Letter To The Editor - Joyce Moyer



As Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders' and Exhibitors' Association Executive Committee Vice President of Marketing, and in the best interest of TWHBEA, the Tennessee Walking Horse, and the Tennessee Walking Horse Industry, I hereby disassociate myself from participation with the United Horse Show Development Program.  Complete disclosure about the recently organized UHDP was not supplied when the horse show development presentation was made to the TWHBEA Executive Committee at the meeting held on Saturday, March 19, 2011. 

I cannot and will not participate in any program that does not include horse show assistance eligibility for all interested TWHBEA members in every state including TN and KY, nor will I be associated with any effort exclusive to only the few HIOs not including the APHIS Points of Emphasis penalty structure in the rule books.  I apologize to those TWHBEA members by whom and for whom I am elected to serve for my lack of understanding causing me to accept at face value the incomplete and misleading UHDP information presented to the Executive Committee.
       
Understanding TWHBEA has in place an Executive Committee structure to unify, support, and promote every aspect of the Tennessee Walking Horse Industry; it is my sincere belief those of us designated the responsibility for Tennessee Walking Horse promotion can best assist and strengthen the industry by working within the framework of TWHBEA and other membership driven industry organizations.  Supporting groups promoting efforts evidenced to be selectively discriminatory is not in the best interest of TWHBEA, the horse, and the industry.

Respectfully submitted,

Joyce Moyer - Ohio
