Southeast Arkansas Horse Show Association

President            Alan Ashcraft                   870-879-6211


   Southeast Horse Show Association has been in existence and a member of the Arkansas State Horse Show Association for numerous years and has always promoted a family atmosphere where everyone in the family from young children to adults can show their horses. The purpose of the association is to promote and encourage a family and friendly atmosphere in which people can work together to stage quality horse shows for this area and to qualify entries for the annual Arkansas State Championship Horse Show held Labor Day weekend at Barton Coliseum in Little Rock Arkansas. This show is held to benefit Arkansas Children's Hospital.

    Southeast is one of 12 regional horse show associations that cover the state of Arkansas and sends its top five contestants in all to the state championship show in Little Rock on Labor Day weekend.

   Southeast offers pleasure classes and speed events, with the pleasure and speed events being broken down into age groups, with three age groups for exhibitors under the age of 18 and offers the same events for adults. There is also a lead- line western pleasure class for children, and three pony classes for children under ten riding ponies 52 inches and smaller. There are also two classes for fast and slow gaited pleasure horses. The show season ends with the annual year end awards banquet in January/February where members receive the rewards for their efforts throughout the show year.

It is more than just a horse show.

Horse showing is more than just riding for points.  This picture reflects three generations and 49 years of support of the Ar State Horse Show.

This is truly a tradition worth starting.  My dad started this tradition in Little Rock, Arkansas kn 1963 at the first state show.  He supported it throught the move to Pine Bluff, to Hope, back to Pine Bluff and then back to Little Rock.  My sister and I are very fortunate that his love of horses and the art of showing was so strong and that our family allowed us to fullfill the same dreams.  As your children grow and move on to start their own lives it is hard to find that special time to bring you back together.  For my family, this is the one thing we can count on to bring us together throughout the summer.  I hope your experiance is equally as rewarding.
