Volunteers Needed For ASB Booth



On November 12-15, 2009, the American Saddlebred Horse Association (ASHA) will again sponsor a breed booth at the Equine Affaire© event, being held at the Eastern States Exposition Center in West Springfield, Massachusetts. Equine Affaire©, the nation's premiere national equine exposition and equestrian gathering, organizes four days of clinics, seminars, demonstrations and exhibits, with an attendance of over 100 thousand horse enthusiasts.

"Similar to last year, the ASHA booth will feature the versatility of the American Saddlebred Horse, highlighting the 'I’ll Take You There' campaign. This is an incredible opportunity for us to engage tens of thousands of people and educate them about the wonderful breed we all love," according to ASHA members and event coordinators Susan Vine and Mark Strong.

In addition to the informational breed booth, the 2009 exhibit will also feature a "Saddlebred Star" each day, allowing attendees to get up close and personal with an American Saddlebred. Following up on last year’s popular breed demonstration, which highlighted nine different divisions in which Saddlebreds compete, there will be an equally exciting and crowd-pleasing Saddlebred performance on Sunday afternoon at 1PM in the main Coliseum. Equine Affaire© organizers have also chosen to include two Saddlebreds in the musical extravaganza "Pfizer Fantasia," which plays to a sold-out crowd of over 5,000 fans each night during the Equine Affaire©.

Saddlebred enthusiasts are needed to help staff the ASHA breed information booth. Volunteers are asked to sign-up in 4-hour shifts throughout the 4-day event, answering questions about the American Saddlebred. If you would like to volunteer, or have any other questions, please contact either Susan Vine at esvine@gmail.com or Mark Strong at mstrong59@att.net or 617-922-5501.
