WHTA Prepares For 2012 Trainers' Show



SHELBYVILLE, Tenn. – The Walking Horse Trainers’ Association (WHTA) Board of Directors held a conference call on December 19, 2011 to prepare for the upcoming 2012 National Trainers’ Show to be held in White Pine, Tenn.  The 2012 will be held April 12-14, 2012, approximately one month later in the calendar than its traditional date.

The WHTA membership voted previously this year to move the 2012 Trainers’ Show to White Pine, Tenn from Shelbyville.  The WHTA board unanimously voted on the conference call to follow the membership vote and continue preparations in White Pine.  The WHTA will continue to release information regarding hotels, sponsorships and class schedules after the first of the year.

The WHTA urges all of its members to make plans to attend the 2012 National Trainers’ Show.  The National Trainers’ Show is the largest fundraising effort of the WHTA and its proceeds are vital to the operation of the association.  The 2012 National Trainers’ Show will be affiliated with the SHOW Horse Industry Organization (HIO).
