International Horse Show updates



The 40th Annual International Pleasure & Colt Grand Championship, scheduled for July 27 - August 4, 2018 is soon approaching and promises to be the year's greatest showcase for the flat-shod Tennessee Walking Horse. As is tradition, the show will be held at the Tennessee Miller Coliseum on the campus of Middle Tennessee State University, 304 West Thompson Lane in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.
 
The show will feature a full compliment of classes including dressage, traditional rail and colt classes, versatility, a few classes just for fun and enjoyed by all ages. This year's show begins on Friday, July 27 with barrel racing in Peewee Barrels, Open Gaited Horse Barrels and Open 4D Barrels.

Again this year the Silent Auction will be set-up next to the show office. If you would like to donate an item give Teresa a call at the WHOA office or, see her in the show room office.
 
Food trucks will be a new feature of the show and will set up in the alley between the warm-up ring and main stall barn. Also, we are bringing back the morning hospitality wagon with complementary coffee, donuts and juice to the stall barns. The Hospitality Wagon is sponsored by Justin Harney Homes in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.
