TWHBEA Enjoys Successful Equitana

Lewisburg, TN - The Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders’ And Exhibitors’ Association (TWHBEA) was, once again, honored to present our great breed at Equitana. Held in March 16th  - 24th in Essen, Germany, Equitana remains the world’s largest fair for equestrian sport. TWHBEA has attended Equitana each time it has been held over the past 20 years. Over that time, interest in the Tennessee Walking Horse has grown. At the same time, word of the breed has spread so that now, instead of asking for basic information about the breed, fair goers are asking for test rides and more detailed descriptions of its capabilities.

At this year’s event, the Tennessee Walking Horse was exhibited three times each day, each time in a different arena. In addition, the breed booth was visited by countless fair goers. A number of people became new TWHBEA members and breed literature was distributed all around. “TWHBEA was thrilled to participate on one of the world’s largest equine stages and showcase our great horse. This opportunity was made possible through our association and membership with USLGE and our strong European membership,” states Owners/Exhibitors/International Vice President Jason Bachert. Special thanks to all of the volunteers that made TWHBEA’s presence a possibility. Monique van der Putten, Katrin Marg, Katja Alberts and Denise & Russell Keyser exhibited their horses while Nadine Moser, Claudia Willems, Ulrike Munnes-Jugert, Tom & Steffi Jörres, Denise DeNie, Fons Dingelhoff, Meike Obermann, Kristin Vahrenbrink, Lena Wiese, Maryan Zyderfeld, Bärbel Ossowski, Christina Schmilz, Karin Sclater and Christian, Heike & Franziska Gebhard manned the breed booth.
