The TWHBEA Executive Committee today voted unanimously to affiliate their Futurity with the National Horse Show Commission. The vote took place during a lengthy conference call and was in response to a meeting and an exchange of letters with the Celebration Board of Directors.

TWHBEA President Jerrold Pedigo will be sending a letter to Celebration Chairman John T. Bobo outlining the TWHBEA's decision and offering suggestions to further improve the inspection process at this year's show.

The Report will update this story as more information becomes available.
