TWHBEA and The Report Meet on High Point Program

Copyright 2006 Walking Horse Report

The Walking Horse Report and the Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders' and Exhibitors' Association have agreed to meet to discuss the possibility of a joint high point program. The Report has operated a high point program, the High Point Report, for three years and TWHBEA has formed a committee to develop a program. Committee members are Frank Eichler, Beverly Greenup, Walt Chism, Don Beatty, Pat Stout, Linda Garrard and Jane Hardy Meredith.

“We have already had several conversations with TWHBEA Committee Chairperson Jane Hardy Meredith and we are excited about the opportunity to work with TWHBEA on this program,” said Christy Parsons, Report Publisher. “Hopefully, we can come up with a program that is good for the overall industry and both organizations.”

“We are excited to be working closely together on this important National Program, the NHPCP. We want this program to be good for the entire country, for horses in all disciplines. The program will have regional awards as well as national awards. It will feature an Equitation Challenge program, a continued Versatility program, and various additional programs to come,” explains Meredith.

TWHBEA President Jerrold Pedigo said, “We are actively working on putting together a high point program and look forward to further discussions with the Report. Our Board wants what is best for our membership and the industry as a whole.”

The Report has also had discussions with the Walking Horse Owners Association about their high point program and ways to work together to eliminate the duplication of efforts. “We are looking forward to working with Tommy Hall and WHOA to assist in their expanded high point program,” said Parsons.
