Tennessee Walking Horses Strut At Equine Affaire Ohio



Columbus, Ohio- Held April 12 - 15, 2012, this year’s edition of Equine Affaire Ohio attracted horse lovers from around the world and featured virtually every equine breed and discipline, including our very own Tennessee Walking Horse. Once again, the Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders’ and Exhibitors’ Association partnered with the Mid-Ohio Walking Horse Association to showcase our great breed at this world-renowned venue. Our breed presence included a breed booth complete with informative literature and gift shop items as well as two stalls occupied the entire time by stellar representatives of the Tennessee Walking Horse breed. Adding to the excitement, a membership drive was held which featured a saddle give away. The drive garnered approximately 30 memberships and the saddle was won by Mary Landes of Tipp City, Ohio. All of this created quite the attraction in the event’s Breed Pavilion. Additionally, two breed demos and a breed spotlight featuring the Tennessee Walking Horse were held. All in all, it was quite the weekend for the Tennessee Walking Horse.

Special thanks to all of those that brought their horses and participated in the promotion of our great breed. Breed demo participants included Cocoa’s Red Zone with Jason Crawhorn up for Lisa Bowen and Tiffany Crawhorn, Knightsbane with owner Jo Anne Hissem, Extra Classic with owner Mag Ranft and Wendy Kaufman, Legacy’s Keita with Terry Moyer for Joyce and Terry Moyer, Genius’ Classical Journey with Wendy Kaufman for owners Joyce and Terry Moyer, Pride’s Striding Generator with owner Emma Krock, Academic Blue Chip with Athena Lowe for Lori Snyder-Lowe, Whoopi’s Promise Angel with Jim Potter for Wendy Kaufman and A Titan with owner Lori Snyder-Lowe. Weanling Legacy’s Keita also represented the breed in the Youth Pavilion breed spotlight. All of the horses that took part in the demos spent time in the Breed Pavilion stalls greeting visitors. Joining them were Alen’s Grand Slam and Just Waldo H owned by Valerie Carlson and Jazzin’ Up A Storm owned by Mag Ranft.
