The American Saddlebred Horse Association (ASHA) has announced plans to add live streaming video of the Wisconsin Futurity Horse Festival to its schedule. The event will take place Wednesday, September 17, through Sunday, September 21, 2008, at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison, WI.
Subscription purchases for viewing the webcast will be available on the ASHA homepage at www.saddlebred.com
. Fees to view the webcast are $15 per day per computer, meaning the license to view the webcast is exclusive to each computer on which it is purchased. ASHA members receive a 20% discount for daily purchase, making the member price $12 per day per computer. In addition, a full-show five-day package purchase is available at the discounted rate of $68, or $54 for ASHA members: this discount will be applied when all days are selected at the payment screen. Payment is accepted online using a credit or debit card. Sign-ups for the webcast will be available on the days leading up to the event.
The competition at the Wisconsin Futurity Horse Festival is designated as a regional championship, which will include, among other events, ASHA National Pleasure Equitation Championship, and United Professional Horsemen's Association “Pink Ribbon” Class-Five-Gaited Ladies Championship, to promote the riding of show horses to help find a cure for breast cancer.
According to Technology Manager Will Wood, Jr., “In recent months, ASHA has provided an unprecedented and increasingly high volume of internet coverage for Saddlebred events, in the form of our webcasts.”
In addition to the aforementioned events, Wood said that in July of this year, ASHA provided webcasts for the Junior League Horse Show in Lexington, KY, and has already begun planning to provide similar coverage for events later this year.
The Wisconsin Futurity Horse Festival has been added to a list of events already slated by ASHA for internet coverage, including the All American Horse Classic, which is to be held at the Indiana State Fairgrounds in Indianapolis, IN, Tuesday, September 2, through Saturday, September 6, 2008. For the All American Horse Classic webcast, all aforementioned subscription cost and payment method details apply.
Sign-ups are now underway at www.saddlebred.com
for the American Saddlebred Horse Association’s live video streaming internet webcast of the All American Horse Classic, which had its first performance Tuesday evening, September 2. Opening Night featured the rich All American Weanling Cup.
The lucrative American Saddlebred Registry Sweepstakes events begin Thursday evening, September 4, for two-year-olds in fine harness, park pleasure, five-gaited, and three-gaited. The four-year-old sweepstakes in the same sections is slated for Friday evening, September 5, and for three-year-olds on Saturday evening, September 6.
