TWHF Releases Clarifying Letter

David Pruett of the Tennessee Walking Horse Foundation (TWHF) released the following letter on November 12, 2013.

To Whom It May Concern:

I would like to personally apologize for any confusion caused by the press release sent earlier this week

regarding the Tennessee Walking Horse Foundation (TWHF). Not to be confused with the Foundation for

the Advancement and Support of the Tennessee Walking Show Horse (FAST), the TWHF is the original

charitable foundation dedicated to the welfare of the Tennessee Walking Horse. Its mission is to encourage

support of, and funding for charitable, scientific, and educational projects for the welfare of the breed.

I assure you that the TWHF stands separate from all other industry organizations and is committed to

supporting the sound Tennessee Walking Horse.

After a period of inactivity, the TWHF was recently restructured to better fulfill its mission. We are a

501(c)3 charitable organization that wants to work closely with the Walking Horse organizations and clubs

around the country to promote the positive attributes of the sound Tennessee Walking Horse.

Its current board of directors consists of myself, Vice President Stephen Brown, Secretary/Treasurer Dee

Dee Miller, and directors Loyd “Buster” Black, Fran Cole, Harold Dean Givens, Dr. Linda Montgomery,

Terri Mosley, and Joyce Moyer. The newly revamped TWHF website can be found at

We are here to serve the horses and the people of our industry in a positive manner.

I would appreciate you and your group spreading the word about the revamped Tennessee Walking Horse

Foundation and placing our news release on your websites and in your newsletters. You will soon be

receiving our first TWHF Newsletter. If you have questions please feel free to contact me.

Our motto is “it’s all about the horse” and shouldn’t that always be what it is about?

Sincere thanks,

David Pruett, President

Tennessee Walking Horse Foundation

Cell: 615-351-5678
