UHDP Helps Launch First New Horse Show



The Unified Horse Show Development Program (UHDP) is pleased to announce its inaugural horse show to be financially assisted.  The Benefit Horse Show for Georgia Equine Rescue is the first show to be awarded a grant by UHDP, an arm of The Foundation for the Advancement and Support of the Tennessee Walking Show Horse (FAST).
 
This is a new horse show to be held at the Rockin’ S Arena in Buckhead, GA, on September 24, 2011.  There is a full slate of classes to showcase Tennessee Walking Horses in all disciplines.  “I am excited at the launch of this opportunity to assist horse shows and activities in the promotion of our great Tennessee Walking Show Horse,” said UHDP Chairperson Diana McMurtry.
 
The UHDP was formed to assist new horse show development as well as help existing shows that need financial aid.  The group will also seek to revitalize previous Walking Horse venues and help with walking horse events across the nation. The UHDP will focus its aid to horse shows primarily outside of the states of Tennessee and Kentucky and horse events and shows will have to apply to the UHDP for financial aid.  Applications can be found at www.fastwalkingshowhorse.org.
 
The program also includes a mentoring program.  UHDP will offer mentoring services to groups that need help with organizing their shows and putting together events. The UHDP and FAST proudly promote all show disciplines of the Tennessee Walking Horse.
