It’s Football (Horse) Time in Tennessee!

TTEC, a Tennessee Walking Horse University of Education, is ready to play ball!  Proudly promoted by the Unity Committee, comprised of the Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders’ & Exhibitors’ Association (TWHBEA), Walking Horse Trainers’ Association (WHTA), Walking Horse Owners’ Association (WHOA) and Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration (TWHNC), the school is currently recruiting players for the all-star affair.

Join the team on June 29-30, 2012 and learn how to become an all-star in in the field of owning, training and showing Tennessee Walking Horses.  Regardless of your skill level, TTEC can help you further your career as an ambassador for the Tennessee Walking Horse breed both on and off the field.

The stage will be set by National Speakers’ Association Hall of Fame member, Carl Mays, as he prepares the team his opening “communication” play.  Mays was instrumental as a motivational coach during Coach Pat Summitt’s first National Championship at the University of Tennessee.  Renowned MVP and “horse whisperer” Monty Roberts will take over in the second half of the TTEC game after an awesome display of offensive and defensive skills.  You won’t want to miss the skills that can make you an MVP as well!

Top officials from the USDA and Tennessee Department of Agriculture will be driving TTEC toward the goal line with their presentations while a distinguished gathering of veterinarians will be on hand to keep the team free from injury.  “Special teams” coaches will lend lessons on avoiding penalties and making those long distance field goals.

No, TTEC is not a football game, but winning at TTEC is more important than any game we could watch.  Victory here leads us to a healthy and stable environment for all Tennessee Walking Horse show horses! 

Registration and sponsorship forms are available at TWHBEA, WHOA, WHTA and TWHNC web sites and will be added to media partner web sites in the near future.  Don’t wait, commit early and sign your letter of intent to show your passion for the breed we all love.
