SHOW Announces DQP/Industry Interaction



The SHOW HIO will be holding a DQP Continuing  Education Seminar for all 10 DQPs that will work the upcoming Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration. This seminar will be an industry interactive seminar for all DQPs working the World Grand Championship Horse Show. The session will be conducted by SHOW President Dr. Stephen L. Mullins and DQP Coordinator Tony Edwards.

As part of the seminar, owners and trainers are invited to attend the training to obtain hands-on exposure to the inspection process and compliance standards. The seminar will take place at Winky Groover Stables at Saddlecrest Farm on Monday, Aug. 23 at 1:00PM CST. Horses will be provided by Groover, but trainers are welcome to bring outside horses to the training. If anyone has questions concerning a particular horse and the HPA, they are welcome to bring that horse or horses to this seminar.

The session is intended to be an interactive session and will provide owners and trainers the opportunity to ask questions and see first-hand how horses are inspected per the guidelines of the Horse Protection Act.  “We welcome all owners and trainers that would like to learn more about SHOW and our inspections to attend this informative session,” said Mullins.

The seminar will be sponsored by the Foundation for the Advancement and Support of the Tennessee Walking Show Horse (FAST). “This type of training and seminar goes directly to the mission of FAST, which is to promote and preserve the Tennessee Walking Show Horse.  We have promised our donor base and our supporters that their dollars will be injected into the industry to immediately help to promote our great show horse,” said FAST President Mike Inman.
