SHELBYVILLE, Tenn. – Joe Carr, candidate for the Tennessee State Senate for District 14, met with a group of trainers at 4 The Glory Farm in Shelbyville, Tennessee on Friday, December, 8, 2017. Carr, served as a state representative and would now like to serve the Tennessee Walking Horse industry as their state senator. 
Joe Carr, has been a life-long member of TWHBEA and owns seven walking horses of his own. Carr spoke to the trainers, enlisting their help. He stated that he wanted to help promote the breed and that he enjoys all aspects of the breed. He said that he loved the breed and wants to be a champion of the breed and to see it return to greatness once again. 

Carr said, “Our breed needs more soldiers in the State legislature and Washington for our breed. While we have favorable conditions, we need to make hay, pulling some of the regulations out of Washington and bringing back local control and help for small businesses. This is not just a Bedford industry, it’s a middle-Tennessee one and we need it to flourish for all of Tennessee.” He ended stating, Politicians respond to pressure points. The move we apply the better response we get. We have some friends in congress but they need more support and encouragement which everyone needs to apply on their congressmen. I will be an ambassador for the breed in the Senate and want to get others aboard for this breed. I am a fighter and we need people in the Senate to fight for us. I can help and you need to lean on congress for your industry so that we can flourish and bring back our Tennessee tradition of Tennessee Walking Horses. I am ready to get in the ring and fight for our great breed.”
