Guests at the well-attended event included TWHBEA President Marty Irby, who presented the Ambassador with a one year membership to TWHBEA and a copy of Tennessee Walking Horse: An American Tradition, State Senator Jim Tracy and several state officials. Gin Martini was generously donated by Bo Teague and Rachel Jernigan.
