SHELBYVILLE, Tenn. – Visitors to the 2008 Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration this year will have the opportunity to take a test drive on the glide ride of the Tennessee Walking Horse. This event will be held for one day only on Saturday, August 30th at Champions Arena on the Historic Celebration Grounds from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.

World Champion Riding Coach Faye Lynn Coffey and others will be assisting riders and answering questions during this time as well. “I encourage and invite people to come out and share my passion for Tennessee Walking Horse.”

If you have never experienced the smooth gait of this truly versatile equine you are urged to come out and give it a try and dream of what it would be like to ride under the Celebration spotlight as a World Grand Champion. Even if you only want to be a spectator it will be a fun day with our four-legged friends.
