In the most recent American Saddlebred Registry board meeting, the Board voted to pass to expansion of the Champion Sport Horse program to add additional discipline specific designations and point programs for Dressage and Endurance. The Champion Sport Horse Program that was developed by the American Saddlebred Horse Association Equine Welfare Advocacy Committee (EWAC) was presented and passed this past July, also will be now be adapted by the ASR to also recognize registered Half-Saddlebreds.
The additional designation passed by the ASR will add a discipline specific recognition to the American Saddlebreds and Half Saddlebreds that earn Champion status within those sport horse disciplines. Just as WC, WCC, WGC etc. are recorded after a horse’s name, EWAC proposes that the “type” of CH-SH be recorded after the horse’s name in parenthesis as follows:
As other CH-SH designations arise and are approved, EWAC will proposed the appropriate abbreviations at the time.
In the July 2020 meeting when the Sport Horse Champion Program was passed by the ASR Board point programs for Eventing also was approved.
