Saddlebred World Loses Bob Davis, Joanne Pembroke, and Don Reinhart Bob Davis Robert Halley Davis Jr., 74, of Clark County, Kentucky, retired Hinkle Contracting customer service representative, passed away on Monday, April 23, 2012. Bob Davis was a longtime breeder, trainer, and supporter of the American Saddlebred breed, as well as the manager of the Bourbon County Horse Show. Son of Robert Halley and Ruth J. Davis. Bob is survived by a son, Brian P. (Mary) Davis, Charlestown, Indiana; a very special friend, Therese R. Colgan, Florence, Kentucky; eight grandchildren; and four great grandchildren. Joanne Pembroke Joanne L. Pembroke, 71, of Jefferson, Wisconsin, formerly of Milton, Wisconsin, passed away on Friday, April 13, 2012, at Fort Atkinson Memorial Hospital. Joanne was born on July 23, 1940, daughter of the late David R. and Sylvia (Pearson) Fyfe. Joanne was employed for over 20 years in the Milton School District, as the Librarian at both Milton East and West Elementary Schools. Those who knew Joanne well, or even slightly made her acquaintance, quickly came to realize that her true calling and passion in life was that of a Saddle Seat equine riding instructor, expertly and patiently teaching children and adults of all ages to appreciate the fine art of horsemanship and exhibiting in competitions. There was nothing she relished more or would rather have done than share her enthusiasm for her beloved horses with others. She was the epitome of a riding instructor, one learned to care for the horse before they ever mounted, and once they were done riding they cared for the horse before themselves. She was both patient and demanding and cared deeply about her beloved Saddlebreds. She was also a founder of the Illinois American Saddlebred Pleasure Horse Association. Unfortunately, injuries sustained in a tragic car accident in March 2006 abruptly ended her 45-year labor of love of passionately sharing her expertise and joy for horses with all. Joanne will be deeply missed by her son, James and his wife, Tina Pembroke of Texas, as well as her two grandchildren; Jessica Pembroke, a Dean’s list Junior at The University of Texas and Chase Pembroke, a Senior in High School, and a member of the National Honor Society and a commended National Merit Scholar. Don Reinhart Donald W. Reinhart, Sr. of Grove City, Ohio, died on Saturday April 14, 2012. Born on April 9, 1922, one of Don’s goals was to “achieve 90 years” and this he accomplished - in the way that he most wanted, surrounded by his loving family and close friends. Influenced by his father who was a blacksmith, Don’s interest and passion for horses began at a very early age and spanned a lifetime

- training and riding horses well into his eighth decade. Don trained, showed, and judged American Saddlebreds all his life, producing and selling many champions during his career. Among some of the notables he trained were: WC Belle Reve’s Renaissance Man (Donna Moore), CHSusie Sunshine (Mrs. Griffon), Radiant Decision and Really Mine (Don Harris), Happy Jack (Helen Crabtree), Happy Tu (Jim B. Robertson), Captain Tango and CHStonewall Parfait (Art Simmons), RWC Enchanted Hour (Jean Davis), WC Bethany Belle (Chester Cauldwell), WC Meadow March (Townsend Industry), Commander’s Fair Lady (Ed Teater), Miss Albany (Cooks), RWC Deja Vu’s Delight, and WC Radiante. For many years, Don Reinhart Stables was a fixture at the Ohio State Fairgrounds. During his career, he apprenticed with Frank Bradshaw and then went on to train at Joanna Lee Farms, Bellefontaine, Ohio, Countryside Horse Farm, Ashland, Ohio, Emerald Farms (A.E. Knowlton), Delaware, Ohio, Reinhart Stables with Steve Demjen (Carol & Fred Rieser), Don-A-Del Farms (Becky Donavan), Delaware, Ohio, Sunset Farm (Pam and Dave Boyers), Plain City, Ohio, and Lost Tree Farm (Sue and Gary Cook), Hilliard, Ohio. In 1999, Don was listed in “Who’s Who in Horsedom”; named Horseman of the Year; and inducted into the Professional Horseman’s Hall of Fame. In 2002, at his 80th birthday celebration at Sunset Farm, a number of his friends placed an engraved tile with his name in the “Walk of Honor” at the American Saddlebred Museum, in the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington. Don was the “consummate horseman” and really loved all his horses, bringing out the best in each of them. He loved a gaited horse, winning the Stake in his 80s at River Ridge, the Ohio State Fair, and Dayton Horse Show with Miss Angel Wings. He was fanatical about the daily care of horses – especially making sure they always had fresh, clean water and thorough grooming. His care and training methods always ensured soft mouths and magnificent tails. Don was very outgoing and wherever he went he made friends. His friends will always remember his effervescent spirit and some of the Reinhart sayings, including “Jeepers!” and “Lookee Here!” when he spotted talent in one of the young horses. Don was also proud of his service to our country, having served in the US Navy on USS Ashland during World War II. A devoted family man, Don was preceded in death by his parents, Harve M. and Marie B. Reinhart, and his only brother, Wilbur. He is survived by his wife of 66 years, Mary Naomi; four children Dixie (Dave) Fulton, Debra (Gary) Haughn of Grove City; Don Jr. (Tina) Reinhart of Ft. Wayne, Ind., and Dan (Debbie) Reinhart of Grove City. He was known as “Dedad” and adored by his grandchildren Jamie Haughn, Alexa Eyan Sines of Grove City; Brian, Donnie III and Whitney Reinhart of Ft. Wayne; Cristie Fulton, of Columbus; Angie (Ron) Helm, Clermont, Florida; and Mandi Uhl of Portsmouth; great grandchildren Rylie, Mariah, Karsen, Konnor, Sofia Mia, Sidney and Ronnie; sister-in-law Betty Reinhart of Daytona Beach, and numerous nieces and nephews.

