TWHBEA Rule Book



 

 

The Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders & Exhibitors’ Association (TWHBEA) is pleased to announce the official release of the Tennessee Walking Horse Rulebook.  For quite some time, there has been an industry need for a comprehensive and user-friendly rulebook specific to Tennessee Walking Horses. Many participants, across all disciplines, gave their time to see this rulebook become a reality.  A significant amount of research across many different breeds was conducted to ensure the development of the finest rule book possible. 

            TWHBEA, as the industry registrar, believes it is critically important that any Tennessee Walking Horse exhibited be judged according to one set of guidelines regardless of the city, state or region.  In order for the horse show records associated with the pedigrees of registered Tennessee Walking Horses to be meaningful, one set of criteria must be used for all.

            The Sanctioning Plan, which was adopted by the TWHBEA Executive Committee and approved and ratified by the National Board of Directors, will have an HIO (Horse Industry Organization) Committee composed of representatives from all sanctioned HIOs to govern the TWH Rulebook.

            All TWHBEA members will receive a TWH Rulebook with the August issue of the Voice magazine.  Additionally, the TWH Rulebook will be distributed during the National Futurity held at the Calsonic Arena on Wednesday, August 23, 2006.  The TWH Rulebook may be downloaded at any time from www.twhbea.com/pdf/TWHRulebook.pdf

            Contributors of the TWH Rulebook are: Ann Kuykendall, Marietta Gambrell, Iris Schumann, Sis Osborne, Jamie Hankins, Rhonda Martocci, Susan Shemwell, Dan Grover, Bobby Richards, Edie Wittenmyer, Linda Starnes, Kathy Zeis, Jerrold Pedigo, Nicole Carswell, Mag Ranft, Sherrie Szucs, Mary Beth Pruett, Jerry Perry, Pat Stout, Larry Arvin, Vic Gernt, Karyl Dunaway, Diana McMurtrey, John Prigg, Nancy Novato, Larry Lowman, Sid Baucom, and TWHBEA staff members Kristi Lane, Amy Spears, Stan Butt, Sarah Gee, Richard Hudgins and Shauna Clark.
