TWHBEA To Be Represented In Inaugural Parade



LEWISBURG, Tenn. - The Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders’ and Exhibitors’ Association (TWHBEA), the international breed registry for the Tennessee Walking Horse, headquartered in Lewisburg, Tenn., is proud to announce that it will be represented by the Metro Nashville Police Department Mounted Patrol in the Inaugural Parade for the 49th Governor of the great state of Tennessee, Bill Haslam. This same Metro Mounted Unit, which only uses Tennessee Walking Horses, has represented Nashville, the state of Tennessee and the Tennessee Walking Horse as goodwill ambassadors at many venues including the opening parade for the World Equestrian Games in Lexington, Kentucky this past fall.

The Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders’ and Exhibitors’ Association, which has horses registered in all 50 states and 35 foreign countries, was founded in 1935 and is the oldest and most prestigious organization devoted to the promotion and preservation of the breed. One of only two breeds of horses named for its state of origin, the Tennessee Walking Horse is known the world over for its beauty, smooth gait and easy temperament.

We would like to thank Sgt. J.D. Harber, Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders’ and Exhibitors’ Association Pleasure Horse Ambassador, and his unit for their upcoming participation and representation of the Tennessee Walking Horse.

The Inaugural Parade will take place in Nashville on Saturday, January 15, 2011 immediately following the official swearing-in ceremony.  The parade will begin on 4th Avenue next to the Nashville Municipal Auditorium. The route will continue down 4th Avenue to Union Street. Turning right on Union Street, it will proceed to 6th Avenue where the route will make another right turn. At Charlotte Avenue the route will hang yet another right followed by a left turn at 5th Avenue and completion of the route behind the Nashville Municipal Auditorium. The parade will be led by Governor and Mrs. Haslam.
