Tennessee Walking Horse Classes
Affiliated with the WHOA-HIO
(This division is not recognized by the USEF.)
The Walking Horse Division will be conducted according to the current rules of the Walking Horse Owners’ Association HIO. Every horse (except All Day Pleasure) 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 exhibitors are required to be members of the Walking Horse Owners’ Association as an Amateur, Youth, or Professional. Riders may also purchase a temporary card for the show.
Please refer to the WHOA Rule Book for judging and class specifications. A copy of those rules can be found at www.walkinghorseowners.com or by calling 615-494-8822.
PERSONS ON FEDERAL DISQUALIFICATION CANNOT TRANSPORT HORSES TO THIS SHOW AND CAN PARTICIPATE ONLY AS A SPECTATOR.
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.
