Bobby Cyrus Partners With The National Walking Horse Association





BGC Records/GMV Nashville Records artist Bobby Cyrus has become the official spokesperson of the National Walking Horse Association.
 
The singer will team up with the association, performing at select events across the country as part of his 2013 “NWHA Tour” and expressing his support for the associations cause. An official ceremony announcing the partnership was held Jan. 25, 2013.
 
"I am very honored to have the opportunity to represent an organization so passionate about preserving the health, welfare and natural abilities of one of the most magnificent horses ever bred, The Tennessee Walker," said Bobby Cyrus.
 
Founded in 1998, The National Walking Horse Association (NWHA), located at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky, is a group of dedicated horse owners and enthusiasts committed to preserving and promoting the naturally-gaited walking horse and its welfare.
 
Cyrus is scheduled to appear at a series of public NWHA events in the coming months, meeting fans, signing merchandise and advocating his passion for walking horses.
 


“The National Walking Horse Association is very excited and proud to have Bobby Cyrus as an official spokesperson not only for our association, but for our beloved Tennesse Walking Horse!” said NWHA President, Jason Crawhorn.
