Howard Appointed To Celebration Board



The Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration has announced that Jeffrey Howard has been appointed to its board of directors.  Howard fills the vacant spot of Jim Allison, who recently lost his battle with cancer.  

Howard currently serves as Publisher of Walking Horse Report and has been active in the Walking Horse industry since his return to Dabora, Inc. in 1999.  Howard has been married to wife, Mindee for 15 years and they have two children, Jax (8) and Blake (5).  Howard attends First Nazarene Church in Shelbyville and is a board member of the Foundation for the Advancement and Support of the Tennessee Walking Show Horse. 

Chairman Pat Marsh said of the announcement, “Jeffrey Howard is a great person to have on the Board because of his wealth of knowledge on the horse and the people in the industry. We are very fortunate to have a young, energetic person of Jeffrey’s caliber on our board who truly loves the Tennessee Walking Horse.”

Howard’s father, David, was a long-time member of the Celebration Board of Directors and recently retired from service on the board.  “I appreciate the confidence of the members of the board in selecting me to fill the void of Mr. Allison.  He was a great man that was a valuable asset to The Celebration and he will be missed deeply,” said Howard.

“To have the opportunity to serve on a board that my father served on for so many years is also a privilege. He cared deeply about The Celebration and I take seriously the responsibility of serving on such an important board especially in such a critical time for The Celebration, the Walking Horse industry and the community of Shelbyville and Bedford County.”

The board also voted to put Kyle Insell and Kate Canady on the Celebration Association.
