Hollywood Look-A-Likes Wanted!



Lewisburg, TN – TWHBEA is looking for a select group of Hollywood Look-A-Likes to portray famous Tennessee Walking Horses at the Kentucky Horse Park. The management of the Kentucky Horse Park has committed to providing multiple educational exhibitions per week focused on four Tennessee Walking Horse Hollywood icons – Gene Autry’s Champion, Roy Roger’s Trigger, The Lone Ranger’s Silver, and Hoppalong Cassidy’s Topper. The Kentucky Horse Park is the nation’s foremost equine attraction and these exhibitions will give unprecedented publicity to the Tennessee Walking Horse. They will also educate the public, especially youth, about the tremendous contributions our breed has made to the equine and entertainment worlds.

Of course each of these horses had his own distinctive look. Champion was a chestnut sabino or chestnut roan with three or four white stockings and a wide blaze. Trigger Jr. was a palomino, cremello, or gold champagne, and Silver and Topper were both white or maximum sabinos. In addition to having the right look, the horses that portray these icons must be well mannered both on the ground and in the saddle. If you’d like to submit a horse for consideration, please contact TWHBEA Director Of Marketing and Programs Chris Coffey at ccoffey@twhbea.com or 931-359-0624.
