Commission Reminder for 2006 Celebration



This is a reminder of the implementations in the inspection area during

the 2006 Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration.

 

Implementations for 2006 Celebration

 

 
•Ground Stewards and Veterinarians will monitor the Celebration Grounds.

 
•Horses entering the inspection area should be properly identified and proceed to the DQP inspection area and be examined by the “next-in-line DQP”.  DQPs will monitor the horses in line so there is no preference of examiners.

 
•Two DQPs will be active in the warm-up ring after inspection to monitor and observe horses in motion and also to observe the addition of approved lubricants and will keep written documentation of their observations.

 
•During evening performances, the Champion Arena will be utilized to examine weanlings, yearlings, harness and driving horses and flat shod horses.  This should create a safer environment and give more room to evaluate horses.

 
•Cameras will be placed to monitor all inspection areas.

 
•Tails may be blocked by a licensed veterinarian or trainer in the presence of a DQP.

 
•The number of individuals allowed per horse in the warm-up ring in the case of juvenile riders be limited to four people (trainer, rider, groom and one parent in the case of juvenile riders).  There are individuals working on an ID system for people entering the warm-up area.

 
•Hoof testers will continue to be used if necessary in inspections.

 
•An acting “Director of Judges” will be appointed for the Celebration to evaluate performance.  Judges will dismiss a horse for “Bad Image” or other violations.  Everyone must be accountable.

Please contact the National Horse Show Commission at
931/684-9506 with any questions.
