SHELBYVILLE, Tenn. – The Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration® has been cited by a leading travel website as a "2008 Best Bet" for times to visit the Nashville/Middle Tennessee area.

The Celebration® was selected by the experienced editors of 10Best and independent journalists. Their expert sources and exhaustive research allow 10Best to provide the ultimate in online travel recommendations and localized data – worldwide.
