It Was A Spring Pleasure In Lewisburg



by Sara Engel

LEWISBURG, Tenn. – The Walking Horse Owners’ Association held its Spring Pleasure Jubilee Saturday, April 25, 2009, at the Marshall County Expo Center in Lewisburg, Tenn. Dee Dee Sale had the honors of marking the cards for the day’s event of 41 scheduled classes. Jared Carrier made the trip from Franklin, Ky., to serve as apprentice under Sale. Stan Butt, TWHBEA executive director, served as the announcer for the event.

Many trainers and exhibitors traveled from all around including from Florida and Kentucky to show and enjoy the beautiful spring weather.

The Walking Horse Owners’ Association sponsored this show as a charity show with a portion of the proceeds going to “Special Kids” of Murfreesboro, Tenn., which is an organization that helps families with daycare needs for special needs children. WHOA provided ribbons for first through fifth places and Montverde Academy Equestrian Center sponsored beautiful halters for the first place finishers.

"We were very pleased with this first event and appreciate the help of all the volunteers and WHOA/TWHBEA representatives for making this show possible and to all the exhibitors for supporting our shows," stated Mark Taylor, WHOA sales and marketing director.

The next WHOA event is scheduled for Saturday, May 2, at Waterfall Farms in Shelbyville, Tenn., and will include many classes from this show as well as more versatility classes. More information, a list of upcoming events and class schedules can be obtained at www.walkinghorseowners.com.
