NWHA Announces New Regional Championship



Lexington, Ky. (March 10, 2009) – The National Walking Horse Association (NWHA) has added a new regional championship show for the 2009 season. The inaugural Dogwood Classic Regional Championship will be held at the Southeastern Show Arena in Unadilla, Ga. on May 22, 23 and 24, 2009.

Over the course of the three day event, riders of all ages from throughout the eastern seaboard and southeast and their naturally gaited walking horses will compete in a variety of disciplines that showcase the versatility of the breed. These include rail classes, over fences, showmanship, dressage, obstacle tests, pole bending, barrel racing and a crowd favorite—the water glass test!

“We’ve received a lot of requests from competitors in this area for a regional show closer to home, and we are pleased to offer this new addition to our competition schedule,“ says Vanessa Crowe, NWHA Executive Director. “We look forward to enjoying the camaraderie and friendly competition with naturally gaited horse enthusiasts at The Dogwood Classic this year and for years to come.”
