FAST Show Allows Fan Voting For Judge



The Foundation for the Advancement and Support of the Tennessee Walking Show Horse (FAST) will host the 2nd Annual FAST Showcase horse show on Sunday, July 3, 2011 at the Calsonic Arena on the show grounds of the Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration.  In an innovative move, FAST will allow fans, owners and exhibitors to go to the FAST web site (www.FASTwalkingshowhorse.org) and vote for a 3A or 4A judge from the list provided on the site.

Open voting will last until April 15, 2011 at which time a list of the top 25 most requested judges will be placed on the site and the public can then vote until May 1, 2011.  The top ten judges will then be placed on the web site and voting will last until May 15, 2011. The winning judges will be ranked and called starting with the judge with the most votes until a judge can take the position as one of the judges of the 2nd Annual Showcase. 

A second judge will be selected by the members of the Walking Horse Trainers’ Association (WHTA).  All members will get a ballot mailed out by the WHTA and all ballots returned with a valid trainers’ license number and name will be counted with the top vote getter securing the second spot.

The final judge will be selected by the FAST board of directors and will serve to balance out the other two choices with regards to geographic location and experience level.  FAST will announce the judges for the Showcase on May 15, 2011.

FAST is a 501 (c)3 organization with all donations being tax deductible.  It remains the only foundation in the industry that solely supports the Tennessee Walking Show Horse.  To make a donation or to find more information visit FAST online at www.fastwalkingshowhorse.org or call a board of director.

A final class sheet is available on the FAST web site. 
Don’t forget the trail Obstacle competition starting at 9:00AM.
