WHTA and TWHBEA collaborate on Horse-Walk resource book



The last Trainer’s directory was published in 2016. Since that time our Tennessee Walking Horse Community has evolved. For 2022 the Walking Horse Trainer’s Association and TWHBEA are collaborating to expand the resources of our great horse. We see this as a “Horse-Walk” resource book providing
all the necessities to enjoy our horse days and horse show weekends.

We will be providing information on services, venders, things to do, places to eat, and places to stay for our out-of-town horse shows as well as our middle Tennessee shows. This list would include farriers, feed and hay suppliers, cleaners, banks, (hotels, B&B’s as well as short-and long-term rentals) and
attractions.

Our spectators, riders, and horses need to have the best presentation. We intend to have the best resources to make any newcomer or veteran look the best to include attire, salons, and tack shops.
Of course, this book includes our great trainers and breeding farms with all the talent that they hold
to enhance our great horse. The book will act as a guide to the Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders’ registry.

This industry would not be as visible without our great horse shows and associations around the country. This will be an opportunity for them to get their message out and keep it out there year-round.
So, what are we asking? We are asking for business’ to market in our “2022 Horse-Walk” that will be
given away first at our 2021 December Meeting and Banquets and then placed at our visitor points of
interest around Middle Tennessee. The cost is $1500 for back cover, inside front and back covers $750,
and individual pages at $500. The book will be 6” x 9” full color. We need all ads committed by September 15, 2021.

Last question that I am sure is on your minds: Where does the money go? After printing, the goal is
to fund a WHTA/TWHBEA joint show for 2022. For more information contact Thom Meek (TWHBEA VP of Trainers) thommeek@comcast.net (615-426-6199) or Mel Bryant(WHTA Office Manager)
