Academy Guidelines

These updated guidelines provide standardization of this growing and important division for show organizers, judges, officials, instructors, and trainers to refer to help maintain a level playing field, consistent judging, and encourage more riding programs at our breed stables. The Academy Guidelines are available to review here.

This publication is intended to be a source of information for those responsible for organizing horse shows; for judges and other horse show officials, and for instructors and trainers. The American Saddlebred Horse and Breeders Association recognizes the need for:

  • providing standardized guidelines for the academy division,
  • promoting a level playing field
  • helping judges understand academy criteria
  • encouraging lesson programs at more stables

 The Academy Program is all-inclusive allowing beginners to advanced students a way in which to participate. The academy program also provides an important niche for many horses that need a job that can be put to good use as suitable lesson horses.