CHAPTER 8 A NEW HOME FOR UPHA CHAPTER 8 Murfreesboro, TN-The 6th Annual UPHA Chapter 8 Horse Show began 2012 on a new date and at a new facility. According to spokespersons for the show they felt they had grown to capacity at the former location in Cleveland, TN and a move was essential for the show to accommodate the growth. The new facility is housed in Murfreesboro at the Tennessee Miller Coliseum(also home to the National Academy Championship Finals). This facility offers 500 permanent stalls, and indoor warm-up area and a state-of-the-art climate controlled coliseum. The show schedule remained the same over the course of the show. One new feature was the addition of the Southern Saddlebred Sales venue. This new auction was held on Friday and dispersed 100 horses to bidders. It is the hope of the UPHA Chapter 8 committee to continue to offer affordable horse shows in a fun relaxed environment. This year proved very exciting as many riders chose to make their debuts with new horses at this show and many trainers brought young horses for their first introduction to the show ring. Though numbers were light in some classes there was strong overall competition and talent throughout the show.

All American Cup Creates “Marriage” With The Sport Horse--World Wide During the ASHA annual convention Jim Aikman sat in on a round table presentation for the sport horse. He listened with an open mind, watched and learned. It became apparent that the sport horse had great talent and aptitude. Many sport horse “stars” were reg American Saddlebreds going over hill and dale, over jumps , and pulling carriages through water. Jim thought there were many stallions who could also produce winners in the All American Cup if afforded the opportunity. No place has it been written that the produce by these stallions could not win the world record purses awarded by the AAC. Jim wanted to meet these dedicated friends of the Saddlebred and help them with more opportunities.

The bonding and endorsement of the aac and the sport horse is a major move in the horse world.. Marketing opportunities will increase dramatically. Pledges by those who “believe” are solicited. Please contact jim aikman with your pledge, interest, and questions 1-317-862-4341 or all americancup@yahoo. com

The UPHA Chapter 14 Spring Premier is Truly a “Premier� Show W.SPRINGFIELD, MA.-The UPHA-14 once again set the standards and opened 2012 with record numbers in organizing a premiere horse show. This show was held on April 19th-21 at the famed Eastern States Exposition Fairgrounds. The UPHA Chapter 14 Spring Premier continued its tradition of excellence and hospitality this year and will definitely be at the top of the list for exhibitors and trainers in 2013.

