The Tennessee Walking Horse industry is fortunate to have participants that range from small children to those that have experienced a full life. Many of our participants first introduction to the Tennessee Walking Horse is through our leadline classes. The parent, family and crowd participation in these classes can be some of the industry’s most enthusiastic.

However, the SHOW rules committee would like to remind everyone that spooking a horse could result in injury for the child participating. Please be careful when using rattlers, towels and other paraphernalia that you don’t distract or spook any of the entries participating. We love our youth and want crowd participation but we also want to be mindful of the health and safety of our children.
