Celebration to enforce dress code




In keeping with the tradition and pageantry of the Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration, the Celebration would like to remind all exhibitors, trainers, owners and sponsors of the dress codes in center ring.

For all grooms or trainers entering the ring to assist with an entry, including after that entry has received the blue ribbon, the Celebration requires that no more than two people enter the ring and those entering the ring must be at least 18 years of age.  In addition, those entering the ring must have pants and a collared shirt on and if wearing a hat is must be positioned forward. 

“The Celebration is the greatest horse show in the world and our policies and procedures must be in keeping with this tradition.  Last year, we enforced this policy and were pleased with the results outside of a few instances.  Our hope is everyone follows the policy this year, however in the event that it isn’t followed the entry will forfeit their prize money,” said Celebration CEO Mike Inman.
 
In addition, the Celebration would like to remind all parties coming to center ring for presentations that gentleman are asked to wear a suit or dress slacks with coat and tie and ladies are asked to wear a dress or pants suit and dress shoes.
