NCWHA Has Successful Sneak Preview

         REIDSVILLE, N.C. - The members of the North Carolina Walking Horse Association met together at Grandy Tuck Stables in Reidsville, N. C., to see what the trainers had been up to during the off season. The Tucks were gracious hosts and provided the perfect setting for the event. 
         Trainers from North Carolina and surrounding states showed off their hard work with their preview of their two and three-year-old colts. Athy Robinson registered the 30-some horses that were shown. Mike McBrayer was the announcer for the colts as well as the auctioneer.
         It is great to have Eddie Tuck back in North Carolina. He showed some good colts as did Ronald Mosley, Craig Baggerly, Grandy Tuck, Derek Monahan and others.
         The North Carolina Walking Horse Ladies Auxiliary had their annual bake sale with their delicious goodies. They also held their monthly meeting during the day. Terri Mosley gave out over 300 of the North Carolina Walking Horse Association directories. She also handed out the ballots for the judges for the championship show in the fall. The members always vote for these three judges.
Mike McBrayer did a fantastic job with the auction of items ranging from tack items to cakes. Everyone always has fun during this event as well as helping the association raise over $600.
         All in all it was a good time with fantastic weather and good horses as well as lots of fellowship among the association members. The next event for the association is the Spring Show, which is going to be held at R&R Arena in Taylorsville, N.C., on April 7.
