FAST Releases Show Development Manual



ATTENTION ALL SHOW MANAGERS and HORSE SHOW PARTICIPANTS!

The Foundation for the Advancement & Support of Tennessee Walking Show Horses, Inc. is proud to announce the completion and publication of the detailed Horse Show Development manual for the Tennessee Walking Horse. FAST thanks Ms. Vickie Penick for her tireless efforts to bring this comprehensive “How to Manual” to our industry.  Vickie collaborated with many people in our industry and wants to give a special thanks to Dee Cantrell and Kathy Zeis for their input and encouragement to bring her efforts to fruition.

“This manual will hopefully give others a handbook with the necessary amount of details that will help them to develop new horse shows.  It is my sincere hope it will help numerous individuals to start up new shows and possibly provide some kind of motivation and encouragement to revive interest in reviving old shows,” said Penick, upon seeing the manual up on the FAST website.  “I would also like to thank Scott Green for the huge task of getting the manual up in its entirety.”

The Horse Show Development manual can be seen at www.FASTwalkingshowhorse.org.  Everyone is welcome to use the manual.  If you would like to add a link on your web site or vice versa, please contact FAST by using the following e-mail address.  If you would like to add your services to the resource lists found in the Horse Show Development manual and the Horse Show Development outline please send an e-mail to info@fastwalkingshowhorse.org and FAST will add under the appropriate service list with your contact information.  If you would like to volunteer to act as a mentor or volunteer to help with a show in your area, send in your information and FAST will use the information to aid a show in your area.

FAST remains the only Foundation that supports the show horse.  All donations made to FAST, a 501-C-3, are tax deductible and will be used to help promote and preserve the Tennessee Walking Show Horse.  “We urge people to look at FAST as a tax deductible way to help fund our great horse through education and promoting our show horse to the public.  Please send in your tax deductible donations today.
