Hello Shagya Friends,
As summer is upon us this is the fun time for enjoying our horses! There are distances to ride as the miles flyby. Members have been sending us their endurance and trail photos this summer. We will print them in the next newsletter along with a reprint of an article from University of Kentucky Gluck Equine Center, an excerpt from Egon Kamarasy’s new biography and news from members.
Coming up later this year, we have the San-n-Tone Show who has held Shagya Arabian Halter classes for over 10 years now so mark your calendar and bring your horses. It will be held at the Shelby Co. Fairground, Shelbyville, Kentucky on September 21, 2014. The San-n-tone winter series of shows has been around for close to 30 years now. They started out years ago as a winter series of schooling
shows to keep students from different stables riding through out the winter months. Modeled after the Winter Tournament series shows that Helen Crabtree (mother of Saddleseat riding) started for students to practice their equitation on American Saddlebred horses in this area.
The San-n-tone Shows have grown to hold close to 70 classes in one day. There is something for everyone, every age, every breed and every style of riding. Held in the historic ring where hundreds of World Champion Saddlebreds have shown. Truly a fun time for the entire family. We would like to thank Sandy Stewart for all of her support through out the years in promoting the Shagya Arabian horse in the USA. For more information: http://www.san-n-tone.com
The North American Young riders Championships are held at the KY Horsepark. The endurance riders will compete on July 18th . ASAV will have their promotional booth there serving refreshments, finding new friends and catching up with seasoned veterans like Jeremy and Ellen Olson, ASAV members who have ridden Shagya Arabian horses to World Titles in FEI Endurance Competitions. It will be great catch up, come and see us.
If you have articles or information for our newsletter let us know by August 1st. The ASAV Board of Directors will try to meet in August. If there are topics you wish for us to discuss drop me an email at ASAV@bellsouth.net. I’ll be sending out a first draft agenda items very soon and we can add your topic.
We are considering the Spook Run Ride, in Henryville, Indiana October 31 and November 1, 2014 for the ASAV Distance Challenge. We will hope to have a 50 mile ride and 25 mile limited distance championship awards. Please let us know if this is a good date for you. Clark State Forest is beautiful this time of year.
