The Walking Horse Trainers’ Auxiliary met on Saturday, May 29, 2010 during the Spring Fun Show. Three main topics were discussed including the Money Tree Classic Horse Show, a Fall Festival and adding a community service category to the already existent Sunshine Committee.
The Money Tree Classic is the main fundraising event for the Auxiliary, which allows the organization to give scholarships, sponsor therapeutic riding programs and support the walking horse industry. The show will be held on July 2, 2010 at the Bedford County Agriculture Center. Layne Leverette will serve as the judge for the event, which will begin at 5:30 p.m. The Auxiliary is working hard to collect sponsorships for the show and would appreciate any help possible. Please email WHTA Auxiliary President Sarah Smith if you would like to help with the show.
A new event for the Auxiliary is in the works for a Fall Festival to be held after the Celebration in September. Plans are for a fun-filled day with music, a petting zoo, possibly a tractor pull and much more. More details will come in the next few months.
The WHTA Auxiliary will hold its next meeting during the Celebration and would love for anyone interested in joining this organization to come. Watch for more information to come about all the good things the Auxiliary has happening.
