Here is a picture of Hannah Adams and her custom saddle she chose as our 2014 Youth Poles Champion. In an effort to satisfy all winners, the board chose to give out checks to the 2014 saddle winners for the full amount ABRA would have spent on a saddle. This allowed them to pick their seat size, color and any upgrades they wished to purchase. They could also choose to get another brand of saddle or spend the money anyway they saw fit. There was a champion saddle at the finals for awards pictures and our youngest champion was able to take it home. Let us know what you think of this option and if we should continue it this year. Congratulations to Hannah! Thank you for sharing your picture showing the purple seat and cross stamping you chose.
