Tennessee Walking Horses Impress In Poland



Tennessee Walking Horses proved to be a crowd favorite at Cavaliada, a prestigious equine fair, show and sporting competition held in Poznan, Poland. The event boasted approximately 25,000 visitors over four days, December 8 - 11, 2011. The Tennessee Walking Horse booth, which featured breed literature and videos, was in an ideal location and attracted numerous visitors.

The booth was manned by TWHBEA Owners/Exhibitors/International Vice President Stephen Brown, Polish TWHBEA members and breed enthusiasts. In addition to the booth, fair goers were treated to several Tennessee Walking Horse exhibitions. Horses were brought to the event by TWHBEA members and directors Danuta and Klaus Freiher of Poland and Russell Keyser and Denise Bader-Keyser of Germany.

The demonstrations took place at various locations throughout the fair with the horses being driven and ridden english and Western. An evening exhibition even included a gait comparison with other ‘Western’ breeds. Each performance garnered thunderous applause for our great breed. Overall Cavaliada was a huge debut success for the Tennessee Walking Horse.

Special thanks to all who participated.
