FAST to give grant to TWHBEA youth



Kathy Zeis, on behalf of FAST, recently announced that FAST will be awarding a grant to the Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders’ and Exhibitors’ Association Youth Committee following a request from Chris Hazelwood, TWHBEA Youth Vice President. The grant will go toward the revitalization of the TWHBEA Medallion Program. 

FAST a 501 (c)3 organization is dedicated to helping promote and preserve the Tennessee Walking Show Horse as well as the venues in which they are showcased. 

The FAST Board of Directors approved a $2,000 grant to help with the TWHBEA Youth initiative. 
“FAST, Inc. believes in encouraging participation in youth classes and in facilitating our youth in having an avenue to show their canter horses,” Zeis said.

As a further show of support, the 2019 FAST Spring Showcase, April 11-13, is offering two medallion classes in their class line up on Friday night. 

The FAST Spring Showcase is the main fundraising event that allows FAST to award grants and support other initiatives, such as the Unified Horse Show Development Program, new and revitalized horse shows and FAST Equine Education Days (FEED). 

To join in promoting and preserving the horse, anyone can make a donation to FAST by visiting its website at FASTWalkingShowHorse.org or by mailing a check to PO Box 259, Shelbyville, TN 37162. All donations are tax deductible and are put to immediate use in the industry.

“These are your dollars working positively for our horse,” Zeis said.
