97 Entries at Waterfall's WHOA Academy Show



by Mark Taylor

SHELBYVILLE, Tenn. - The March 10 edition of the 2007 WHOA Academy Program was a huge success with 97 entries competing for honors. This breaks the previous record of 90 entries. Wayne Dean served as judge for the day and did an outstanding job.
NHSC DQP Ronnie Campbell inspected horses and Drs. Poe and Kingston of the USDA were also present to observe. Every horse passed inspection without any problem and USDA VMOs also inspected most horses following the DQP. The USDA officials seemed very pleased with the horses and praised the Academy program and Waterfall Farms’s beautiful facility.
Jack Greene served as official photographer and Steve Barbour did an outstanding job singing the National Anthem. WHOA Academy Chairperson Harolene Willis and her committee members always do a great job at these shows and their hard work are definitely appreciated.
A special thank you to Bill and Sandra Johnson for hosting the show and to Marty Irby, David Williams and Tracy Boyd for making sure everything was prepared for the event. The WHOA Academy Championship will be held at Calsonic Arena on Saturday, March 24, beginning at 10 a.m. For more information on WHOA programs and events go to
