Five PWHAT Shows Pull Out Of NWHA

WHR Copyright 2006

    The Pleasure Walking Horse Association of Tennessee (PWHAT) has pulled
five of their six shows out of the National Walking Horse Show Association.
    Two of their shows will now affiliate with the commission including
their Flat Shod Celebration and the Gallatin Special Riders Show. Three of
their 'fun' Sunday shows that will be held April 29 in Cookeville, Tenn.,
June 4 in Murfreesboro, Tenn., and Oct. 8. in Murfreesboro, Tenn., at Scott
MacGregor Stables, are not going to affiliate with an HIO. According to Pat
Stout, these three shows will use a steward system as opposed to hiring DQPs
in hopes of saving money.
    Of the six PWHAT shows, the Wilson County Fair in Lebanon, Tenn., was
voted by association members to remain with the NWHA.
    Stout said the association's primary reasons for leaving the NWHA is to
try and get their numbers up and save money.
    The PWHAT banquet will be held Feb. 4 in Smyrna, Tenn., and questions
may be directed to Pat Stout at 931-537-7458.
