ASHA High Point Awards Program

The ASHA High Point Awards Program was initiated in 2011 after considerable thought and effort by the Charter Club Council, comprised of volunteers from across the country who represent a broad spectrum of equestrian disciplines.

The High Point Awards Program recognizes competition achievements by registered American Saddlebreds and Half-Saddlebreds in a wide range of categories and disciplines, at all levels, not only in the “traditional” Saddlebred show ring, but also in open breed competition (such as open English pleasure, etc.) and sport horse disciplines. The two highest placing horses owned by active ASHA members in each category are named High Point Champion and Reserve Champion. The program also awards High Point winners in 12 regions and Europe. The specific categories awarded in each region vary depending on regional availability and participation.

The program year runs from December 1 to November 30.

Competitions are segregated into three categories based on length (1-day, 2-day, 3-day or longer) with points assigned on a sliding scale (e.g. there is a multiplier for points from 2-day and 3-day competitions). Scoring is done separately for sport horse disciplines.

There is no enrollment required for the program. Every horse that has competition results entered into the ASHA database (or submitted separately to the ASHA) is automatically eligible for consideration as long as its owner, trainer and exhibitor are active ASHA competing members.

Owners, riders, drivers, handlers and trainers of American Saddlebred and Half American Saddlebred horses showing at USEF licensed competitions must be an ASHA competing member.  

All competitions must be recorded with the ASHA in order for exhibitors to earn points for the ASHA High Point Awards. This form must be received by the ASHA at least one (1) month prior to your show’s dates (the earlier the better). Results MUST be submitted to the ASHA within ten (10) days of the last day of the competition in order to qualify for the High Point Program..
