Celebration Preliminary Entries Beat Projections



The entry deadline for the 74th Annual Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration closed on August 7, 2012.  Amidst fear of the economy and industry transition, many industry leaders thought a decline of 20% was a real possibility.  The reality is entries closed at 2,660 vs. 2,936 in 2011, a 9% decline.  The total number of horses that make up those entries is 1,463 vs. 1,567 in 2011, a 7% decline.

These are entries for the preliminary classes only and will grow with championship entries made for the final weekend of the Celebration.
