What A Horse Meets




A meeting was held  Sun. March 4th at the WHTA Trainers office.  Veterinarians Dr. Mike Harry, and Dr. Jim Baum, farrier Woody Woodruff, trainer Herbert Derickson, riding instructors Beverly Lamp and Sara Womack, owners Denise Rowland and Cash McCall and talk show host from What A Horse Jerry Harris, were all in attendance.

 

The purpose for this informal gathering was to discuss the future promotions of the Tennessee Walking Horse and how to promote and inform the public of all facets of our great breed.

 

The tentative date for the first Tennessee Walking Horse Exhibition and Fair is scheduled for April 6, 2007 from 10:00 -2:00 p.m.  During this time there will be exhibitions of weanlings, yearlings, flat shod and padded horses.  There will be experts to answer questions on various topics including the inspection process of the show horse, shoeing of the show horse, and the veterinarians will also speak on the health and anatomy of the show horse.

 

The next meeting will be Sunday March 11th at 2:00 p.m. at the WHTA Trainers office and we encourage all interested individuals and professionals to please come with suggestions and input as to how we can better promote the Tennessee Walking Horse.  Plans are to include vendors and horse related businesses to take part in this fair as well.

 

Promoting the Tennessee Walking Horse and educating the public while having family fun.  This is the purpose statement of this group and they need your help to make the Tennessee Walking Horse Exhibition and Fair a success.
