TWHBEA to Decide Fate of Stout Under Executive Session



The Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders' & Exhibitors' Association (TWHBEA) Executive Committee is meeting today regarding the actions of Horse Shows Vice President Pat Stout.  During the meeting the discussion has been heated at times and two motions have been made and withdrawn.  First Mike Hicks made a motion to remove Stout from her position.  He later withdrew the motion in order to hear from Stout.

Stout hasn't said much as she has deflected mainly to her attorney Clant Seay.  She has said however that she had the authority to poll the membership given her position as VP of Horse Shows.  When asked then if TWHBEA would get the results, Stout answered emphatically, "I own the results, not TWHBEA."

Rob Cornelius later made a motion to suspend Stout from the Executive Committee, board and voting rights until the investigation is completed on the matter.  Cornelius later withdrew the motion in order to make it in executive session after the lunch break.

WHR will update once the decision has been by the Executive Committee and a full story outlining the arguments will be posted later.
