Ms. Christy Parsons

The Walking Horse Report

 

Dear Christy,

            I, first of all, want to thank you and David for your time last Tuesday afternoon, March 28, 2006 to discuss The Report continuing to be the official publication for the Walking Horse Trainers’ Association. This discussion regarded action taken by the WHTA board meeting of Monday, March 27, 2006.

            The Report is the official publication at WHTA events. There are currently two events for this year; the Trainers’ Show and the Annual Banquet. The board action provides for The Report to be the only publication passed out during these events, however, there is an exception to this general policy. The TWHBEA Voice may be passed out at the Trainers’ Show and our annual meeting, which is held jointly with the TWHBEA. Photographers of other publications are allowed in the designated picture taking area with The Report.

            The Riders Cup program is a partnership between The Report and WHTA. The tabulation and record keeping of the points will be performed by The Report. The information promoting the Riders Cup such as the sponsors, participating trainers and affiliated shows will be provided to The Report by the WHTA. The information provided to The Report by the WHTA can be given to other publications provided they credit the partnership between the WHTA and The Report. The current standings of points will not be given to other publications by the WHTA and will be available exclusively in The Report.

            We look forward to working with you as our official publication and the partnership with the Riders Cup.

Billy H. Thomas

Executive Director
