Cantrell Elected President of WHTA



FRANKLIN, Tenn. - The Walking Horse Trainers' Association held its general membership meeting today in Franklin, Tenn. at the Marriott Cool Springs.  The major orders of business included a presentation from Frank Eichler, attorney for SHOW HIO, regarding SHOW's responses to the OIG Audit, Mandatory Penalties and HSUS Petition.

As happens each year, the December meeting is when the elections are held for the upcoming year.  Bill Cantrell was elected President over incumbent Winky Groover and Wayne Dean.  The following members were elected to serve three-year terms on the board of directors, Billy Gray, Larry Wheelon, Link Webb and Brock Tillman.  Wayne Dean will serve out the two years remaining on Cantrell's term on the board.

Chad Williams, 1st Vice-President, and David Landrum, 2nd Vice-President ran unopposed and were thus elected to serve just as they did in these roles in 2010.

Other members on the slate of directors included Jeff Green, Dick Peebles, Frankie Roark, Brandon Stout, Laurie Toone, Vickie Self, Dude Crowder, Brad Beard, Brad Davis and Joe Fleming.

A complete story on the meeting will be posted and in the print edition of the Walking Horse Report.
