SHELBYVILLE, Tenn. – Kathy Herrin, announcer for The Great Celebration Mule & Donkey Show, will announce the morning classes at the 2004 Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration, according to Celebration CEO Ron Thomas.

Herrin, a resident of Canon City, Colorado, is no stranger to the action at Calsonic Arena. She has been the primary announcer for The Great Celebration Mule & Donkey Show since 1999.

A professional equine announcer since 1989, Herrin’s credits also include the Colorado State Fair, Wyoming State Fair, Kansas State Fair, the National Western Stock Show, the Paint Horse Congress, and numerous shows of varying breeds throughout the western United States. In addition to those events, Herrin also lists her work as the announcer for “An Evening with Dancing Horses” featuring Michael Martin Murphy as a highlight.

“I am absolutely thrilled to be part of one of the most prestigious shows in America,” said Herrin. “I think this is an exciting time in the Walking Horse industry and I am truly honored to have been asked by Mr. Thomas to be a part of the competition and pageantry.”

Herrin will call the action during the five days of competition at Calsonic Arena while Director of Public and Media Relations Chip Walters will be in his third year as the lead announcer in the main arena for the ten nights of the show.

“Kathy is a great person and a wonderful announcer that does her homework and puts her all into making the event special for the exhibitors,” said Thomas. “She is very aware of how we do business and knows what The Celebration audience expects.”

The 66th Celebration is just three weeks away. Classes begin on Wednesday, August 25th and run through Saturday, September 4th.
