Walking Horse Trainers’ Check History



Posted March 18, 2002
After the construction of the Calsonic Arena in 1988, Ron Thomas and several board members met with the City Council of Shelbyville in an effort to get their support of the Walking Horse Trainers’ Association holding their annual show in Calsonic Arena. The City Council has supported this endeavor from the very beginning. Each year they give financial support, $10,000.00 in 2002, as long as the Walking Horse Trainers’ Association holds their show in Shelbyville. The sponsorship by the City Council is extremely important to the success of the Walking Horse Trainers’ Association, and the City Officials realize the economic impact of having a show of this magnitude in our community.
