International Show to Include Arts and Crafts Fair




     MURFREESBORO, TENN -- An Arts and Crafts Fair, including woodworking demonstrations and an art show and sale, will be a part of the 2006 International Grand Championship Performance Horse Show.  The show is scheduled for Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, September 28th, 29th and 30th in the air-conditioned Tennessee Miller Coliseum in Murfreesboro.   The Arts and Crafts Fair will open at 4:00 pm on Thursday and Friday and Noon on Saturday.  The horse show begins at 7:00 pm each evening.
     “We think the Arts and Crafts Fair is a nice compliment to our schedule,” says Tommy Hall, show manager.  “It will give our out-of-town visitors something to do during the day and will hopefully attract more local residents to the show.”  The Arts and Crafts Fair will feature local artists, western wear, equine items, jewelry and quilts.  Free pony rides will be available for kids each day until the show starts at 7:00 pm.  On Saturday there will be a blacksmith demonstration and a demonstration by the Murfreesboro Woodworkers.
     General admission tickets for the International Grand Championships are $5 each day and also include admission to the Arts and Crafts Fair.  Box Seat tickets for the horse show are also still available.  For more information, call 615-494-8822 or visit www.walkinghorseowners.com.
     The International Grand Championship Walking Horse Show is a 28-year tradition in Murfreesboro, Tennessee and is hosted by the Walking Horse Owners’ Association of America.  International Pleasure and Colt Champions are crowned each August and International Performance Horse Champions are crowned each September at the Tennessee Miller Coliseum.  The International is always one of the top showcases for Tennessee Walking Horses in the country, and in 2005 was voted “Best Multi-Night Horse Show” by the readers of the Walking Horse Report.
