The ASAW was originally founded in 1942 as the Wisconsin Horse Association and over the years has evolved into a premier Saddlebred Association and Charter Club of the American Saddlebred Horse Association (ASHA). The purpose of the Association is to promote this beautiful breed throughout the State and the upper Midwest. The ASAW’s work takes on many forms, including the presentation of our very own horse show held annually in West Allis, WI. In addition, we promote the breed through clinics, demonstrations, a promotional and information booth at various equine events, the ASAW scholarship program and our annual Awards Banquet.
Today, it’s more important than ever to make sure the public understands why the American Saddlebred is such a remarkable animal. Supporting the ASAW is a great way to continue to make sure the word gets out. The American Saddlebred is not only a performance horse, but also a truly fun and versatile animal
The ASAW sponsors a number of events annually to showcase the American Saddlebred and the folks like you, who help make this breed so interesting to watch, ride and drive. Three of our major events are the ASAW Annual Awards Banquet, the ASAW Summer Premier Horse Show, and the ASAW Summerfun Horse Show. All of these gatherings are a great way to meet other Saddlebred enthusiasts and learn more about this special breed.
