WHOA celebrates 40th Gala & Awards Banquet



WHOA celebrates 40th Gala & Awards Banquet

By Linda Scrivner

ARRINGTON, Tenn. – Valentine’s Day and honoring horse owners with an annual banquet always come close together and highlight February in the walking horse industry. This year the Walking Horse Owners’ Association (WHOA) hosted a fabulous banquet with the largest crowd ever with 300 attending on Saturday, Feb. 9, as a way of honoring those who excelled in 2018. The annual banquet was very special this year since it was their 40th anniversary and was hosted at a tremendous new venue, The Barn at Sycamore Farms. 

Mark Farrar served as Master of Ceremonies once again and welcomed guests for the evening, also expressing gratitude to the many workers among WHOA shows as well as those who helped put the evening on, including WHOA executive director Tommy Hall and many volunteers.

Cocktail hour kicked off the evening at 5 p.m. followed by the Versatility, the Register of Merit and the Kentucky Incentive awards. Presentations were also made to the 2018 Diamond Sponsors.

Dinner was served and the National High Point and WHOA Quest Awards followed. The evening also featured a popular silent auction and a 50/50 Giveaway Drawing, which took place at the end of the night. 

A combined General Membership and Board of Directors meeting was held on Friday evening that kicked off the festivities, in the Mary Miller Room at the Tennessee Miller Coliseum in Murfreesboro.
