BPWHA And IWHA To Host Scar Clinic



The Bluegrass Pleasure and Walking Horse Association (BPWHA) in conjunction with the International Walking Horse Association (IWHA) a USDA-APHIS certified HIO will be holding a scar rule clinic on Saturday April 10th. We invite anyone who shows horses either flat shod or performance to attend. Representatives of IWHA will be on hand to answer questions and inspect horses as to compliance to the Horse Protection Act (HPA).

This is great opportunity for you to have your horses checked without any information being taken or the risk of being cited. This clinic is for the informational purposes only, designed to help in understanding how the law will be applied.

IWHA was recently approved by the KY Horse Racing Commission (KHRC) to inspect horses for the states breeders’ incentive fund program. IWHA is the only HIO of the three HIO’s approved by the KHRC that will inspect performance horses.
    
BPWHA is a newly formed association that is dedicated to showing sound horses only and treating each and every exhibitor fairly and equally. The BPWHA will soon be posting a schedule of shows to be held in all regions of the state that will include both flat shod and performance horses. All shows affiliated with the BPWHA will be eligible for the participants to compete for breeders’ incentive funds.
   
The scar rule clinic will be held at Rolling Acres Farm & Stables located at 1800 Short Line Road in Lebanon, KY 40033. The times will be from 12 noon to 4 PM. Est.  We would like to thank the Stannard family for their hospitality.  All people are invited and encouraged to bring your horses to be looked at.  For more information contact Bryan Richert at 606-271-0381.
