TWHBEA Hires Kathy Potter


TWHBEA is pleased to announce that Kathy Potter has accepted a position as the new Youth/Performance Horse Coordinator. Kathy replaces Joni Jenne’ who has held this position for five years and has been promoted to Director of Marketing, Programs.

Kathy is an avid Tennessee Walking Horse enthusiast and brings 25+ years of experience to the youth program.  Kathy showed American Quarter Horses as a young child and switched to Tennessee Walking Horses as a teenager competing in 4-H.  While attending Morehead State University in Morehead, KY, Kathy showed American Quarter Horses, Hunter Jumpers and Saddlebreds in intercollegiate competition. 

After graduating from Morehead, Kathy returned to the Tennessee Walking Horse and has successfully shown in virtually every division offered - halter, equitation, trail, pleasure, park and performance.  She considers this a true testimony to the versatility of the breed.
