The Walking Horse Report has been informed by the TWHBEA that our online story of July 27 on the executive committee meeting contained incorrect information. We reported "the investigation of Sand Creek Sales was discussed but a reporter from the Walking Horse Report was excused when an executive session was declared."

President Jerrold Pedigo and Executive Director Charles Hulsey met with Publisher David Howard earlier this afternoon and clarified the sequence of events. There were in fact two executive sessions declared but neither was for the purpose of discussing the investigation. The second executive session was scheduled to accommodate association attorney John T. Bobo's schedule and dealt with contractual matters.

The investigation was discussed in the regular course of the executive committee meeting in open session. The Report regrets the error and would like to publicly apologize to the TWHBEA and our readers.
