The Foundation for the Advancement and Support of the Tennessee Walking Show Horse (FAST) will host a spring horse show in Calsonic Arena in Shelbyville, Tenn. on April 13-15, 2017. The horse show was formed as a result of the cancellation of the Mississippi Charity Horse Show in Jackson, Miss., typically held the first weekend in April. A key element of the mission of FAST is the promotion of the horse through the formation of new horse shows. In addition to hosting shows, FAST also has provided grants to new horse shows forming across the industry.

“Although we are disappointed to lose a show with the history and tradition of the Mississippi Charity, our board felt strongly that we should step in and provide a venue for our horse to be showcased during the first part of April,” said FAST President Kasey Kesselring.
