Georgia Equine Rescue Horse Show



The Foundation for the Advancement and Support of the Tennessee Walking Show Horse (FAST) is proud to announce the successful out come of the First Annual Benefit for Georgia Equine Rescue Tennessee Walking Horseshow in Buckhead, Ga. The show had 91 entries Saturday, September 24, 2011. Their efforts produced over a ton of feed for starving and neglected equines in Georgia and the GA Impound facility will be presented with a check for $2500.00. This show was affiliated with the PRIDE HIO. Beverly Kirk said “I would like to express my deepest gratitude to all the volunteers who helped throughout the entire show. I also want to thank all the trainers, exhibitors and spectators who came out to help support the rescue impound facilities.  This show’s goal of reaching out to help the Georgia Department of Agriculture improve the lives of the neglected and abused horses throughout the state was realized beyond expectations.”  This was the second show that The Unified Horse Show Development, a fund set up by FAST to assist new shows outside Tennessee and Kentucky, has put on this fall.
            
The first show was The Midwest Walking Horse Championships in Jackson, Mo. This show was put on by Dennis Hills and was associated with the Heart of America Walking Horse Association. This show also had a good turnout for a first time endeavor. This show gave this part of Missouri a place to show their Tennessee Walking Horses after several long standing shows had been cancelled.

FAST and the UHDP committee are very proud of their first two new shows and want to express their thanks to Beverly Kirk (Georgia) and Dennis Hills (Missouri) for their vision and hard work to produce these two new shows.
