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 30 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 ASHBA, members of PSHA receive a discount on their ASHBA membership.
PSHA has a fantastic Highpoints Awards Program that recognizes the Saddlebred, Morgan, Hackney & Friesian breeds as well as Academy & Equitation riders. Our program accumulates points throughout the year from shows in our region. Unique awards crafted by different artists each year are presented at our banquet in over 30 divisions. To be eligible, you must be a member of PSHA and nominate your horse or rider.
PSHA welcomes the next generation of Saddlebred enthusiasts by offering junior members the chance to earn gift certificates to Freedman's Harness. Junior Exhibitor members can submit a one page essay about "What they love the most about riding" for the chance to win. Results will be announced at Keystone Classic Horse Show.