UPHA Chapter 14 Spring Premier

Chapter 14 - Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island, Vermont, Canada About this Chapter: UPHA 14 is one of the largest and most active UPHA chapters in the country. Made up of Saddlebred, Morgan, Hackney Pony, and Friesian lovers from Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Vermont, New York, and Canada, UPHA 14 covers the Northeast corner of the United States. Over the years, Chapter 14 has made a name for itself as a group of horse people who set standards for their peers. Former Chapter Chairman, Gary Garone, began the Chapter’s movement years ago and the group has only gained momentum. Garone recently stepped down from his position as Chapter Chairman and now serves the National UPHA as the Second Vice President of the Board of Directors. The Chapter is currently led by Kristen Cater of Dunbarton, New Hampshire. UPHA Chapter 14 is unique in many ways. Perhaps the most apparent is the foundation built of strong and varied horse people in this area. Not only are the Saddlebred professionals involved in the day to day running of the Chapter; but also Morgan, Hackney

Pony, and Friesian professionals serve their peers as Officers and Committee members. With such diversity in the Chapter, UPHA activities are a part of many different shows all over the Chapter. Another quality responsible for the consistent success of Chapter 14 is the ongoing inclusion of and reliance upon active and energetic amateur members. Regular Chapter meetings are held throughout the year and sitting and working side by side with the Chapter’s professionals are the individuals who enjoy the horses and ponies from a non-professional standpoint. But their involvement does not end with their attendance at the meetings; they serve as Committee Chairs and members, working for fellow horseman, both professionals and amateurs alike. Between its diverse group of professionals and very active amateur members of UPHA, UPHA 14 stays at the forefront of the National UPHA and continues to set standards for fellow Chapters across the country.

How a Husband Can Please His Wife By Donna Nabors How many women have a husband who says to them “Honey, why don’t you go out and buy a horse to make yourself feel better?” After we are revived at the hospital from the shock, we realize that it was just a dream. But for a young, second-time mother who was dealing with all the ups and downs of trying to raise a three year old toddler and a newborn, Brian Whitfield did exactly that to his wife, Beth. Beth already knew her lucky stars had aligned perfectly when she moved from Maine to Ft. Myers, Florida and met Brian, and she was truly blessed when daughter number one, Hannah, arrived a few years later. But after the birth of Kyndal, daughter number two, the everyday routine became more stressful, as anybody who has ever had two children at the same time under the age of three knows what life can be like. Brian knew the way to his

wife’s heart, and it wasn’t with chocolates or flowers. After moving to Lexington, Kentucky, Beth started taking riding lessons with Lindsay Hunter in Nicholasville, and in 1995 she purchased a three year old broodmare in foal to The Maniplulator. The pleasure mare, London, eventually took Beth on trail rides and brought out a deep appreciation for the Saddlebred breed. Brian had started a company called Bluegrass Dent Repair that would prove to provide his wife and family with some noteworthy Saddlebred show horses over their twenty-one years of marriage. In 1998 the Whitfield family bought a 10 acre parcel off Huntertown Road in Versailles, built a house and barn with an indoor arena. Beth continued her love of horses by adding to her herd periodically. In addition to her Saddlebreds, she found enjoyment owning Arabs and Half-Arabs. Over the years Hannah and Kyndal showed in a variety of classes, from model and country pleasure to show pleasure and hunter. But even during her years supporting her daughters in the show ring, Beth preferred to concentrate on the breeding side of horse ownership. Purchasing the breeding stallion Santana Safari allowed her to build a noteworthy breeding program that provided many years of vicarious living through his successful get.


How a Husband Can Please His Wife Today Beth has a couple of nice youngsters she’s working in her arena, and another promising show prospect is with Dena Lopez. Being in the O/T/R classes is especially interesting to Beth and she plans to participate in as many classes as she can with her charges, supporting KASPA and SAHIBA shows in the Bluegrass area. Staying busy keeping stalls clean and the paddocks in good shape for her boarders doesn’t afford her much leisure time, but when she is finished with her chores, Beth has other activities that have her attention. The Whitfield family’s activities surrounding Southland Christian Church means a lot to Beth, and participating in a 5K run in 2011 has sparked an interest in making another run in the near future. Always aware of the many blessings that have come her way, Beth Whitfield will always have her faith, her family, her horses and her friends to keep her life the way she wants it.

