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.
