WHTA Motion Prohibits TWHBEA-Sponsored Clinics/Seminars



 

 

            In a unanimous decision of the Board of Directors, the Walking Horse Trainers’ Association (WHTA) voted to endorse the judges and DQP programs of the National Horse Show Commission (NHSC) after the Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders’ and Exhibitors’ Association (TWHBEA) released information to show managements throughout the nation that directly competes with the activities of the NHSC, of which the WHTA comprises one half of the organization.
            The motion, made by Ronnie Spears and seconded by Mickey McCormick, stated that WHTA or Board member Wayne Dean could not participate in any way in a TWHBEA-sponsored judges’ seminar or HIO clinic.
            Dean also serves as a TWHBEA Executive Committee member.
            “TWHBEA is directly competing against the WHTA by this action,” said Wink Groover, WHTA President. “We are a part of the NHSC and will work with horse shows around the country to provide certified DQPs and judges for their shows.”
            The motion made by the Board member via conference call this morning goes into effect immediately.
