Celebration gives free ticket to all Bedford County students



The Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration recently donated over 9,000 tickets to students in Bedford County schools. Each student was given a free ticket to the attend the 80th Annual Celebration.  

Each Bedford County school was issued tickets for a particular night that affords that student free admission to the horse show.  Many of these schools participated in the Equine Education Day, held in March, where children in Bedford County and surrounding counties attended an educational day about the Tennessee Walking Horse in Calsonic Arena on the show grounds of the Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration.  Many children had their first experience riding a horse at this event.
