Mr. Jerrold Don Pedigo

1711 Old Fort Parkway, Suite A

Murfreesboro, TN  37129

Dear Jerrold,

This letter is being written at the request and support of the entire Unification Task Force which includes: Ronnie Spears, Allan Callaway, David Pruett, Frank Neal, Jackie Brown, Charles Gleghorn and myself. These members represent the leadership of the Walking Horse Trainers Association, the Walking Horse Owners Association, the National Horse Show Commission, the Kentucky HIO, and the Board of Governance.

It is our desire to reach out to you and the TWHBEA and make every effort to truly become a unified industry. Such common and unified efforts will enable the Tennessee Walking Horse and all associated to reach its true potential. In order to achieve this goal we must all be willing to make the efforts and accommodations necessary to put aside the negatives and emphasize the positives.

It is with this spirit of dialogue, exchange, and compromise that we request to meet with you and your representatives.

We can not and will not allow any past issues to stand in the way of resolution. I can assure that the intent and direction of this group is one of solution.

If you are agreeable to this meeting, please call me at 256-353-1842 as soon as possible so that we can accommodate schedules of those that are to attend.

I look forward to your response.

Sincerely,

Neal Holland, Jr.

Chairman

Unification Task Force
