Fulltonvale Horse Showcase!
The Fultonvalle Horse Showcase was this past Sunday May 24th in Strathcona County. The Drill Team from Star Walkers in Leduc AB attended to showcase the Tennessee Walking Horse. The Star Walkers team provided horses and handlers to give kids their first Walking Horse ride, completed two drill performances and had two horses showcase the versatility of the breed by competing in a Trail Obstacle Challenge. There were approximately 60 kids who signed up for the pony rides for this all day event. A huge Thank You goes out to everyone who participated, and I hope I don’t leave anyone out. Nicole Hirsekorn for organizing, hauling and creating the drill, Jessica & Leslie Bachman, Sienna Gullickson, Loretta Borden, Mike Fiest, Reagan Wasilka, Sande Hirsekorn & Koren LeVoir.
Open letter from our President to TWHBEA regarding Mane Event clinician Connie Waldo.
Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders' & Exhibitors' AssociationLove getting emails like the one below! Thank you Connie Waldo for representing this great breed, TWHBEA and the USA.
I wanted to send you a qu...ick note and if you could also forward it to who ever it may pertain to that would be greatly appreciated.
On April 24,25 and 26 our club Tennessee Walking Horse Association of Western Canada had the privilege of hosting Connie Waldo as a guest Clinician at the Mane Event held in Red Deer Alberta Canada.
Connie went above and beyond lending a helping hand, after being on an airplane all day and being exhausted from travel to helping our club unload horses, tack and feed.
She was bright and chipper early the next morning during her first clinic which had great attendance we had 8 Tennessee Walkers in all the clinic's along with a grand stand full of spectators.
Being the friendly Canadians we are we wanted Connie to get the full Canadian experience by waking up to a nice blanket of snow on the Saturday morning.
Connie stayed around after each of her clinic's answering questions and helping out when ever possible. It truly was a pleasure hosting Connie at the 2015 Mane Event.
As president of TWHAWC I want to thank TWHBEA for all your support in making this years event a success, without this partnership we couldn't promote this breed that we have all come to know and love
Dedicated to promoting the Tennessee Walking Horse breed in Western Canada.
