Celebration Releases 2015 Class Schedule



This year’s Celebration marks the 77th Anniversary of the World’s Greatest Horse Show. After several meeting and countless hours listening to exhibitors, numerous changes have been made in the 2015 Celebration class schedule.

In some instances those suggestions resulted in new classes being added, while other times changes in class scheduling were necessary. “We followed the past and current trends of the industry to make changes to maximize entries in each class. Another change this year, the top 5 entries from each class are required to return in the championship class or forfeit their preliminary class winnings,” stated Celebration CEO Mike Inman.

Make plans to attend the 77th Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration August 26th – September 5th.  To view a complete class schedule visit our web site at www.twhnc.com or click here.
