FAST To Help With Fall Show In Calsonic On October 14



The Foundation for the Advancement and Support of the Tennessee Walking Show Horse (FAST) will help host a one-night horse show in the Calsonic Arena on October 14, 2011.  The FAST Octoberfest Horse Show will be managed by Julie Lambert and adjudicated by Steve Hankins of Tazewell, Va.

“The FAST board recently met and was very surprised that only one show was slated for Middle Tennessee in the 60 days following a very successful and exciting Celebration. We felt there was no better way to satisfy our mission statement of supporting our great show horse than to create this fall series (FAST recently announced the FAST Fall Finale on October 28-29 in Franklin, Tenn.).  We promised the industry we would put the money we receive back to work and we continue to come through on that commitment,” said FAST President Mike Inman.

FAST will have Lambert also manage the Fall Finale in Franklin.  FAST will help fund and underwrite the Octoberfest horse show but Lambert will be seeking sponsorship for the show in Calsonic Arena.

"I am proud and excited to manage these two events that will give the trainers, owners, and exhibitors an opportunity to show their horses. These opportunities did not exist two weeks ago and we have a lot to accomplish in a short amount of time,” said Lambert.  Lambert can be reached for more information, sponsorship or volunteers at 931-619-7989.  Just as with the FAST SHOWCASE in July, all donations to these two shows are tax deductible.
 
In keeping with tradition at all prior FAST events, parking and admission will be free.  The FAST Octoberfest show will begin at 6:30PM CST and will feature 31 of the most popular padded and flat-shod classes the industry has to offer. The FAST Octoberfest will also feature a full slate of Riders’ Cup classes.

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
