TWHBEA Planning Show



    

      (September 21, 2006,Copyright 2006, Walking Horse Report)  Rumors have been circulating for the past week that the Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders' and Exhibitors' Association was considering having a horse show to crown a 2006 World Grand Champion Tennessee Walking Horse.  According to reliable sources, those rumors are now fact as the Executive Committee of the TWHBEA is planning a two-day show on Thanksgiving weekend, November 24-25 at the Miller Coliseum in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.

     The last class will be to crown a 2006 World Grand Champion, as recognized by the TWHBEA and will reportedly pay $60,000 in prize money.The TWHBEA appointed a show committee chaired by Edie Wittenmyer, Vice President of the Horse Show division. Judges reportedly have been hired although contracts have yet to be signed. 

      The Report has received unofficial word that the three judges are Nicole Carswell, Brian Martin and Allen Foreman.  Jeff Willis reportedly turned down the opportunity to judge the show.  Judges are reportedly being paid $3,500 for the two day show. 

     The Report has confirmed that those dates have been reserved at Miller Coliseum even though a contract has yet to be signed.  Friday morning an article appeared in the Nashville Tennessean about the show but focused primarily on the fact that Private Charter, owned by the suspended Mike Walden, would be allowed to show according to TWHBEA President Jerrold Pedigo.

Additional details will be announced as they become available.
