The Board of Directors for FAST (Foundation for the Advancement & Support of the Tennessee Walking Show Horse) is pleased to announce that Mrs. Sarah Smith has been hired as the foundation’s Director of Events. In her capacity, Smith will be responsible for the Foundation’s signature events, a two-day Spring Showcase horse show in April, a summer fundraising event, the annual Celebration 50-50 raffle and the Fall one-day horse show in November. 

FAST has been the leading organization in providing funding for the preservation and advancement of the show horse. Since its founding more than 10 years ago, the foundation has raised in excess of $3 million dollars to support research and development, scholarships, legal aid, marketing and promotion and horse show development. “The foundation is very pleased to welcome Sarah Smith as our Director of Events. Sarah’s personal knowledge and relationships within the industry and the middle Tennessee area will be an asset to our efforts to continue to grow the work of the foundation and consequently have the resources to be able to continue providing much needed support for the sustainability of our show horse,” said Dr. Kasey Kesselring, FAST Chairman.
