Saddlebred Enthusiasts Needed to Volunteer at FEI Games

Lexington, Kentucky - The Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games will take place Saturday, September 25, 2010, through Sunday, October 10, 2010, at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky. Equine enthusiasts and competitors from all over the world will be attending these World Championships in the eight equestrian disciplines recognized by the FEI (Federation Equestre Internationale, the international federation for equestrian sport headquartered in Switzerland). The World Equestrian Games are held in the even-numbered years every four years between Olympic Games.

American Saddlebred Horse Association (ASHA) President Judith Werner has appointed a committee to plan and execute the showcasing of the American Saddlebred during this wonderful opportunity for national and international exposure and demonstration of our breed.

The American Saddlebred’s presence in the Equine Village at the Games has just been announced, where different breed exhibits, family activities, and equine demonstrations will take place. The breed demonstrations will be ongoing daily during the 16 days of the Games. The Saddlebred breed demonstration is scheduled to last approximately 30 minutes at each performance, including the time to enter and exit the ring. Those exhibitors would be committed to at least a four-day stay at the Horse Park to exhibit their horses at least once a day. The exhibit would showcase the versatility and suitability of the American Saddlebred for a range of equestrian sport and recreation, suitable for ages 7-70.

The ASHA WEG planning committee is asking those interested in volunteering their horses AND their artistic abilities to please fill out the ASHA WEG Participation Application and submit to committee secretary Germaine Johnson by Thursday, December 10, 2009.
