President’s Message from Tandy Patrick, Journal of the American Saddlebred
The 2013 Journal Of The American Saddlebred which has recently been released features a message from Bingham Greenebaum Doll LLP partner Tandy Patrick, who is president of the American Saddlebred Horse Association (the “ASHA”). The ASHA has approximately 7,000 members from across the United States, Europe, and South Africa; its offices are located at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington.
President Patrick’s message encompasses the ASHA’s mission to promote, improve and protect the grace, intelligence and versatility of the American Saddlebred, and to provide programs and services supporting the members, while fostering public awareness of the breed.
Patrick, who is a lifelong horse owner, breeder and exhibitor, has experience representing various horse owners and breeders from several different states. Her clear passion for the Saddlebred and her dedication to the association has allowed her to be a part of a rich heritage following a distinguished group of past presidents of the organization. This year marks the 100-year anniversary of the John B. Castleman Monument on his horse Caroline. General Castleman was the Association’s first president, who grew up in Kentucky at the very same time the Saddlebred was being developed. He was an instrumental part of establishing the American Saddle-Horse Breeders’ Association in Louisville, Kentucky in 1891.
Along with Patrick’s message, the annual Journal offers breeding statistics, focuses on the bloodstock of the horse industry, and showcases the current years champions and awards. To view President Patrick’s full message, visit the American Saddlebred Horse Association.
