Spring Fun Show Judges Announced



The Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration announced it’s judging panel for the 37th Annual Spring Fun Show on Thursday.  The list is comprised of three respected members of the walking horse community.

Mike Carpenter of Franklin, TN, Brian Martin of Aubrey, TX, and Huck Moss of Trenton, SC have been selected to adjudicate the proceedings at this year’s Spring Fun Show.

Martin judged the Spring Fun Show in 2001, but it will be the first Fun Show assignment for Carpenter since 1987 and the first-ever for Moss.  That’s rather ironic, since they are two of the most experienced judges ever at The Celebrationsm .  Carpenter has judged the world championship show seven times while Moss was on the panel in 1991, 1993, 1997, 2004, and 2006.

“I’m very happy with the group we have been able to put together for this year’s show,” said Celebration CEO and show manager Ron Thomas.  “We’ve had a good deal of input from industry professionals and the individuals selected were names we kept hearing.”

“It was important for us to get an experienced panel this year,” said Thomas.  “With all the changes our industry has gone through over the past couple of years, having judges of this stature is important to the success of our spring event.”

The 2007 Spring Fun Show will feature 48 classes this year.  A full schedule of classes is available on The Celebration website (www.twhnc.com).

The Celebration Spring Fun Show is scheduled for May 24-26 at Calsonic Arena on The Historic Celebration Grounds in Shelbyville.
