Dear Christy,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for contacting me earlier this week offering your assistance in keeping the industry informed. The commitment that you, personally on behalf of the Walking Horse Report, would like to work closely with me in 2007 to ensure that the TWHBEA communications, actions and relations are accurately and expeditiously reported to the show industry via your weekly publication and internet website is greatly appreciated. It is my desire to ensure the TWHBEA continues to provide clear and open information to all facets of the industry. I look forward to working closely with you in 2007.

In the interest of immediately starting this process, I wanted to advise you that I contacted Wink Groover as the new President of the Walking Horse Trainers Association first thing this past Monday morning. I invited Mr. Groover to meet with me and such a meeting took place at my office in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, Tuesday evening, 12/4. Mr. Groover and I had a good discussion that lasted about 2 hours. He expressed an openness and willingness to work with the TWHBEA and I look forward to working with him to address issues in the industry.

Christy, again thank you and I look forward to quickly progressing discussions with all interested groups to bring resolutions and solutions to the issues we presently face in the Tennessee Walking Horse industry.
