With the competition season drawing to a close, the deadline to submit nominations for the American Saddlebred Horse Association’s (ASHA) individual awards are no later than the close of business Friday, October 30, 2009.
Each year, the Association’s highest honors are presented at the annual Saddlebred Ball, held in conjunction with the ASHA Annual Convention and Youth Conference. This year both the Annual Meeting and the Saddlebred Ball will once again be held at the Griffin Gate Marriott Resort in Lexington, KY, beginning Thursday, February 18, through Saturday, February 20, 2010. The Saddlebred Ball is set for that Saturday evening.
All of the awards—Lifetime Achievement, Meritorious Service, Breeders Hall of Fame, Breeder of the Year, C.J. Cronan and Lurline Roth Sportsmanship Awards, Frank Ogletree Youth Award, Gordon Jenkins International Award, Gillenwater Family Trophy and the Wing Commander Medal—are explained in detail on ASHA's website, at www.saddlebred.com/ASHA-Awards
