Academy Program Includes Performance Preview Classes

The 2010 WHOA-TWHBEA Academy and Performance Preview will begin January 23 at Clearview Farm in Shelbyville, TN. This year's schedule will consist of Academy Classes starting at 10:00AM in the morning and open, novice, amateur, and youth classes starting at 12:30PM in the afternoon. Dress code is casual for the afternoon session.  These new afternoon classes are designated for riders and horses to practice their skills before the official show season begins. Canter classes will be offered to give riders off-season experience with the canter. The afternoon classes will also count toward the WHOA National High Point Program for 2010. This year a Jackpot Incentive  will be given to the stable presenting the most entries at each show along with a yearend Jackpot Incentive to the top 5 stables presenting the most entries  during the 2010 Academy season.  The Academy Program has been instrumental in the introduction of new riders and owners to the industry since 2002. WHOA and TWHBEA encourage everyone to take part in the 2010 Academy and Performance Preview .
