TWHBEA National Futurity to be a JACKPOT



 

LEWISBURG, Tenn. (Jun 22, 2007) –  Pat Stout, TWHBEAsm Executive Committee Vice President Horse Shows, announces her sincere appreciation to The Celebrationsm for their demonstration of confidence in allowing the TWHBEAsm  National Futurity to be held Wednesday, August 22, 2007 at the Calsonic arena.  This year the event will be affiliated with the TWHBEAsm Horse Industry Organization (HIO) under the TWHBEAsm sponsored Sanctioning Plan using the TWH RulebookTM and sanctioned judges.

The TWHBEAsm  National Futurity is the showcase for this breed’s youngsters and represents the richest purse of any one-day event in the Tennessee Walking Horse industry.  According to Mrs. Stout, “TWHBEAsm  will be offering a JACKPOT this year.  The Futurity will pay out 12 places in each class, but with a JACKPOT, if there are fewer than 12 entries in a class, the entire amount of prize money slated for the class will be distributed to the actual number of entries.”  TWHBEAsm  National Futurity will again be offering classes for weanling colt and fillies, yearling colts and fillies, and 2 and 3 year olds in Performance, Park, Traditional and Trail Plantation divisions.

The TWHBEAsm encourages you to get involved now and get your horses nominated before the deadline.  Due to the uncertainty of where and when the show would take place, the nomination deadline is being extended until August 6, 2007 and the weanling nomination fee will be $50 through that date.   As a service to our members and sponsors, TWHBEAsm  will be listing all nominated stallions on the web site and all horses that have been nominated up until this year that still need this year’s nomination payment to be included.    

The Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders’ and Exhibitors’ Associationsm, headquartered in Lewisburg, Tenn., is the oldest and most prestigious organization devoted to the promotion of the breed.  Founded in 1935, the breed registry was established to record the pedigrees of the Tennessee Walking Horse.  Its goal is to maintain the purity of the breed, to promote greater awareness of the Tennessee Walking Horse and its qualities, to encourage expansion of the breed, and to help assure its general welfare.
