FAST Welcomes Back Kesselring



SHELBYVILLE, Tenn. – The Foundation for the Advancement and Support of the Tennessee Walking Show Horse (FAST) has announced the return of Kasey Kesselring to its board of directors.  Kesselring was Vice-President of FAST during its initial phases and was very instrumental in its formation.  Kesselring resigned in late 2010 upon his election to a post in Florida, citing time constraints.

“We are excited to have someone of Kasey’s ability joining our board.  Kasey was a huge influence on FAST during his first term and we all look forward to his input moving forward,” said President Mike Inman.  Kesselring lives in Montverde, Fl. and serves as Headmaster at Montverde Academy.

Kesselring also recently served on the Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders’ & Exhibitors’ Association executive committee and is a board member of the Florida Walking & Racking Horse Association.  Kesselring owns both performance and pleasure horses and exhibits along with his daughter, Kailin.  After learning his new appointment in Florida would not require the time he thought Kesselring was willing to rejoin the FAST board.

FAST is a 501(c)3 foundation with all donations being tax deductible.  FAST’s mission is to promote and preserve the Tennessee Walking Show Horse and all funds are immediately reinvested into the industry to help in areas of education, promotion and preservation of the Tennessee Walking Horse.  FAST has issued grand totaling nearly $135,000 since its inception in late 2009.