A Study in Versatility, Both Horse and Human

By Donna Nabors If you talk to 10 different Saddlebred lovers and ask them how they started out with the breed, you’ll probably have 9 similar stories. But that 10th person would have life experiences different from the majority. This 10th person’s story could be that of Darryl Leifheit DeKalb County, Illinois is the typical example of Midwest dairy cattle country. Generations of the Leifheit family called the livestock, grain and dairy farm home, and Darryl’s grandfather and great-grandfather also raised Percheron horses on their property. From the late 1930’s to the early 1950’s the family farm was void of horses of any kind, then a few ponies, and then some Saddlebreds took up residence. Learning as much as he could on his own, Darryl became experienced enough to land a job with a Saddlebred show barn near Aurora, Illinois after graduating from high school. Upon obtaining an degree in Biological Science from Northern Illinois University in 1975, Darryl accepted a sales position with the IBM Corporation of Rockford. In between his job and family responsibilities, Darryl found himself supplying ground help to his first wife as she showed Saddlebreds under the banner of their Leather Ridge Farm. The Illinois American Saddlebred Pleasure Horse Association was formed with Darryl’s help, and he used his sense of humor to write a column, “The Last Straw” for the organization’s newsletter. Even though Darryl was enjoying a successful career with IBM, when the opportunity to take a management position with a new start-up company in Austin, Texas came along, he didn’t hesitate to make the move. He worked harder at the new job than he thought possible, long hours on the road, long hours away from

his second wife Janeene, and long hours away from his Saddlebreds and Knight Skye Farm. When time did permit, Darryl found enjoyment competing in three gaited and five gaited classes. But it all paid off when Dell computers became a household staple, and Darryl retired from the technology world with a desire to concentrate on his first choice: Saddlebreds. During one of Darryl and Janeene’s many trips to the Bluegrass State, Darryl decided to employ the services of a local real estate agent. In 2001, the agent found the Leifheit’s a 13 acre farm just 4 miles from the Horse Park near Lexington. A year later, Knight Skye Farm relocated to the heart of Saddlebred country and Darryl began another journey that found him repurposing his five gaited show horse Singsation into a competitive Combined Driver contender. Darryl joined with Sterling Graburn to promote the versatility of American Saddlebreds and has been introducing more and more Saddlebred enthusiasts to this exciting sport. Singsation (aka Clint) was working his way up the ladder to become a serious threat in the driving circuit when a recent injury has sidelined him temporarily. Clint’s half-brother, Trooper, is now being groomed as an up-and-coming competitive driving prospect under Sterling’s tutelage. To say that Darryl Leifheit’s is enamored with his life, his horses and his lot in life would be an understatement. He’s shared his life with Saddlebreds as working western horses, western gaming competitors, saddleseat three gaited, five gaited and fine harness show horses, dressage, combined driving, cross country eventing and jumpers. He’s had successful careers in sales and marketing, public speaking and business management. With his wife sharing his love for horses, and especially their American Saddlebreds and promising careers in a different sport, it’s only a matter of time until Darryl is very successful in his latest life venture.

2012 Spring Classic

at the Kentucky Horse Park

By Donna Nabors The 2012 Spring Classic Horse Show at the Kentucky Horse Park is one of the sure signs that horse show season is on its way. Although not quite as well attended as the previous year, there were still approximately 250 horses participating in the usual variety of classes. The weather could not have been better for this springtime debut of so many talented horses, riders and drivers. Again opting for a 2:00 start time, the competition was usually over around dinnertime during the three day event, and that was a big plus for participants who were eager to find a good place to dine in the Lexington area. Some visitors from eastern Tennessee were making a beeline to the Columbia Steak House as soon as Friday’s classes wrapped up, vowing to try Malone’s the following night. While the Pleasure classes ruled with the most participants, there was still good participation in the Park division and the driving classes. Perhaps due to the sudden increase in gas prices, or maybe scheduling conflicts with other shows, many of the usual faces that come to Kentucky in early April were not present. There was a noticeable drop in the number of Academy-type participants. A.J. Bruwer shared the honor of having the most entries of the show with 21, and his client Vicky Reed made up 15 of those. Tammy DeVore also had 21 entries from her stable and all of them placed in their respective classes. Kris Knight, Melissa Moore and James Nichols all had 17 entries, John Biggins and

