Lewisburg, Tenn. - The Mane Event was once again a huge success. Held in Red Deer, Alberta, this event brought in over 60,000 people from across Canada on April 29th-May 2nd. The Tennessee Walking Horse Association of Western Canada (TWHAWC) represented The Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders’ and Exhibitors’ Association (TWHBEA) with a booth at the event. 

President Art Scopick, Bernice Jelfs, Bill and Grace Adams, along with many volunteers manned the booth space. Also representing TWHBEA at this event were Director of Marketing Chris Coffey and Clinician Barbara Civils. Civils conducted three well attended clinics covering a balanced ride and gait recognition. The TWHAWC and the Canadian Registry of the Tennessee Walking Horse, in cooperation, held several exciting breed demos and provided horses for all of the clinics. TWHBEA would like to especially thank both clubs for their assistance at this event promoting our great breed. TWHBEA would also like to thank Barbara Civils for her perseverance and attendance of this event even after a devastating storm hit her barn on the night before leaving for the event. All parties involved spent countless hours answering questions and providing guidance to new horse owners and many interested parties.
