Alan F. Balch, executive secretary/registrar, explained how the American Saddlebred Registry is involved in assisting the Kentucky State Fair in tabulating points for Western Country Pleasure qualifying in the 2006 section.


"Since the ASR and USEF both get results from USEF Licensed Competitions including Saddlebred classes, we advised the management of the Kentucky State Fair that we would assist them by verifying results and tabulating points according to the detailed system they provided to us.  What we're going to try to do is update the point standings on a weekly basis, if at all possible, depending on when we receive official results from the shows.


So far, we have received results from all USEF Licensed Competitions held in March, so they're ready for publication now.  We'll continually update this on our website and provide each new update to the Kentucky State Fair as well.  This will give everyone showing in the Western Country Pleasure classes the total picture as to where they stand, as often as possible."
