FAST postpones Gala



In light of the serious situation with the COVID-19 virus, FAST has decided to reschedule the Spring FAST Gala. Based on the warnings regarding large gatherings, we feel it is in the best interest of our caterers, auctioneers and supporters to postpone the event to November 12, 2020 with a one day show following the Gala on November 13, 2020. We are committed to making this event as wonderful as ever. Once we are through these trying times, we will have a lot to celebrate. Then we will “Paint the Town Red”!

The FAST Spring Showcase Horse Show, as of this time, will go on as scheduled on April 16-17, 2020. Keeping in mind that the Trainers Show has already been rescheduled, we have updated the class list to include the following additional classes:

Riders' Cup 2-Year-Old Trail Pleasure Class 
Amateur Lite Shod Class

Click here to view the updated show schedule. The show will have 58 classes over two evenings.

FAST is monitoring this fluid situation with the virus, and will keep you apprised of any CDC, Tennessee or Federal policies that would affect us.

We wish all of you the best of health. Our prayers are with you, our industry and our country. Thank you so much for the support of FAST that you have and continue to show.
