TWHBEA Membership Has Its Advantages

 Because of the dedication and commitment of TWHBEA staff and members working at equine venues such as Alabama Trail Challenge, Road to the Horse, Equine Affaires, State Horse Expos, Extreme Cowboy events, TWHBEA World Versatility Show, TWHBEA National Futurity and the Celebration and programs like the Go! Gelding, Trail Distance program, Versatility program and others, 1609 new members joined in 2010. Of the 1609 members, 1155 joined as regular adult members with full privileges. 454 joined as first time members. TWHBEA appreciates its members and continues to work to maintain and improve programs and services for all. During these difficult economic times, it is rewarding to know that so many still recognize the value of being a member of TWHBEA
