Celebration Affiliates with Commission


WHR Copyright 2007


The Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration agreed this morning to affiliate with the National Horse Show Commission.  Representatives of both organizations met this morning at the Celebration offices in Shelbyville, Tenn. and reached an agreement.


For Immediate Release from the NHSC – July 19, 2007


The National Horse Show Commission is pleased to announce that on Wednesday July 18, 2007 at approximately 2:30 p.m. the Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration chose to affiliate with the NHSC.  The NHSC is pleased to continue our long standing affiliation with the Celebration.


The NHSC had also hoped that the same relationship could have continued with the 2007 TWHBEA Futurity.  However, TWHBEA’s expectations were that the NHSC licensed judges were to officiate at the 2007 Futurity under TWHBEA rules and regulations.


NHSC rules and regulations clearly state that judges are not permitted to participate as officials at any other HIO sanctioned show which has their own set of rules to abide by.  Immediate termination of their NHSC license would occur should they choose to do so.


The NHSC wishes TWHBEA and their National Futurity the best and hopes that we can work with them in the future.


We look forward to continuing our over 30 year relationship with the Celebration and expect this 2007 show to be one of the best ever.
