RELEASE: March 6, 2008
AUTHOR/ADMINISTRATOR: By Jessica Fisher
The American Saddlebred Horse Association (ASHA) and Elisabeth Goth Chelberg are pleased to offer the ASHA Junior Exhibitor Driving Challenge program to promote the sport of driving American Saddlebreds for young enthusiasts.
The ASHA Junior Exhibitor Driving Challenge will consist of qualifying classes in two divisions—Junior Exhibitor Fine Harness and Junior Exhibitor Show Pleasure Driving—at selected shows throughout the year. Each show must offer both classes. Custom medals and ribbons will be provided by ASHA. By adding both driving classes to a show schedule, ASHA will be able to enhance promotional efforts for the Junior Exhibitor Driving Challenge through press releases and advertisements.
To be eligible for the $10,000 in cash and prizes offered, a horse must be a ribbon winner in two qualifying classes prior to the ASHA Driving Challenge Finals. A horse must qualify in two official Junior Exhibitor Fine Harness classes to qualify for the ASHA Junior Exhibitor Fine Harness Driving Challenge Final or two official Junior Exhibitor Show Pleasure Driving classes to qualify for the ASHA Junior Exhibitor Show Pleasure Driving Challenge Final.
