ASHA High Point Awards Program

  ASHA High Point Awards Program

The ASHA High Point Awards Program was initiated in 2011 after considerable thought and effort by the Charter Club Council, comprised of volunteers from across the country who represent a broad spectrum of equestrian disciplines.

 

The High Point Awards Program recognizes competition achievement by registered American Saddlebreds and Half-Saddlebreds in a wide range of categories and disciplines, at all levels, not only in the “traditional” Saddlebred show ring, but also in open breed competition (such as open English pleasure, etc.) and sport horse disciplines. The two highest placing horses owned by active ASHA members in each category are named High Point Champion and Reserve Champion. The program also awards High Point winners in ten regions and Europe. The specific categories awarded in each region vary depending on regional availability and participation.

 

The program year runs from December 1 to November 30.

 

Competitions are segregated into three categories based on length (1-day, 2-day, 3-day or longer) with points assigned on a sliding scale (e.g. there is a multiplier for points from 2-day and 3-day competitions). Scoring is done separately for sport horse disciplines.

 

There is no enrollment required for the program. Every horse that has competition results entered into the ASHA database (or submitted separately to the ASHA) is automatically eligible for consideration as long as its owner is an active ASHA member.

 

The full rules and program guidelines are linked below. Questions about the High Point Awards Program should be directed to Susan Harris at s.harris@asha.net or Brenda Newell at b.newell@asha.net.

2014 High Point Standings - Note:  These standings include results for all registered American Saddlebreds in the Registry database that are competing during the current program year.  The standings update each night as new show results are posted. Remember that horse owners and equitation riders must be active ASHA members in order to be eligible for High Point awards at the end of the year. Eligibility also requires a minimum of three different competitions within a region in order to be named regional High Point winner.  Thus the horses with the most points may not necessarily be named the winners.

 


2014 High Point standings for Canadian-registered horses, sport horses, and Half-Saddlebreds will be posted later in the year.
