Saddlebred Museum’s 2008 Exhibit Features Children and Saddlebreds



The American Saddlebred Museum is asking for your help in locating film footage, photographs, artifacts and memorabilia for the 2008 special exhibit For the Love of a Horse: Children and Saddlebreds.

 

The American Saddlebred Museum is asking for your help in locating film footage, photographs, artifacts and memorabilia for the 2008 special exhibit For the Love of a Horse: Children and Saddlebreds. They are searching for photos and memorabilia that feature children interacting with Saddlebreds, specifically those taken outside of the show ring. They need items pertaining only to those who have aged out of the juvenile division, not photos of current junior exhibitors. Of course, the more historic the photo, the better.

         

The goal of this exhibit is to show the public that the Saddlebred is not only the “peacock of the show ring”, but also is a trustworthy “gentle giant” with children. Images showing children of all ages riding, grooming, playing and just hanging out with Saddlebreds will really help to get this message across. The museum is not opposed to using some ring shots, but they should show something unique or particularly spectacular.

         

The exhibit will kick off on Feb. 15, 2008, with an opening party during ASHA’s Annual Meeting and will run through Dec. 30, 2008. They are asking for either a loan of items for the duration of the exhibit and/or copies of photos that can become part of their permanent collection. They all know the saying “Saddlebreds make good kids” so please help them mount an exhibit that celebrates children and their Saddlebred friends.
