Celebration Selects Tunica Judges

The Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration will host the Tunica Fall Classic November 3-5 in Tunica, Miss. at the Paul Battle, Jr. Arena.  The Celebration has selected Jennifer Bingham, Ross Campbell and Jamie Hankins to judge.

Bingham and Hankins are experienced Celebration event judges.  Both Bingham and Hankins have judged the Celebration on six occasions and each has previously judged the Tunica Fall Classic.  Bingham judged Tunica in 2013 and judged the Celebration in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2014 and 2015.  Hankins judged Tunica in 2014 and judged the Celebration in 1994, 1996, 2001, 2003, 2008 and 2011.

Campbell will be making his first appearance as a judge at a Celebration event, other than the Celebration Versatility event in 2012.  Campbell has judged three major shows in 2016.  Campbell judged the Gulf Coast Trainers' Show, FAST Spring Showcase and the Money Tree on the 4th of July weekend.

"The Celebration feels we have an excellent panel.  With two judges with multiple Celebration assignments and a strong rising judge getting his first Celebration event opportunity, we have a group ready to preside over classes of the best horses and riders the industry in what is always a highly competitive showcase," said Celebration CEO Mike Inman.
