WESTWORLD OF SCOTTSDALE

Thank You!


The American Saddlebred Association of Arizona wishes to thank all of the exhibitors, supporters, volunteers, workers and especially our sponsors for helping to make the 2018 Carousel Charity Horse show our most successful ever!  Carousel is our largest event and it wouldn’t be possible without the assistance of countless people who help plan, prepare, work during the event itself, and clean up afterward. 
Thank you for helping to make each show day possible and we look forward to seeing you again next year!

THINGS TO DO — SHOPPING & DINING
