The Report has learned of the passing of Jo Anne Dempsey this evening. Mrs. Dempsey has been an avid supporter of the Walking Horse industry. Most recently Casey Wright directed Mrs. Dempsey's Wicked Walking Witch to the 2013 Three-Year-Old Mare World Championship.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Dempsey and Wright families during this difficult time.

The Report will update as soon as arrangements and a full obituary become available.
