PRIDE Wants To Thank Everyone For Their Support During the 2011 Show Season

August 31, 2011

Dear Walking Horse Enthusiast:

PRIDE would like to take the time to update you on our HIO’s activities so far this show season. We affiliated somewhere around 45 shows in 2010. In 2011, Pride has affiliated over 85 horse shows and more are coming in each day. These shows include the North Carolina Championship Walking Horse Show, the South Carolina Championship Walking Horse Show, The Kentucky Fall Classic, The Walking for a Purpose Walking Horse Show and many other successful shows. I believe that the industry has supported PRIDE this year mainly because we have strived to treat every exhibitor, trainer and owner equally no matter who they are or how many horses they own. We are also pleased with the number and quality of our judges and DQPs. They have all worked hard to adopt the PRIDE philosophies of education and enforcement. PRIDE continues to work hard each day to improve our processes. We continue to educate the Walking Horse Industry of our Mission Statement and goals for the future of this industry.  Please go to our website www.pridehio.com for all the latest information on judge’s applications, dqp applications and horse show affiliation applications.

PRIDE would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has supported us so far in our initiative to lead the Walking Horse Industry to a new era. This includes all DQPs, Judges, Horse Show Managers, owners, exhibitors and trainers. We want to thank everyone for showing whether the USDA was present or not at the show. We must continue to show that we are dedicated to showing compliant horses and to eliminate the stigmas that have plagued this industry for years. We continue to strive to work for this industry and always welcome your input. We want to listen to the voices of our industry and deal with your issues. Please do not hesitate to contact us with your information, feedback or issues.

PRIDE would also like to remind everyone that we are still taking horse show affiliations for the remainder of the 2011 show season. If you have a show this year please contact us immediately at sam.momentum@yahoo.com to affiliate it with PRIDE. Please do not hesitate to contact us. Preparations are under way for the 2012 show season. We are looking forward to a great year next year and we are inviting everyone to join us as we enter a new era for the Walking Horse Industry. Thank you for your continued support of this great horse and the entire Tennessee Walking Horse Industry!

Sincerely,
Sam Hamilton
