FAST Announces Premier Sponsorship of Celebration Versatility Series



SHELBYVILLE, Tenn. – The Foundation for the Advancement and Support of the Tennessee Walking Show Horse (FAST) is pleased to announce its $5,000 premier sponsorship of the Celebration Versatility Series. Created by the Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration, the series of shows will offer versatility events, country pleasure, trail pleasure, lite-shod and classic park pleasure. There will be classes available for youth, amateur and professional exhibitors.

There will be six shows prior to the 2011 Celebration and two shows after the Celebration that will be counted toward the 2012 Series. High point awards will be awarded to the high point trainer, high point amateur, high point youth and high point all-around horse.

“FAST is excited to help this special program by bringing industry supporters and positive initiatives together,” said FAST President Mike Inman. The funds donated to FAST for this initiative were earmarked by the donors and are not part of the Unified Horse Show Development program recently announced by FAST.

Although the Celebration Versatility Series does not have classes for all disciplines of the show horse, FAST is happy to help when donors have specific initiatives they want to support.

FAST is a 501 (c)3 organization that’s mission is to promote and preserve the Tennessee Walking Show Horse. All donations are tax deductible and are put to immediate use in the industry. For more information or to make a donation visit FAST online at www.FASTWalkingShowHorse.org
