On February 23, 2012, Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders’ and Exhibitors’ Association (TWHBEA) President Marty Irby and Executive Director Ron Thomas travelled to Knoxville, Tenn., to speak to the students of the Tennessee Collegiate Horseman’s Association. They spoke to the group about the Tennessee Walking Horse breed, the walking horse industry, TWHBEA and potential internship opportunities with the association. These future horse industry leaders were engaged and interested throughout the presentation. Irby and Thomas were happy to field many questions and impressed with the group’s knowledge. Thank you to University of Tennessee Equine Science Professor Grey Parks for coordinating this special event.
