2022 ASHBA National Pleasure Equitation Finals Return to St. Louis Charity

Published Date: Sep 14, 2022

The ASHBA National Pleasure Equitation Finals will once again take place at the St. Louis National Charity Horse Show. Phase One and Phase Two of the Finals will take place on Thursday, Sept. 29. ASHBA looks forward to seeing these talented young riders take on the finals and chase their #asbdreams!

ASHBA is proud of the history that the finals bring to the Pleasure Equitation and American Saddlebred community. We will once again be sponsoring a $1,000 scholarship to this year’s winner, $500 scholarship for reserve, and gifts to all of the remaining ASHBA Finals competitors. 

The ASHBA National Pleasure Equitation Finals are integral in growing the sport of Equitation and the use of the American Saddlebred Pleasure Horse. For decades, the ASHBA Finals have brought national recognition and scholarship monies to the exhibitors competing. Historically, the ASHBA Finals were a part of the Illinois American Saddlebred Pleasure Horse Association (IASHPA) Equitation Championship series at their National Championship Pleasure Horse Show and then migrated to become a feature of the Wisconsin Futurity. Recently, the ASHBA Finals have found a new home at the St. Louis National Charity Horse Show and has been strongly supported by the Saddle Seat Equitation community, averaging 16 entries annually since 2015. 

The ASHBA Finals are open to equitation riders that have not reached their 18th birthday and are competing on horses registered with the American Saddlebred Registry or the Half American Saddlebred Registry of America. Horses must be shown with full mane and tail with natural carriage. The ASHBA Finals will be judged in two phases with equal consideration on both rail work and a workout. All competitors will have the opportunity to execute the workout in phase two.

ASHBA takes great pride in being able to support the Pleasure Equitation Division and looks forward to increasing their involvement now and in the future. The ASHBA Finals will showcase the American Saddlebred versatility and be a tremendous incorporation to the already strong and wonderfully supported Pleasure Equitation Finals series that occurs every fall.  Many of the riders in St. Louis will also compete later during the week in the prestigious Saddle & Bridle Pleasure Equitation Medallion Finals.
