Facilitation Group Announcement



The Facilitation Group is pleased to announce a Public Forum will be held on February 17th at 3:00 PM at the Farm Bureau Meeting Room on Bethany Road in Shelbyville, Tenn.  The Celebration, National Horse Protection Society, National Horse Show Commission, Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders’ & Exhibitors’ Association, Walking Horse Owners’ Association, Walking Horse Trainer’s Association, The Humane Society of the United States, The United States Department of Agriculture, and all other Horse Industry Organizations will be invited to send one representative to participate as a Panelist in this Forum.

Each organization’s representative will be asked to make an opening statement describing its understanding of the most critical issues facing our industry and its proposed solutions to address those issues. The Panelists will then be asked to receive and respond to questions and/or comments from the audience.  The local print and press media will also be invited to attend.

This is a critical time for our industry to recognize and address its internal challenges and public image. It is beneficial for the industry’s leaders to hear from TWH owners, exhibitors, breeders, trainers, and enthusiasts regarding our future.  We suggest you come into Shelbyville early in the day and attend Waterfall Farms’ colt preview starting at 10:30 AM.  Waterfall Farms will provide a catered lunch at the colt preview.
