WHTA Trainers' Show Relocates to White Pine for 2012



SHELBYVILLE, Tenn. - On May 25, 2011 the Walking Horse Trainers’ Association (WHTA) Board of Directors voted to recommend two potential locations for the 2012 National Trainers’ Show to the general membership.  Those two locations were Shelbyville and White Pine, Tenn. Ballots were mailed out to the General Membership with a deadline post marked date of July 1, 2011.

The ballots were counted Wednesday July 6, 2011 at the WHTA office in Shelbyville.  Mr. Carlyle Johnson, Ethics Chairman, oversaw the counting process.  All officers and directors were invited and encouraged to attend.  Johnson has certified the results. The WHTA Board of Directors held a conference call after the certification of the count to discuss the results.

The results of the vote were the following:
Total # of Certified Ballots - 135
White Pine - 96
Shelbyville - 39

After discussing previously the location of White Pine, the board decided once it was selected to move the dates of the show to April 12-14, 2012.  This change was based on the board deciding that the original dates of White Pine, March 22-24, 2012 were too close to the already scheduled Jackson, Ms. Show March 29-31, 2012.  The WHTA Board of Directors did vote to officially change the date and has contacted shows held on those dates in previous years to alert them to the change and to work with them on possible solutions.
 
The WHTA invites everyone to support their 2012 National Trainers’ Show.
