Celebration Welcomes Wiser Farm Sales as Corporate Sponsor



The Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration is proud to announce it has reached an agreement with Wiser Farm Sales of Shelbyville, Tenn., to become the newest corporate sponsor of The World’s Greatest Horse Show.

In making the announcement, Celebration CEO Ron Thomas said the agreement included Wiser Farm Sales becoming the “Official Horse Sale” of The Celebration.

“We are very happy to have Wiser Farm Sales join our family of corporate sponsors,” relayed Thomas. “They have a strong organization and a rich tradition of having many of the top horses in the industry go through their sale ring.”

Wiser Farm Sales will have two days of sales during the Spring Fun Show, on May 28 and 29. They will also feature a full slate of sale dates during the 66th annual Celebration in late August and early September.

“The Celebration is the premier event in this industry and we feel we have the premier sales event in the industry,” said Tommy Grider of Wiser Farm Sales. “We’re proud to have our company linked with The Celebration name in a very positive way.”

Wiser Farm Sales will receive signage, print advertising, and other sponsor identification as part of their sponsorship package.

The Celebration has been successful with its corporate sponsorship program for nearly two decades. The program has enabled The Celebration to raise overall purses to over $650,000 annually, the highest of any show in the industry by far.

Wiser Farm Sales is located on Highway 64 West just outside of Shelbyville.
