Grant Funding From TWHBEA Continues To Empower The Horse



LEWISBURG, Tenn. - Jeff Morgan, Coordinator for the TWHBEA Horse Show Development Program announced on May 13, 2003, that the Grant Program started last year has exceeded all measure in terms of empowering civic and philanthropic organizations for their local benefit.

“It seems that this financial assistance program has certainly been welcomed by many socioeconomic-diverse groups in several parts of the country because we are very close to reaching our ceiling in the amount of funding appropriated for fiscal year,” remarked Jeff Morgan. This funding program was initiated to assist many clubs in their efforts of breaking new ground with a walking horse show. It has assisted over 100 organizations to date.

Additionally, Morgan commented that due to the dramatic increase in applications and demand, the TWHBEA assistance. “Some, as a matter of fact, few shows fail to realize the dollar amount attached to this new ‘aid’ program. We currently exploring more strict criteria for 2004 fiscal. One of the things most assuredly coming in 2004 qualifying is that each show no matter their tenure in the HSD Program must submit proof advertisements or “tear sheets” this next season,” commented Morgan.