Page 34

Dena Lopez signed in 15 entries each, Kristen Bagdasarian had 11 and Lisa Bible 10. Even the trainers who had just a few horses participating did well for themselves. Wes and Sena Bowling had two first place finishes and two reserves; Robert Byers did the sam. Maureen Campbell had three first place ribbons for her clients to take home. John Conaster’s representatives took three blue ribbons and two red ribbons for his barn. Redd Crabtree won a class and Michelle Hale left the show with a first place ribbon. Sammi Hazen had two firsts and a second for her efforts. Susan Hoskins won a blue ribbon. Brent Jacobs collected two blue ribbons and one red ribbon, while Julie Kaufman’s client won a blue ribbon. Tre Lee had a blue ribbon winner from his barn and Michelle Legrottte-Barcus’s ponies took five blue ribbons and one red ribbon back home. Jeff McClean had a first and second place ribbon for Golden Creek Farm. Merrill Murray took the gaited stake class. Chris Riser’s client placed first in two classes while Jim Robertson trained winners in four classes and one reserve winner. Gerhardt Roos coached his client to three blue ribbons. Stephanie Sedlacko’s client added two more blue ribbons to her credit. Kathleen Sullivan coached a first place winner. Martin Teater collected a blue ribbon and Todd Walker was a first place finisher.

All-in-all, with perfect weather, good company and talented competitors, the 2012 Spring Classic is another one for the record books and another successful event for the coordinators.

Feathered Horse Classic Brings By Kelley Reason Shelbyville, TN-Through time horses have always held a mystical quality for many people. But for some there are some special breeds of horses that are deemed “mystical” and “romantic”-the Friesians and the Gypsy Vanners. For three days in April(13-15) these beautiful horses reigned over the Calsonic Arena in Shelbyville, TN at the Third Annual Feathered Horse Classic Spring Show. Expertly managed by Gail Shrine this show continued to show growing numbers in attendance drawing horses and exhibitors from New Hampshire to Florida. Recently, a gypsy cob organization was officially established and for the first time, they will be able to compete for a world grand championship. There are now true divisional and regional competitions. Because of that many farms decided to come all the way to Shelbyville for the Feathered Horse Classic – some over 1,000 miles. In addition, an array of classes was offered to accommodate youth riders, amateurs, and trainers for Friesians and Gypsy Vanners. Several classes proved very popular with the onlookers including the Costume Class. Horses and Riders were required to dress and perform in period costumes. Another class that had great crowd appeal was the Liberty Class. Each horse was released by his/her handler and allowed to move freely around the arena. To compliment the horse’s movement the handler preselected music to play during this free-style demonstration. The Liberty Class is a timed event and when time is called the handler must be able to retrieve his horse within a set time limit. Most of the horses in the liberty classes were natural performers-prancing and tossing their manes at the crowd with a resounding snort. This class gives spectators an opportunity to see these beautiful horses moving freely and it was truly a sight to behold. There were also many other events planned for spectators and exhibitors including a barefoot and bitless performance by Ivory Pal -the Famous Walking Horse who gives musical freestyle performances, an ice cream social, a silent auction, and a delicious buffet dinner . .

A New Beginning

When asked if he had a special connection to the “Man Upstairs” who saw fit to allow Sunday, April 15th to be such a beautiful day for a horse auction in the Bluegrass state, Jimmy Robertson quipped “I sure do, my daddy”. It’s quite obvious that Jimmy’s dad holds an important place in his son’s heart, and even the announcers at the 2012 Spring Sale arranged by Robertson Equine Sales, LLC saw fit to give a tribute to the late, great J.B. Robertson. With the popular and well-attended tack sale running over its allotted time, the first horse marched down the green-draped aisle at approximately 10:45 AM to an enthusiastic crowd. The sale was conducted in the spacious barn at the Shelbyville Fair Grounds that offers a generously wide area for workout during regular horse shows. Jimmy’s crews had roped off a portion of the center of this barn for the horses to show their stuff, while allowing ample room for hundreds chairs and a few large round tables. Cattlemen’s Roadhouse was chosen to provide a variety of food and drink choices for participants and guests alike. Large screen TV monitors placed in strategic places allowed the crowd to know which horse was up for bid and what the final bid was. With approximately 20 horses finding new homes before the sale started, auctioneers Tom Biederman and Jim Price still kept the remaining offerings moving through the sale at a brisk pace. Buddy Waggoner had the thankless task of keeping the right horse standing by in the warm-up area a short distance from the sale barn, and it wasn’t long before he removed his suit coat and donned a pink baseball cap to combat the rising temperatures as the cool morning turned into a very warm, breezy afternoon. Many of the attendees at the sale were in town for the Spring Classic Horse Show at the Kentucky Horse Park. For some it was their first experience at a horse auction, but for others it was a familiar atmosphere, albeit an unfamiliar venue for the auction traditionally held at Tattersalls near downtown Lexington. Many people lamented the loss of their old stomping grounds and the memories that facility held for them, both good and bad. So many stories and experiences had been shared at the South Broadway facility, but everyone was optimistic that this day could be the start of many new experiences to be fondly recalled in the years to come. People spoke of the many famous horses that changed hands at a Tattersalls sale, horses that went on to become a World Champion with different trainers and/or riders. They spoke of tried and true show horses that became new mounts for children and junior riders needing a seasoned campaigner to give them their blue ribbons. Even humorous stories of the wrong horse being taken by mistake to a farm where they were not intended to go, horses so unruly that it took many passers-by to help load it in a trailer, or people looking for a way home for a new horse after making an impulse buy. Some people bragged about that “diamond in the rough” they were lucky enough to find at Tattersalls, and others lamented over a dispersal sale that they didn’t want to see happen. Although those days are gone now, April 15, 2012 could be a day that goes down in history for the Saddlebred community. Jimmy Robertson is forging ahead with hopes to bring to life new memories, new stories and new hopes and dreams for Saddlebred lovers who will, forever and a day, find enjoyment and purpose in owning, riding or training the “peacocks of the horse show world”.

