The newly organized Performance Horse Association will hold its first board meeting on Friday March 1, 2013.  The board will consist of two representatives each from the Walking Horse Trainers’ Association (WHTA), Heart of America HIO, PRIDE HIO, SHOW HIO and Tennessee Walking Show Horse Organization (TWSHO).  Those 10 representatives will be joined by three independent representatives to the board for a total of 13 board members.

As part of the Performance Horse Association and the HIOs that joined, all licensed DQPs and judges will be licensed with the Performance Horse Association.  Any affiliations with Heart of America, PRIDE or SHOW made prior to the formation of the new association will be honored by the new unified HIO.

The board will release details for show management after the conclusion of the meeting on March 1.
