Welcome Hallmark's Sea
We'd like to introduce our newest and oldest herd member, thirty year old Hallmark's Sea. This golden girl found herself in a questionable situation for the past five years and didn't receive the care she needs. Luckily a kind and caring women stepped up to help . After a few months of rehab we were contacted and decided it was best to bring her to AASF to continue her rehab. We look forward to providing updates on her progress and giving this old girl all the love and care she deserves.
Vegas, Robbie and Elvis Compete in Equine Trail Sports
Part of our mission is to retrain our retired show horses for a new career on the trail. This year we made the decision to get involved with a great organization, Equine Trail Sports. After volunteering and judging a few of their events, we figured it was time to get the horses involved. This was the first time for all three geldings and considering not one of them has seen an obstacle course before, they handled it extremely well. Congratulations to our Vegas and Cindy Mathers for placing fourth in the Novice "In Hand" competition.
AASF Welcomes Wallen West Golden Spurs and Cactus Rose Riding Academy Youth Club
We were recently visited by two great group of kids who came out to meet our herd and volunteer their time. The horses were spoiled with carrots and received spa treatments. It was such an honor to meet both of these passionate and caring group of young adults.
Carousel Charity Horse Show
We would like to give a big thank you to the American Saddlebred Association of Arizona and the Carousel Charity Horse Show for featuring us for the second year in a row. It's such a privilege to be part of Arizona's premier multi breed horse show and be surrounded with such hard working people that are devoted to our Saddlebreds. This year our founder was also recognized for her hard work in the Saddlebred community and was presented with the 2017 Sallie Award.
Arizona American Saddlebred Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to educate, rescue, rehabilitate, retrain and rehome Saddlebreds in need. We provide a safe haven for the abused and neglected while recovering both mentally and physically. Our commitment extends to slaughter bound horses, owner surrenders and show horses that have retired due to injuries, age or have just simply lost their competitive edge. Adoptable horses participate in a training program that emphasizes on the well being of each individual equine. For our unridable horses, they live the life of leisure as a sanctuary resident or are adopted as a companion horse only. By promoting our breeds personality, big hearts and versatility we can help preserve the legacy of the American Saddlebred, the horse America made.
