Lewisburg, TN – The Tennessee Walking Horse drew a standing ovation on the final day of Road to the Horse in Franklin, Tennessee. Competing clinician Tommy Garland rode WGC Red Sunday’s Best during his introduction and received a huge welcome. As he rode around the arena, he threw walking horse t-shirts and high fived folks sitting in the front row. Through it all, Red Sunday’s Best performed like a champion, showing off the natural grace and athleticism for which our breed is known.

A hugely popular event, Road to the Horse, the nation’s foremost colt training competition, attracts thousands of spectators from around the country. TWHBEA was proud to, for the first time ever, have a presence at this prestigious event.

The TWHBEA booth was a popular stop for many. As at the Midsouth Horse Fest held earlier in the month, TWHBEA promoted its membership drive, which garnered great interest. People were encouraged to join or renew their memberships in order to be entered into a drawing for a Tennesseean Trail Saddle provided by National Bridle Shop. The drawing was held Sunday afternoon and the winning member was Freida Weldon Burdette of Hayden, Alabama. As a special bonus, Freida received a free weekend at Circle E Guest Ranch in Belvidere, Tennessee. Congratulations to Freida and thank you to National Bridle Shop and Circle E!

As part of the ongoing membership drive, all those who joined or renewed their TWHBEA memberships at Road to the Horse will also be entered in an additional drawing to be held in September. First place in that drawing is one free stud fee to Lined With Cash and second place is a free weekend at Circle E Guest Ranch. Anyone who joins or renews between February 15 and September 15, 2009 will be entered in this drawing. Also, remember that anyone who renews or joins during that time period can take 20% off on all purchases made through December 31, 2009 at National Bridle Shop (excludes saddles, carts and prior purchases) and 10% off at Circle E Guest Ranch.
