Your email should include a very clear subject line such as "HPA Listening Session 2012".

Industry data and statistics supporting the Tennessee Walking Show Horse have been gathered and are currently being put together for WHOA, TWHBEA and WHTA to circulate to their members who would like to attend a listening session or submit a comment.

The first listening session was on Wednesday March 7, 2012 in Texas and a full list of dates can be found here.

Also, you can go to ReporTV and find the Question & Answer sessions from the first listening session.  Click here to view.
