Tennessee Walking Horse Foundation Reorganizes



LEWISBURG, Tenn. - The Tennessee Walking Horse Foundation, Inc. has been reorganized to further promote, encourage and develop awareness of the Tennessee Walking Horse. Stephen Brown, President of the Tennessee Walking Horse Foundation (TWHF), stated "the Foundation is a vital tool the industry can utilize to foster education to the general public and ensure the welfare of the Tennessee Walking Horse".

The Foundation, independent of the Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders´ and Exhibitors´ Association (TWHBEA), will function to meet the needs of organizations throughout the industry by gifts of grants to individuals, corporations, or associations which will promote goodwill, education and broad public awareness of the Tennessee Walking Horse.

TWHF has elected new officers and, among other things, is focusing on equine welfare.  "We are raising funds in an effort to assist and aid the TWHBEA Equine Welfare Division which is attempting to help the many horses who have been abandoned or at risk", said President Brown. 

The Foundation is a 501(c)(3), tax deductible, non-profit corporation and will solicit voluntary contributions of funds, public grants, personal or real assets, in kind or in cash, to be used in carrying out its objectives. Donations may be made to TWHF, P. O. Box 8164, Lewisburg, TN 37091.

During a recent meeting Brown was elected President and Dee Dee Sale was elected Secretary/Treasurer.  Other Board members are Lloyd Black Jr., Jack Heffington, Debra Jack, Christy Lantis, Harold Dean Givens, Terri Mosely, and David Pruett.
