"Walking For The Future" message from Phil Snodgrass and Ken Estes



Walking for the Future is asking for support for their endeavor to provide horse shows and show the public the Tennessee Walking Show Horse is alive and well. With more shows planned for 2017, the inaugural show at Harriman, TN, September 16 and 17 is key.  

This show is affiliated with WHOA and is a double point show.  We are awarding $200 to the trainer with the most entries, and $100 to the owner/amateur trained exhibitor with the most entries. Friday the 16th, we will have an exhibitor's party with a BBQ dinner and a live bluegrass band.  Bring your horses or just come join in the fun.

View show program on WHOA's website and mission statement on Walking for the Future's Facebook page (Walk On). WHOA rules will apply.

Financial support can be made to Walking for the Future and mailed to Rhonda Bright (show secretary), P. O. Box 1085, Gate City, VA 24251. 

For questions or stall reservations, call Rhonda at 423-361-1912. All proceeds will be used to fund future shows.
