Celebration Class Splits



The Celebration® has announced that a total of twenty classes will be split at the 72nd Annual Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration.   One class, the Two-Year-Old Walking Stallions, will be a 3-way split.   Dr. Doyle Meadows, CEO of The Celebration, along with Entry Office Manager Margaret Eakin are very pleased that the numbers in these twenty classes supported the splits.  “Many of our classes remain stable, and we are pleased to have over 3200 entries for this year’s Celebration,” Meadows noted.

Eakin stated that the addition of approximately 20 new classes this year received strong support.  “The Flat Shod Division continues to grow across the nation, and we added approximately 15 classes to that division in response to that growth.   Entries in those classes were very good and it was necessary to split two of them.”  

On the first Saturday night, August 28, 2010, the Aged Stallions will qualify for the honor of competing for Tennessee Walking Horse World Grand Champion honors.
