ASHBA at Equine Affaire
Equine Affaire is the largest horse-related trade show in America, attracting over 60,000 horse enthusiasts to Columbus, Ohio on April 13-16.
American Saddlebreds were represented in breed demonstrations and the breed pavilion, where visitors met American Saddlebreds and learned more about the breed.
A special thank you to Blair Cecil and Phoenix Farm for bringing horses to the event.
ASHBA joined the American Saddlebred Ambassadors from Phoenix Farm at the 2023 Equine Affaire. Posters, stickers, and brochures were available to all Equine Affaire attendees. As attendees stopped by the ASHBA booth, they were also able to give treats, take pictures and spend time with the American Saddlebred ambassadors, who loved the attention. ASHBA Staff was onsite to answer questions about the association and the American Saddlebred.
Equine Affaire Attendees were also welcomed back at the stalls to meet the ambassadors not at the ASHBA Booth.
