Walking Horses Well Represented At Alabama Horse Fair



LEWISBURG, Tenn.  – The Tennessee Walking Horse was once again very well represented at the Alabama Horse Fair, which was held January 21-23, 2011 at Garrett Coliseum in Montgomery, Ala. As has become custom, the Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders’ and Exhibitors’ Association (TWHBEA), represented by Marketing Director Chris Coffey, set up at the event to promote and answer questions about the breed.

Coffey reports that the fair enjoyed a great turnout and that TWHBEA gained 17 members at the event. People were encouraged to join the association via a saddle giveaway, which was ultimately won by Cathy Gottlieb of Mobile, Ala. TWHBEA would like to thank National Bridle Shop for their assistance with the saddle.

Other thanks go to TWHBEA Equine Welfare Vice President and Director from Alabama, Dr. Linda Montgomery, for her assistance at the fair and to the Tennessee Walking Horse breed demonstration participants Connie McAdams, Casey McAdams and Mojo, Bee McAdams, Chad McFay, Mandie McFay and Maggie, Jessica Bailey and Hank, and Josh Montgomery and Twiggy. It is through the efforts of people like these that the Tennessee Walking Horse will grow and prosper.
