GO! Still On The Grow



      Lewisburg, Tenn. – The Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders’ and Exhibitors’ Association’s (TWHBEA) GO! Gelding Opportunities Program continues to grow by leaps and bounds. In 2008, there were 42 entries in the program and the total payout came to $1,680. A year later, the program boasted 61 entries with a total payout of $3,005. 2010 is shaping up to be the biggest year yet for the GO! Program. As of August 31, 149 geldings were enrolled in the program and TWHBEA has already committed to a total payout of at least  $5,000.

 

     The GO! Program is open to all TWHBEA registered geldings owned and/or ridden by a TWHBEA member in good standing. It is a high point program specifically for geldings with junior and senior gelding monetary awards presented in pleasure, performance, versatility, endurance trail, and recreational trail divisions. In addition to those awards, the overall highpoint pleasure and performance geldings are recognized with Super Gelding Awards. The 149 geldings enrolled in the program for 2010 breakdown as follows into the GO! divisions – 66 entries in performance, 53 entries in pleasure, 18 entries in versatility, and 12 entries in recreational trail.

 

     The program runs from year to year and monetary awards are presented to the top five geldings in each division as well as to the two Super Geldings. There is a modest annual nomination fee of $20 for each division, the sum of which is paid back out as part of the divisional and Super Gelding monetary awards.
