TWHBEA Announces Amnesty Program



 

LEWISBURG, Tenn. (Dec 5, 2007) -- The Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders’ and Exhibitors’ Association (TWHBEA) is pleased to announce an amnesty program that eliminates the late penalties associated with registrations and transfers of Tennessee Walking Horses for the period of December 15, 2007 through March 1, 2008.  As with all registrations and transfers at the TWHBEA, post mark date is the determining factor for applicability. 

The newly elected executive committee met by conference call on the evening of December 4, 2007 to consider this idea that came from the membership meeting on Saturday.  After discussion and consideration of the potential financial impact, the motion to offer this amnesty period as an immediate benefit to the industry was unanimously adopted.   “This executive committee wants those that have avoided properly registering or transferring their horses to understand the importance of maintaining the integrity of the Registry and the value of proper papers, and thus encourages all Tennessee Walking Horse consumers to come forward during this time period and avoid the normal penalty structure”, said David Pruett, President.

            The Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders' and Exhibitors' AssociationSM (TWHBEASM), headquartered in Lewisburg, Tenn., is the oldest and most prestigious organization devoted to the promotion and protection of the breed. Founded in 1935, the breed registry was established to record the pedigrees of the Tennessee Walking Horse. Its goal is to maintain the purity of the breed, to promote greater awareness of the Tennessee Walking Horse and its qualities, to encourage expansion of the breed and to help assure its general welfare.
