SASHA Heralds In Southwest Circuit

By Ann Bullard

SAN ANTONIO, Texas - All Texas Saddle Horse roads led to Boerne, Texas on March 5-7, as Saddlebreds and ponies joined Arabians exhibitors for the annual SASHA Charity Horse Show. The event, complete with a fundraising (and comedy) act for the season, kicked off the beginning of the Southwest circuit.

SASHA marked the debut of several of new teams. Jessica Cloud and CH Tax Man and Ashley Bryce with Ya-Ya each won their debut performances under Jack Magill’s direction. Five-gaited horses answered the call for the Five-Gaited Jackpot. Judge Johnny ‘Bo’ Lucas worked them hard before tying Magill aboard Coe and Bill London’s Without Any Doubt. Milo Jones of Lone Star Saddlebreds hit the ring in the Five-Gaited Jackpot with Thomas Shelby’s Charmed By Chance. They tied reserve with a performance that showed they would be a team to be reckoned with throughout the year.

Michael and Megan Beasom, of Victory Lane Farm, Beasom’s mother, Judy Jordan, and grandmother, Beulah Cates, enjoyed a challenging weekend. Not only are all deeply involved in SASHA and show management, Beasom fielded a team of 15 horses. Among those were The Twelfth Night and Harlem’s All Eyes On Me, both of which he rode to the top of their classes.

Blue ribbons flew from the Bluebonnet Farm, Cross Creek Stables, Foster Farms, Jack Magill Stables, Lone Star Saddlebreds, Milligan Stables, Miracle Farm, Paul Cates Stable, SGF Winning Ways Farm and several amateur-owner tack rooms.
