Tunica adds two new classes



By Sadie Fowler

The Tunica Fall Classic walking horse show is just around the corner and all eyes are focused on a good time and an even better horse show. 

The Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration organization, which puts on the show, announced Wednesday two new additions to the show’s class schedule. New to this year’s line-up is class 19, the Amateur Riders on Two-Year-Old Country Pleasure; and class 38, the Amateur All Day Pleasure. 

There is a total of 62 classes throughout three days of competition, Nov. 1-3, all held during evening sessions for the show. 

“The Celebration continues to offer new classes that are popular with its exhibitors,” said Celebration CEO Mike Inman. “We have been receiving requests to offer an amateur two-year-old class to evaluate support and the Amateur All Day Pleasure classes have proven to be popular at both the Spring Fun Show and Celebration, both earlier this year.”

Judges for this year’s Tunica Fall Classic are Jeanette Baucom, Jamie Bradshaw and Smokey Carswell. The event will be held at the Paul Battle Jr. Arena in Tunica, Mississippi. For more information, contact The Celebration office at 931-684-5915.
