The Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration (TWHNC) received a protest from an exhibitor on August 28, 2014 regarding the eligibility of the entry winning the Amateur Owned & Trained class at this year’s show.  The protest alleged the winner was not in compliance with the no professional training for 90 days rule.

After review by the Celebration and SHOW HIO the protest was upheld and the class will be retied.  Each entry will be moved up one place in the final results from their original placing.

The Amateur Owned & Trained World Championship will now go to High Jacked and Jim Baum. The reserve World Championship will go to The Major Flair and Stephanie Cagle.
