WHTA Youth Council Gears Up for 2016





SHELBYVILLE, Tenn. - The WHTA Youth Council met Saturday, Dec. 5, 2015, at Charlie Green Stables. Back before the Tunica Fall Classic, the Youth Council began rebuilding itself to become a more prominent fixture in the industry again. At the Tunica Fall Classic they hosted a drawing for a Yeti Cooler. That fundraiser was very successful and the proceeds were used to buy items for needy families during the Christmas season.  

Pictured with the Youth Council members is one of the participants who received help. Back in August, what began as a normal day for the Andrews family, quickly became a family’s worst nightmare. They received a call that four of their five children had been in a terrible accident. They rushed to the scene where their children were being life-flighted to Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital. Now after several months of being separated, they are all back under one roof. Jackson, the youngest, is paralyzed from the chest down and Alex, the oldest, has a long road ahead of him from his pancreas being damaged severely. 

Plans are also in the works to adopt a few more families this Christmas season. The group talked about plans for the future and are looking forward to reviving this once successful group. Nominations for officers were taken and will be mailed out soon for all members to be able to vote. 

“If you have a child in the Walking Horse Industry we want parents to encourage your children to come join us as we looking forward to a bright 2016,” stated Candy Green.
