Academy Classes To Be Included In The 35th Annual Walking Horse Trainer’s Show



The purpose of the Academy Program is to introduce the Tennessee Walking Horse to a larger audience through a lesson program. Students take lessons on “school” horses and are charged an hourly rate. Because the school horses are owned by the barn or instructor, the beginning rider is introduced to the joys of showing at an affordable cost.

Academy classes are strictly for riders who are regular participants in a lesson program. Academy shows create an environment where riding students can safely and fairly compete with each other at a peer-to-peer level. The academy Program is co-sponsored by TWHBEA and WHOA.

The Following classes will be held on Saturday, March 22nd at 10:00 a.m.
