FAST’s UHDP Helps Two New Horse Shows



The Foundation for the Advancement and Support of the Tennessee Walking Show Horse’s (FAST) United Horse Show Development Program (UHDP) will make grants to two newly formed horse shows.  The first will be The Summer Nights Walking Horse Show in Mason City, Iowa.  The show will be managed by the Tennessee Walking Horse of Minnesota.  The second new show will be The Cajun Classic in Monroe, Texas.  The show is put on by The Southwest Breeders’ & Exhibitors’ Association.

UHDP was formed in 2010 to help existing shows and new shows in the areas outside of Tennessee and Kentucky.  With the help of generous donations to FAST, UHDP has been able to help a total of 15 shows.  “We are excited for these two new shows to help showcase the wonderful Tennessee Walking Horse and these shows fit perfectly with the mission of UDHP,” said Chairperson Deborah Williams.

FAST would like to thank the Heart of America Walking Horse Association and the Fall Championship Horse Show for their efforts from their show, which was extended a grant by UHDP in 2012.  From the proceeds of their show, they made a $750 donation back to FAST to help with other shows in the future.

In addition to those grants of UHDP, FAST has also extended financial help to shows from its general fund.  The Walking For Angels, MTSU Pre-Vet and Eagleville were examples of shows helped through this fund.

FAST remains dedicated to helping to promote and preserve the Tennessee Walking Show Horse as well as the venues in which they are showcased.  In order to help promote and preserve our horse, please help future projects by making a donation to FAST either on its web site at www.FASTWalkingShowHorse.org or by mailing to PO Box 259, Shelbyville, TN 37162.

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
