In 2007, TASHA created the Hall of Fame to recognize outstanding individuals to the Breed and the State. In 2012, all three state charter clubs combined to form the Texas Saddlebred Hall of Fame to continue to provide this recognition. Continuing the tradition, in 2018 the remaining clubs in the state, NTASHA & TASHA, transitioned the presentations to the Pin Oak Charity Horse Show.
