Affiliated with the WHOA-HIO

The Walking Horse Division will be conducted according to the current rules of the Walking Horse Owners’ Association HIO.  Every horse must be registered with the Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders’ and Exhibitors’ Association (TWHBEA).  A horse must be entered under its originally recorded name unless the name has been officially changed. It must be entered under the name of the owner of record or the registered farm name. All amateur and youth riders must be a member of WHOA for 2016.  All professional trainers must be a member of the WHTA for 2016.  Please refer to the WHOA Rule Book for judging and class specifications.  A copy of those rules can be found at or by calling 615-494-8822.


Attention Walking Horse Exhibitors:

The information required for entries in Walking Horse classes is the horse’s registration number, rider’s amateur or juvenile card number and the trainer’s license number. The DQP will not inspect any entry that does not have these numbers listed on the class entry sheet.

If a class is not designated as “Canter”, the class is a specialty class.

Classes are English or Western unless specified.
