PSHA promotes the American Saddlebred at the local level by supporting horse shows, educating the public about the virtues & versatility of the breed, encouraging interest for everyone from longtime supporters to newcomers, and awards yearly high point awards for performance at our local shows.
Established in the early 1980’s, PSHA is a registered charter club of the American Saddlebred Horse Association. We were honored to have been named Charter Club of the year in 2005 for our dedication to the breed and to our members. PSHA has also managed the Keystone Classic Horse Show for nearly 25 years.
The graceful Saddlebred is the ultimate show horse as well as an enjoyable pleasure mount. Saddlebreds possess that people-oriented quality called personality, endearing them to their owners & admirers. Their conformation makes them very comfortable to ride and their animation, speed & intelligence make them equally as exciting.
Joining PSHA allows you to participate in our programs including our annual High Points awards & scholarships. Your membership helps support the clubs activities throughout the year such as sponsoring shows and breed promotion. Members receive a beautiful calendar each year as a gift. And remember, as a charter club of ASHA, members of PSHA receive a discount on their ASHA membership.
PSHA has a fantastic High Points Awards Program that recognizes Saddlebred, Half-Saddlebreds, Morgans, Hackney Ponies & Friesians as well as Academy & Equitation riders. Our program accumulates points throughout the year from shows in our region. High Point awards are presented at our banquet to the top 3 in each division. To be eligible, you must be a member of PSHA and nominate your horse or rider.
