ASH shows recognize several divisions in multiple disciplines including,
Hunter/Jumper, Dressage, Western, Gymkhana, Halter, Western and Driving that allow riders
and horses to earn points towards our year-end awards. In the past few years, recognized

the ASH division awards are in place. We hold a banquet that is known for great prizes
and a fantastic evening!
