ASHA/ UPHA to Present "First Timer" Ribbons at the 2012 World's Championship Horse Show
Lexington, Kentucky - Thanks to the initiative of American Saddlebred Horse Association (ASHA) Board Member, Randy Cates, and the generous sponsorship from World Champion Horse Equipment, ASHA and the United Professional Horsemen's Association (UPHA) will be presenting inaugural ribbons to every "first timer" trainer and exhibitor at this year's 2012 World's Championship Horse Show.
The inaugural year ribbon is a way to recognize those trainers and exhibitors who are joining us at Louisville for the first time. It has nothing to do with experience, we all know people ride for years often times before they show at Louisville. By hanging these ribbons it will also recognize those stables who are bringing new people to the show and into our business. A first time trainer is an individual who is signing the entry blank as trainer for the first time. An exhibitor is anyone showing in the ring for their first time or for their first time in the last 20 years either under saddle, driving, or in hand.
"We at the ASHA and UPHA are thankful for all our exhibitors and trainers. We also recognize how daunting the first year for a trainer or exhibitor can be. We are very glad they are here and want them to know!" said ASHA Board Member, Randy Cates. There will be a form at the World's Championship Horse Show office for first timer trainers and exhibitors to complete to be eligible.
