A Walking Horse Affaire To Remember




The well-turned out Tennessee Walking Horse breed booth was a popular destination at this year’s Equine Affaire in Columbus, Ohio.


Extra Classic & Mag Ranft, Prides Striding Generator & Emma Krock, Just Gimme A Kiss & Katie Tanner, JFK’s Overly Delightful & John Davis, Genius’ Classical Journey & John Jaurez, Rock Solid Rev & Jim Potter, Vigor’s Dixie Chick & Allison Thorson, and Cocoa’s Red Zone & Jason Crawhorn represented the Tennessee Walking Horse in a well attended breed demo at Equine Affaire Ohio.

LEWISBURG, Tenn. – The Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders’ and Exhibitors’ Association (TWHBEA), along with the Mid Ohio Walking Horse Association (MOWHA), once again represented the Tennessee Walking Horse at what proved to be an Equine Affaire to remember. This year’s event, which ran from April 7-10, 2011, at the Ohio Expo Center in Columbus, Ohio, was one of the largest equine gatherings in recent history with approximately 100,000 visitors.

As has become tradition, TWHBEA and MOWHA had a prime location in the Breed Pavilion. TWHBEA provided the staff for the breed booth, which featured a wide array of literature, gift shop merchandise and membership opportunities, including a saddle giveaway for one lucky new or renewing member. MOWHA members provided the horses for the two stalls adjacent to the booth and conducted breed demos throughout the weekend.

The lucky winner of the saddle was first time TWHBEA member Pam Koontz of Mt. Victory, Ohio. Special thanks to National Bridle Shop in Lewisburg, Tenn., for their assistance with this valuable membership incentive. All in all, TWHBEA garnered an impressive 43 new or renewing memberships at the event.
