ASHBA National Select Series
ASHBA National Select Series presented by State Line Tack
This program has been developed through years of hard work and thoughtfulness from ASHBA’s Middle Market, Horse Show Task Force, and the new Saddlebreds Across America committees. Upon the 2021 merger of the American Saddlebred Horse Association (ASHA) and the American Saddlebred Registry (ASR) to form the American Saddlebred Horse and Breeders Association (ASHBA) the ASHBA National Select Series presented by State Line Tack’s will continue the mission to encourage more people to show American Saddlebreds, Hackney Ponies, and Roadsters to strengthen the show horse market by providing classes where horses of the same relative level can compete against one another.
The ASHBA has worked with the Saddlebreds Across America Committee to tailor the program to a better product for ASHBA members and bring more opportunities and value to the experience of showing at our breed shows. Some of the most prominent changes are an updated class list, a full slate of American Saddlebred classes for Amateur/Junior Exhibitors, strengthened regions, qualification requirements for the ASHBA National Select Series Regional Championships, and added classes and divisions.
The ASHBA is proud to welcome the American Hackney Horse Society and American Road Horse and Pony Association to our National Select Series program. Three additional classes have been added to the program for these horses, ponies, and exhibitors. Our industry is stronger together and we are thrilled that the ASHBA National Select Series can be a part of securing a better future for the sport we all love.
