Saddlebreds Introduced to Locust Trace AgriScience Farm

Locust Trace AgriScience Farm's high school students learned about Saddlebreds during a presentation on Tuesday, May 15. 

Brenda Newell and Michelle Krentz of the American Saddlebred Horse Association (ASHA) shared promotional and educational videos with the students before offering brochures, USEF Student Athlete booklets, and Equestrian Life's free riding lesson coupons. The students were eager to pick up the materials, especially the free riding lesson coupons. After claiming their materials, the students walked over to the indoor arena to watch and meet American Saddlebreds in person, through the generosity of Clouse Stables of Versailles, Kentucky and Spring Hill Stable of Georgetown, Kentucky. 

Clark Clouse and Hannah Herbst rode Just Go With It, a Park Pleasure gelding, then Alison Walker rode Mountjoy's Town Boy, a show pleasure gelding, and Todd Walker Rode Ask Me Why, a three-gaited mare, and B-Five-Blue, a park gelding. The students were thoroughly engaged in the presentations and asked many questions. Clouse invited the students to pet Just Go With It, and they all jumped on the opportunity. The sweet gelding loved the attention. 

ASHA President Tandy Patrick was proud to have American Saddlebreds included in the Locust Trace curriculum, 

"ASHA is delighted to participate in the equine center at Locust Trace; this was a unique opportunity to share information about the American Saddlebred with students interested in agriculture-related careers. ASHA looks forward to exploring ways that ASHA can be involved in educational curricula at this and other schools and universities that incorporate equine science as a discipline."
