HIO Letter to TWHBEA

Dear Executive Committee Members:

 

The efforts of TWHBEA in assembling the recent meetings of the Horse Industry Organizations (HIOs) have been appreciated by Heart of America Walking Horse Association (HAWHA).  Even though we have not been able to attend, members attending have updated us on the discussions at these meetings.  The consensus to work together for the betterment of the Tennessee Walking Horse industry is the correct direction to move.  HAWHA feels it would be most beneficial to the industry for TWHBEA to dissolve their HIO.

 

HAWHA believes TWHBEA, the registry of the breed, could use finances designated for the HIO program (if dissolved) in other areas for financial and promotion of the Tennessee Walking Horse.  Dissolving the TWHBEA-HIO would take it out of competition with all the HIOs.  HAWHA would support proposal to include TWHBEA, the breed registry, in the HIO-USDA discussions if they dissolve their HIO.

HAWHA hopes all HIOs can work in a positive way to support each organization.  Feel free to contact me with any questions.

 

Sincerely,

Floyd Hampsmire

DDQP Co-Coordinator

Licensing and Enforcement
