ASHA Youth Photo Contest

SHA also recognizes the artistic side of our junior members through our annual ASHA Youth Photo Contest. Photographs of a living American Saddlebred horse are to be taken by an ASHA junior member. (Sorry, no model horses!) You may submit as many photographs as you like, and awards are given in two age divisions, 13 & under and 14-20.  So, ready, get set, shoot! Send in your photo before November 30. Contact Brenda Newell for your entry form by e-mailing
