FAST Cancels June Jubilee

The Foundation for the Advancement and Support of the Tennessee Walking Show Horse (FAST) has decided to cancel its inaugural June Jubilee at the Williamson County Ag Center in Franklin, Tenn.  FAST was unable to alleviate scheduling conflicts with other areas shows on that weekend.

“Our mission is to promote the Tennessee Walking Show Horse and our horse shows have been a big part of that however our board does not want to potentially hurt any horse show that serves the industry.  We felt like having a show on the same weekend as other Middle Tennessee shows was a conflict to our mission of promotion,” said President Mike Inman.

FAST recently held the FAST Spring Showcase on March 15-17, 2012 at the Calsonic Arena in Shelbyville, Tenn. and raised just over $30,000 in funds that will be used for the advancement and support of the Tennessee Walking Show Horse industry.  FAST also tentatively has scheduled the Fall Finale October 26-27, 2012 at the Calsonic Arena.

“Our purpose in having horse shows is to provide our great horse the venue to showcase its abilities and to allow FAST a fundraising initiative to further advance and support our great show horse.  Our industry is facing significant hurdles and FAST wants to be in a position to advance our show horse in the areas of most need,” concluded Inman.

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
