SHELBYVILLE, Tenn. - The Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration is pleased to host the 2014 Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders’ & Exhibitors’ Association (TWHBEA) National Futurity on Wednesday August 20, 2014 at the Calsonic Arena.  In recent years the National Futurity had been held in Murfreesboro, Tenn.

“We are pleased with the decision of TWHBEA to return the National Futurity to its traditional date on the first day of the Celebration.  We are pleased the Walking Horse fans will have an opportunity to enjoy the young horses the breed has to offer as part of the National Futurity,” said Celebration Chief Executive Mike Inman.

As part of the return of the National Futurity, the five-person Celebration judging panel will also adjudicate the Futurity and those classes will serve as qualifiers to Celebration championship classes.  Also, TWHBEA will offer buy-ins to the National Futurity for yearlings, two-year-olds and three-year-olds not previously nominated.

The 76th Annual Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration will be held August 20-30, 2014 on its historic show grounds in Shelbyville.  For more information visit
