Tenda to Sponsor TWHNC Equitation Division

Tenda® is pleased to announce it will partner with the 82nd annual Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration (TWHNC), sponsoring all classes in the Equitation Division. The event will take place Aug. 26 – Sept. 5 in Shelbyville, Tenn.

Each class participant will receive a 32 oz. bottle of Tenda Sheen™ shine, conditioning, and detangling spray. Winners of each class in the equitation division will receive a Tenda product package including Tenda Original Performance Poultice and TendaPod™ concentrated equine and pet shampoo pods. The Youth Equitation Grand Champion will also receive a $1,000 scholarship for post high school education.

“Growing up competing in equitation helped prepare me for the life and career I lead today, being involved with Tenda,” says Allison Thorson, a 78-time TWHNC World Grand Champion and winner of more than 200 equitation classes. “Equitation demands attention to detail, grit, and determination.

“The obstacles and adversity I faced to prepare for this class as a kid helped instill the fortitude and skills I need to succeed in the equine and pet care business. It’s crucial that we as adults, friends, parents, trainers, and coaches keep reiterating and supporting the fact that anything is possible with hard work and perseverance, whether in the saddle or working toward career goals.”

Tenda has been serving equine athletes for more than a half century, and like the TWHNC, the company’s longstanding presence in the horse care market underscores its commitment to quality and performance in the equine industry. “I’m proud to be associated with a brand that has proven itself over and over with high performance, innovative products that meet the rigors of training and performance, along with addressing everyday needs we deal with as horse owners,” Thorson adds.

Tenda has been serving the performance horse industry for half a century with a primary goal of developing and manufacturing products that promote and improve the overall health, soundness, performance and well-being of equine athletes. Tenda products include, state-of-the-art wound care treatments, equine nutritional supplements, leg and muscle care therapies, healing salves, hoof care preparations and topical commodities; along with shampoos, conditioners and grooming products for horses and dogs. Tenda products are in use at racetracks, show rings, training facilities and backyard barns across the country and around the world. For more information, visit
