WHOA-TWHBEA Academy Show In Middle Tennessee



SHELBYVILLE, Tenn. – The 2009 WHOA-TWHBEA Academy show season continued in Middle Tennessee at Clearview Farm on Saturday, Jan. 31. Kathy Zeis of Douglasville, Ga., had the tough job of judging the 77 hard working entries. As always several individuals gave their time and energy to make this academy show a success. Carl Johnson sang the national anthem, while Stan Butt, executive director of TWHBEA announced. Harolene Willis, Denise Rowland, Marcy Wilson and Jan Anderson handled the entries and awards presentations. Chris Coffey served as the ringmaster. Also Mark Taylor, Paulette Ewing and Kristen Stegall lent a hand from WHOA, the VOICE Magazine and TWHBEA.

There was also a special presentation made during the show. The Tennessee Walking Horse Foundation thanked Sarah Dunn and Lynn Dorris for their donation of In Cahoots, a 10-year-old performance show gelding, to the TWHF Second Career Program. In Cahoots has been shown and loved by Dunn and Dorris since 2004 and the TWHF certainly appreciates the opportunity to assist in introducing "Hooty" to a second career. This horse has been placed in Leigh Bennett's Academy riding program and will help teach children and adults to ride and show the Tennessee Walking Horse. For more information on the TWHF Second Career Program or any other TWHF programs go to www.tennesseewalkinghorsefoundation.org.

Come and join in the fun and competition at these WHOA-TWHBEA Academy shows, Feb. 28, 2009, 10 a.m. at Tennessee Miller Coliseum, Murfreesboro, Tenn.; March 7, 2009, 10 a.m. at Waterfall Farms, Shelbyville, Tenn.; and March 21, 2009, 10 a.m. at the Academy Championships at Calsonic Arena, Shelbyville, Tenn.