2011 American Saddlebred Registry Sport Horse & Pleasure Horse Year End Award Winners By Donna Nabors Beginning in 2011, the ASHA High Points Program was initiated to recognize the achievements of all horses registered with the American Saddlebred Registry. These horses compete in all disciplines at all levels, and their successes culminate at the High Points Award luncheon during the February convention at the Marriott Griffin Gate Resort & Spa.

Comprised of both Saddlebreds and Half Saddlebreds, competitions consist of a wide range of categories and disciplines, not only in the traditional classes, but in open breed venues as well. High Point Champion honors in each category are given to the highest placing qualified horse owned by an active ASHA member. The top horses from ten regions, Europe and overall national winners bring a new perspective to horse lovers who are not accustomed to seeing the “peacock of the show ring” show their versatility in a different setting. Every horse that accumulates results to the ASHA database is automatically eligible for consideration of a High Point Award, a feature that makes it very easy for horse owners to participate. It’s very obvious that the Charter Club Council, comprised of volunteers from across the country who represent a broad spectrum of equestrian disciplines, have a well thought-out program to promote the American Saddlebred. The following is a list of the honorees for 2011: Dressage Division (Training Level) – Pratense’s Rejoice, Champion: 64.39%. Owner: Paula Jo Briney, Chatham, Il. New Yorker’s Class Act, Reserve Champion: 63.99%. Owner: Robert & Barbara Walla, Ocala, Fl. Outside The Line, Third Place: 59.82%. Owner: Kimberly & Derrick More, Van Meter, Ia.

words as he expressed his gratitude accepting the International Award for his work promoting Saddlebreds in his native country. The Paul Briney family packed the stage to give a short and sweet expression of their family’s appreciation for receiving the Paul and Dorothy Gillenwater Family Award. A familiar face in the winner’s circle, the unassuming Merrill Murray collected yet another World Championship ring for his collection, a fact the good-natured host made sure the guests were aware of. Ronald Merwin brought his humorous anctidotes to the podium as he was presented with the Wing Commander Metal award, and the Lifetime Achievement Award recipient, Dick Boettcher brought the crowd to their feet again, a sign of well-deserved respect for someone who has made a lifetime commitment to the American Saddlebred. To no one’s surprise, CH The Daily Lottery was selected as the 2011 ASHA Horse of the Year. His breeder is Penny Lane Farm, Inc., his owner is High Hickory Farm and his rider has been Gabe Deknatel. The videos of this outstanding champion gelding were impressive to see on the big screens in the ballroom and there’s no doubt he was a logical choice. Saddlebred Gala The grand finale of the 2012 ASHA Convention was a grand affair indeed. The large ballroom at the Mariott Griffin Gate Resort & Spa was practically a sellout, and all the pretty ladies and handsome gentlemen enjoyed themselves immensely. The band provided appealing entertainment for guests during and after dinner and there were only empty plates when it was time for the hotel staff to clear tables. Walt Robertson handled his Master of Ceremonies duties with utmost finesse, from conducting the auction to the introduction of the evening’s honorees. The program had periods of excitement when auction items brought hundreds, even thousands of dollars for the cause. With a friendly rivalry going on for many of the donations, a final bid approaching $10,000 won the week In Mexico. Also in the program were moments of obvious heartfelt emotions when some award recipients shared their deep sentiments with fellow Saddlebred lovers. The family of Rob Wilson, receiving the C.J. Cronan Sportsmanship Award on his behalf, as well as Elisabeth Goth, 2011 Breeder of the Year, held attendees entranced as each shared special thoughts during their acceptance speeches. Standing ovations were given to Jimmy Robertson, Meritorious Service Award winner, and Breeders Hall of Fame stalwart Jim Stewart, with Suzanne Bradshaw capturing the hearts of the crowd as she made her way to the podium to accept the Lurline Roth Sportsmanship Award. Frank Ogletree Youth Award winner Drew Taylor Hewitt offered an impressive acceptance speech, a young lady wise beyond her years. Gordon Jenkins didn’t mince

