NHSC Now Accepting Show Affiliations For 2006

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- December 15, 2005
For more information contact: Lonnie Messick, executive vice-president, 931-684-9506

The National Horse Show Commission (NHSC) has mailed affiliation information to show managers this week for the 2006 show season. In June of this year the Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders and Exhibitors’ Association (TWHBEA) gave notice to the NHSC, the Walking Horse Trainers’ Association and the Walking Horse Owners’ Association that they would not renew their current contract.   Over the past few weeks the Commission has received numerous calls from show managers wanting to make plans for the 2006 show season.  We want everyone to know that we are in business, and will still be in business next year.    


The Walking Horse Owners’ Association (WHOA) and the Walking Horse Trainers’ Association (WHTA) continue to negotiate with TWHBEA, but have already said they plan to operate the Commission if in fact TWHBEA does not reach an agreement with them.  David Landrum, president of the WHTA, says “We hope that all of the shows who affiliated with the Commission in 2005 will continue with us in the coming year.”

“The Commission has trained an impressive and professional group of DQPs and is proud to have the top judges in our industry as a part of our organization,” says Lonnie Messick, executive vice-president of the Commission.  “We look forward to serving our affiliated shows in 2006 and for many years to come.”

The Commission office will be closed from December 19, 2005 through January 1, 2006 for the Christmas and New Year holidays.  Their phone number is 931-684-9506.
