WHOA Introduces Novice Night

The Walking Horse Owners' Association is proud to introduce International Novice Night. A new show strictly for Novice horses and Amateur riders that have not won a blue ribbon in 2008. The show will be held Wednesday, September 24 at the Tennessee Miller Coliseum in Murfreesboro, TN and serve as a kick off to the International Grand Championship Performance Walking Horse Show to be held September 25-27. The Novice show will consist of 12 classes including a claiming class for horses priced under $30,000. The show will also have a live band that will perform before and after the show to encourage a fun relaxing atmosphere.

The Walking Horse Owners' Association is also taking steps to implement a program for 2009 designed for the novice type horse and rider. More information on this exciting new program will be released later this fall. "We are excited about International Novice Night  and the possibility of a future program that could help promote the $5,000 - $30,000 show horse. These horses and owners are a vital part of our industry and we hope to give them a place to compete and excel" said Mark Taylor, WHOA Sales & Marketing Director.