The History of ASHAVThe American Saddle Horse Association of Virginia (Compliments of ASHAV) With the encouragement of Dr. Arden Huff of VPI & SU, an ad hoc committee was formed to discuss the formation of a breed organization in Virginia for the American Saddlebred Horse. The committee’s efforts culminated in a meeting in Roanoke on March 22, 1975, attended by more than one hundred Saddlebred enthusiasts. A charter group of 91 members voted for the establishment of the American Saddlebred Horse Association of Virginia (ASHAV), and elected officers and a board of directors. At the first board meeting on April 6, 1975, committees were established to write bylaws and begin the formation of the organization. Major highlights of AHSHAV’s formative years: • In 1975 the ASHAV Youth Committee was formed. Saddlebreds were recruited for the Virginia 4-H judging contest, and a 4-H Saddle Horse Club was sponsored in the Roanoke area. Annually a Youth Sportsmanship Award winner is selected from among youth members nominated. • In 1976 the “Heads Up Virginia!” newsletter was formed. • In 1976 the first annual general membership meeting was held. Through 1980 the single day meeting included an educational clinic / seminar, membership business meeting, awards dinner, auction fund raiser and social / dance. In 1981 the meeting was expanded to a 2 day convention to accommodate growth in the High Points Awards program. — A Service Award is given annually to an outstanding member. — A Youth Sportsmanship Award is given annually. — The High Points program began in 1978 to encourage participation in horse shows with classes for Saddlebreds. The initial 6 show divisions have expanded to 42 as the program has grown. — In 1990 the Hall of Fame was established to recognize individuals who have played significant roles in the Saddlebred industry in Virginia. A plaque with the names of honorees is displayed in Anderson Coliseum at the Virginia Horse Center in Lexington. • A Futurity Committee was formed in 1976 to promote American Saddlebred breeding. At the Roanoke Valley Horse Show in 1977 the first ASHAV futurity classes were held. Two divisions were created. Classes in the Old Dominion division were open to horses with owners living in Virginia, and classes in the Open division were open to horses with owners living outside Virginia. In 1990 the ASHAV futurity classes were moved to the ASHAV Horse Show held at the Virginia Horse Center. • In 1979 the Board authorized directors from each zone to select horse shows with classes for Saddlebreds for financial support from ASHAV, initially through advertisements and later through class sponsorships. • On August 31 and September 1, 1984, the first ASHAV Horse Show was held at the Hill & Dale Stock Farm in Chatham, Va. The Show offered trophies and a $10,000 prize list for about 50 classes, primarily for Saddlebreds but with some Morgan and Western classes to attract local exhibitors. One Saddlebred / Morgan judge and one Western judge tied the classes. In 1988 the ASHAV Horse Show moved to the Virginia Horse Center, and was expanded from two to three days. Subsequently ASHAV futurity and Grand National classes were added to the show. In 1992 the show moved indoors to the new Anderson Coliseum, and in 1994 the show expanded to four days and added a panel of three judges. For 2004 the show will have 116 classes, and 12 academy classes will be added. Awards won by the ASHAV Horse Show include the prestigious UPHA National Honor Show in 1994 and 1995, and show managers won the UPHA Herman R. Miles Award in 1996.
