NHSC Clarifies AgWorks Solutions Funding



 


     SHELBYVILLE, TENN. -- The National Horse Show Commission (NHSC) would like to clarify an incorrect report that a portion of their inspection fees would be designated to fund AgWorks Solutions, a firm employed by the Walking Horse Trainers’ Association (WHTA).  “The matter was discussed at one of our board meetings, but the NHSC Directors were unclear whether we could fund this because the NHSC is a not-for-profit organization, and therefore no action was even taken on the matter,” says Frank Neal, NHSC chairman.
     The confusion is due to an article in last week’s Walking Horse Report which stated that WHTA president Link Webb had confirmed that $1 of every NHSC entry would be donated to the WHTA to help fund AgWorks Solutions contract with the WHTA.  “That is incorrect and I apologize for the confusion,” says Webb.  “The trainers are the ones who have contracted the firm and with the help of our industry, we will continue to raise money to fund this much needed effort.”


The National Horse Show Commission (NHSC) is the unified effort of the Walking Horse Trainers’ Association and the Walking Horse Owners’ Association.  The NHSC’s mission is to actively protect and promote the welfare of the Tennessee Walking Horse.  The NHSC governs the judging, exhibition and inspection of Tennessee Walking Horses at horse shows across the nation.
