The ACHA Saddle Series will return this year! A saddle will be awarded to the top aggregate score throughout the year in the:
✨ 25,000 Novice Horse
✨ 50,000 Amateur
✨ 35,000 Non Pro
The saddle series awards both consistency and success in the show pen. The saddle will be awarded based on aggregate score over all 2023 ACHA approved shows to the top rider in the 50k amateur and 35k non pro, and the top rider-horse combo in the 25,000 Novice Horse open.
*At any show over one judge, the average score between judges will be used. Example, rider scores a 150, a 75 will be used for tracking.
*This series does not include the Thorlakson Summer Series
We would like to say a special thank you to the sponsors of this year's ACHA Saddle Series. Without their sponsorship towards this specific initiative, it would not have been able to happen this year.
