PARTNERS FOR THE RIDE

ASHA Saddle Time

ASHA Saddle Time

This is an incentive-based program that rewards youth with gifts and recognition for spending quality hours in the saddle.

How it works

Participants keep track of the time they spend riding. Owning a horse is not a requirement to participate. Special Saddle Time awards will be given when you complete various hour levels. Hours count in the following activities: trail riding, lessons, parades, drill team and non-USEF recognized events and shows (a 4-H show is a good example).

Saddle Time Rules

  • Must be a current and active member of ASHA.
  • Levels one through three do not have to be accumulated on American Saddlebreds.
  • Levels four through six must be earned on registered American Saddlebreds.
  • Time recorded begins upon ASHA's receipt of enrollment fee. There is no time limit as long as membership stays active.
  • Hours are recorded on the official hours log report by the honor system.
  • Hours required for each award are cumulative.
  • Ownership of horse is not required.
  • Hours will count in the following activities: trail riding, lessons, parades, drill teams and non-recognized events/shows.
  • Hours will not count in the following activities: USEF recognized events/shows, competitive trail rides, endurance rides, driving, grooming and hot walking.
