The Walking Horse Owners’ Association Negotiations Committee, comprised of David Pruett, Scot MacGregor, George Greenup, Herschel Blessing and Rhonda Martocci, met with the Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders’ and Exhibitors’ Association Thursday to begin negotiations that will determine the future of the National Horse Show Commission.

This was the first meeting between the two organizations since the TWHBEA issued the following statement last week: "TWHBEA agrees to enter into intense negotiations with WHTA and WHOA to discuss the details of the HIO Sanctioning Plan acknowledging that remaining within the NHSC is a possibility."

TWHBEA will meet with the Walking Horse Trainers’ Negotiations Committee Monday for the first time. It is likely that several meetings will take place over the course of the next several weeks as the three organizations iron out a plan that will best serve the walking horse industry.
