International Pleasure and Performance Events Combine



A decision has been made, after much planning and consideration, to combine the International Grand Championship Pleasure & Performance Shows back into one event for 2010. The date will be July 26-31 at the Tennessee Miller Coliseum in Murfreesboro, TN.  Many exhibitors that support the International each year have requested this change.

Hopefully this will produce the atmosphere and enthusiasm of the Internationals in past years.  "History repeats itself and I am encouraged by the feedback WHOA is receiving about this decision. The International was successful for many years with a combined format and I feel it will benefit WHOA and the International to have one major event again. This year the International will be dedicated to the late Dr. Bob Womack and I am sure  he would have been very happy with this decision," said Tommy Hall, WHOA Executive Director.

The Lewisburg and Pulaski shows are scheduled the week prior and Fayetteville, Belfast, and Wartrace shows are to be held the week following the International.
  
"We are excited about combining these award winning events into one major showcase for all disciplines of the Walking Horse.  I urge everyone to support the International Grand Championships and the Walking Horse Owners' Association as we strive to keep horse shows alive and give trainers and owners a place to show their horses," said WHOA President Frank Neal.
