Negotiations Continue With TWHBEA on Futurity



The Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration has been honored to host and manage the TWHBEA National Futurity for approximately twenty years.

An offer has been made by the Celebration Board of Directors to the Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders’ and Exhibitors’ Association to continue the relationship and management agreement that has been in place. That includes the show being held on Wednesday, August 22, 2007 at Calsonic Arena with its classes being designated as qualifying classes for The Celebration. As part of that agreement, the National Futurity would be affiliated with the same Horse Industry Organization (HIO) as The Celebration, use the same judging panel, and center ring staff.

It should be noted that other proposals regarding affiliation and management of the National Futurity were submitted by the TWHBEA. Those proposals differ from the one detailed here and all were considered by the Celebration Board of Directors.

Should the TWHBEA choose not to continue the agreement as previously described, The Celebration would welcome the industry’s highest-paying one-night event on a mutually-acceptable date outside the eleven-day footprint of The Celebration.

The Celebration and TWHBEA have long been partners on many initiatives within the industry to promote the breed and hopes to welcome the return of the National Futurity in 2007.
