Pleasure, Park, and Western Invitational Points Now Available

Lexington, Kentucky - Pleasure, Park, and Western Country Pleasure Invitational qualifying points standings are now posted on the American Saddlebred Horse Association’s (ASHA) Web site, here . The standings will update on a next-day basis whenever competition results are entered into ASHA's database.

It should be noted that the first qualifying requirement prior to review of point totals accumulated is that any horse entered in Show Pleasure, Country Pleasure, or Park at the Kentucky State Fair must have shown in a minimum of six classes in three or more different shows during the qualifying period of July 1, 2008 to June 30, 2009. Points will come into play only after the minimum criteria are met, and if the number of qualified entries in any particular class exceeds the maximum number as specified in the Qualifying Requirements.

Western Pleasure exhibitors are reminded of the change for 2009, which states that starting January 1, 2009, all competitions registered with ASHA, not just USEF-licensed, will count for points in qualifying for the Western Invitational.

All competitions hosting classes for Saddlebreds are encouraged to register their competitions with ASHA in order to be included in the Kentucky State Fair World’s Championship Horse Show qualifying system. There is no cost to register a competition. The registration form can be found and downloaded here. Competitions must register at least ten days prior to their competition dates and submit their prize lists and official results in a timely manner for exhibitors’ points to be included.

Complete Pleasure/Park and Western Invitational Qualifying Requirements for the Kentucky State Fair World’s Championship Horse Show can be found here. A copy of the qualification system rules can also be requested in writing, at the following address:
