Behind the Saddlebred Scenes Horse Show Spotlight: UPHA Bonnie Blue National
Published Date: Jun 22, 2020
This past #SaddlebredSaturday the ASHA took a virtual visit to the 2020 UPHA Bonnie Blue National Horse Show. Bonnie Blue took over the ASHA Instagram for the day with the help of Ashley Russo and gave us a Behind the Saddlebred Scenes perspective of planning, attending, and enjoying a horse show with COVID-19 protocols in 2020! We thank Virginia Horse Center CEO John Nicholson and Vice President Kenny Wheeler for giving us their time and sharing their experience making Bonnie Blue National happen this year. We enjoyed hearing how this USEF Licensed competition through careful planning and great exhibitor support was bigger than ever and better than ever!
Record attendence, rigorous state and venue COVID-19 protocols, and endless reviews from exhibitors that the competition, sportsmanship, and commraderee was exceptional. We are proud to see that ASHA competitions and members can stay #SaddlebredStrong during these unprecedented times and chase their joy for the love of the horse and enjoyment of our breed community. ASHA looks forward to seeing more Saddlebred Smiles as the re-opening of show season continues next week!
