Experience Highlights 2011 Celebration Judging Panel



SHELBYVILLE, Tenn. – The 2011 Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration will feature 12  years of Celebration judging experience within the five members of the judging panel.  Jennifer Bingham, Shelbyville, Tenn., Jamie Hankins, Paris, Ky., Ronnie Spears, Tullahoma, Tenn., Jamie Bradshaw, Union Grove, Ala., and Jeff Willis, Shelbyville, Tenn. will adjudicate the 73rd Annual Celebration.
 
Hankins will be making his sixth appearance (1994, 1996, 2001, 2003, 2008) and Spears his fourth (1999, 2006, 2007).  Bingham will be making her third consecutive appearance and Bradshaw will be making his third appearance as well (2006, 2009).  Making his debut performance will be Willis. While being the rookie on the panel, Willis is not a stranger to the Celebration Arena as he judged the 2010 Spring Fun Show in the same arena.
 
“I’m excited to have this experienced panel as we welcome a newcomer to center ring.  I have every confidence that they will be great Celebration judges and a credit to the industry.  I look forward to working with each and every judge at the 2011 Celebration,” said Celebration CEO Dr. Doyle Meadows.
 
The 73rd Annual Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration will begin August 24, 2011 and run through September 3, 2011 when it crowns the Tennessee Walking Horse World Grand Champion.  The entry deadline is August 2, 2011.  For more information visit The Celebration online at www.twhnc.com
