Saddlebred Exhibit at 2009 Massachusetts Equine Affaire

Lexington, Kentucky - Beginning tomorrow, Thursday, November 12, through Sunday, November 15, 2009, the American Saddlebred Horse Association (ASHA) will once again sponsor a breed booth at the Equine Affaire© event, to be held at the Eastern States Exposition Center in West Springfield, Massachusetts.

The American Saddlebred exhibit is once again scheduled for all four days of the event, and all members in attendance are encouraged to stop by the booth to say hello. In addition to providing information about the American Saddlebred, this year, there will also be a promotion in which stables in the region will offer a free introductory ride for anyone who has not had the experience of riding a Saddlebred. There will be an entry box at the ASHA booth, and visitors can simply complete an entry form, and they will be connected with their local stable.

The goal of the promotion is to get more riders on the backs of American Saddlebreds, and for their local stables to keep them atop Saddlebreds for the future. The local American Saddlebred Barns and stables supporting the Free Saddlebred Introductory Lesson Promotion are as follows:


Nicholas Villa Stables, North Stonington, Nicholas Villa and Sharon Ellingwood

Somersdream, Somers, Cheryl Innis and Ricky Harris

Wildwood Farm, East Hampton, Jon Douglas
