the brainstorming session.

"The live feed of the open members forum will be available to everyone who logs on to the Association's web site, both members and non-members," Balch said.  "One of our goals is to keep members informed and actively participating by providing this free-of-charge service to those who aren’t able to make the trip to
Lexington for the meeting.”

The open forum will be conducted by University of Kentucky marketing professors Robert Dahlstrom and Steven Skinner as an “Appreciative Inquiry,” where all attendees will be invited to relate their own energizing experiences of success in the breed, recognizing what is best in the American Saddlebred breed, noting its strengths, appreciating its value, to enhance and inform the advancement process which is now underway.
