TWHBEA On The Way To Road To The Horse



LEWISBURG, Tenn. – Once again, the Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders’ and Exhibitors’ Association (TWHBEA) will enjoy prime exposure at one of the nation’s premier horsemanship competitions – Road To The Horse. This year’s event is scheduled for February 25–27 at Miller Coliseum in Murfreesboro, Tenn. Dubbed “The Legends Meet In 2011,” this year’s Road To The Horse competitors include world-renowned clinicians Pat Parelli, Chris Cox and Clinton Anderson. With a lineup like this, it’s no surprise that the event is sold out.

As an event sponsor, TWHBEA will garner national and international media exposure through public address announcements during the contest, have multiple banners on display in the competition arena and have premium booth space from which to promote the breed to event attendees. A full array of breed literature will be available at the booth as well as an updated selection of gift shop merchandise. Additionally, TWHBEA will have a saddle giveaway at the event for those that join or renew their memberships. Special thanks, as always, to National Bridle Shop for their assistance with the saddle.

This year TWHBEA will be joined by representatives from Stolen Horse International, who will be on hand both in their own booth and at the TWHBEA booth to spread the word about combating the devastating tragedy of horse theft. Representatives will be available to answer questions about theft prevention and recovery. Stolen Horse International is one of the horse industry’s greatest resources when it comes to battling this all-too prevalent crime.

The 2011 Road To The Horse promises to be an exciting and beneficial event for TWHBEA. With visitors from all over the world and extensive media coverage, it is an excellent opportunity to promote the versatility of our great breed.
