WELCOME TO NCASHA

Mission Statement

  •  
  • The Northern California American Saddlebred Horse Association is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization. The club is set up to help educate the public about the American Saddlebred horse and foster regional ownership and enjoyment of the breed. The organization is a local Charter Club of the national American Saddlebred Horse Association (ASHA) and part of the Association's worldwide network of more than 50 Charter Clubs. 
  •  
  • Our Charter Club promotes Saddlebreds at the local level and helps newcomers to learn more about the breed, as well as offer many equine and social activities for everyone's education and enjoyment. Typical activities for the Charter Club includes putting on horse shows, riding in parades, participating in horse fairs, presenting annual awards, trail rides and other popular equine pastimes. NCASHA is located in Northern California, but has members throughout the Western States.

Vision

  •  
  • The vision of our Club is to serve and promote interest in the history, breeding, ownership, exhibition, publicity, use and improvement of the American Saddlebred horse. This breed offers an equine experience unlike any other with its intelligence, athleticism and beauty.
  •  
  • “In great measure, the retention of those characteristics is due to the stewardship of those who never forgot its heritage or its trials, those people whose hearts beat a little faster at the sight of a good horse and the sound of its footfalls, and it is to them that we owe a debt of gratitude for their wisdom. The American Saddlebred, a breed that is now coming home once again to its rightful place of prominence in American Equine History.”
