Dear TASHA Supporter,

We are pleased to announce our 2018 Holiday Horse Show will be held December 1-2, 2018 in Bryan, TX at the Brazos County Expo Center, and we want you there!

As we finish our 45th year of TASHA shows, we want to mark this important milestone with a CELEBRATION!  Plans are underway for the best show ever, and we need your support. 

The Saturday show session begins at 10:00am and includes a one hour lunch break.  This session will feature some very special classes, V.I.P. presenters, and Saddlebred Rescue Inc. as our honored guest and charitable partner.  Following the Saturday afternoon session, we want you to join us for a PARTY on the show grounds!  Meet and mingle with TASHA friends both young and old.  Food, drinks, music and fun will be served as well as the debut of our 1st Annual Dance Challenge to benefit Sadlebred Rescue, Inc.    Plus, we will present the 2017-18 TASHA High Point Awards and share some memories of the past 45 years with a slide show!

On Sunday, the show will begin at 9:00am, and will feature some shiny new Perpetual and Challenge Trophies!  During the 90-minute lunch break, we will serve complimentary Box Lunches and have our annual membership meeting conveniently located on the show grounds.  All current TASHA members are invited to participate and vote on new directors.

So, will you help us celebrate?

 We can customize any sponsorship to fit your needs, and we have some A La Carte options available on our  ONLINE FORM

About TASHA

Founded in 1973, the Texas American Saddle Horse Association (TASHA) is a Charter Club Member of the American Saddlebred Horse Association headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky.

The first Board of Directors was George Roberts Jr., Charlie Isom, & Margie Newton closely supported by Lenoir Roberts, Dorothy Dukes Ford, and Edmund and Ada Perwien.  Among the first ASHA charter clubs founded, the group’s mission statement was “to organize a horse show circuit in Texas, promote the education of people in Texas in the breeding, care, use, handling & development of the American Saddlebred Horse, encourage good sportsmanship & proper conduct among horsemen & women, foster good fellowship, encourage proper & humane handling & care of the American Saddlebred horse and prevent cruelty to animals.

Two decades of TASHA shows were held at the Bear Creek Arena in west Houston, Supreme Acres Stables in Stafford (Fort Bend Co.), and in Liberty County before making a move to Great Southwest Equestrian Center in Katy and more recently also in Bryan, TX. TASHA has benefitted several charities in & out of the Houston community as well as encouraged it’s youth to make the most of their horses & education. Just a few of these projects are: Art Contest for the Cover of the annual membership directory, essay contests for a youth scholarship, pet adoption events held at shows, the Southwest Circuit Invitational World Cup Competition where riders from the U.S. & South Africa enjoyed team competition during the show, Ride for the Rescue & Barn Challenge events to benefit Saddlebred Rescue, fundraisers for the American Heart Association and several more.

TASHA continues today as one of the most active & largest charter clubs in the united States. Our board and members remain committed to the mission of our founders and continually strive to strengthen the Texas American Saddlebred community.
