Trade Days / Barn Party
Pleasant Valley Farms, Rutledge, TN The high, Saturday January 18, 2014, was 37 degrees but the cold didn’t keep the faithful from attending the Pleasant Valley Farms Trade Day / Barn Party. There was something for everyone that attended. Food was available for the hungry: chili, hot dogs and any type of dessert you could imagine. Hot chocolate and coffee were sold by the carafe to keep the cold folks warm. Trainers came from both far and away. Those in attendance were Cottonwood Farms, Chad Adams, Thunder Valley, Five Star Farms, Kemp Martin, Gabe Garren, Dick Ewers, Ailshie Stables and last but not least Pleasant Valley Farms. So as you can see there were many on hand to show their horses and hope to trade, sell or buy a new horse for a customer. To update everyone on the changes at Pleasant Valley; Brandon Derrick and Jimmy (Boomer) Evans are head trainers, Gene Pace is the farm manager and Alvis and Nikki Porter are the proud owners of the barn/farm. From everyone’s count there were about 35 horses and more than 100 people braved the cold to watch the action. Announcing the action of the day was done by both Kim Derrick and I, Tami Triplett. Bob Roach was also on hand to film all the horses and you will be able to see those videos on his site as well as postings on Face Book. There were six horses sold on that cold day; Ted’s Hank Williams, He’s A Desperado, Dollar’s Smooth Sailing, Star in the Making, and a couple more. So as you can see you missed a great opportunity for good food, fellowship, friends and watching horses show what they love to do. To those that attended a huge Thank you from Brandon and Boomer for attending the trade day / barn party and hope to see you again soon.

The Scoop For The Walking Horse Industry The IRS and Business Plans
By John Alan Cohan, Attorney at Law In recent years the IRS has ruled that a written business plan is important evidence tending to prove that you are operating in a businesslike manner. The Tax Court has said that in hobby loss cases you should have “some type of plan” for the venture. This applies whether you are involved in horse breeding, racing, other farming activities, classic car refurbishing, antique collecting, boat or aircraft chartering, and other areas traditionally under IRS scrutiny. The IRS takes the view that a written business plan demonstrates your businesslike concern for the success of the venture. People engaged in a hobby do not have business plans. One of the most important things that distinguishes a business from a hobby is the existence of a written business plan. There are numerous resources, some good and others not, to assist you in drawing up a business plan. It is advisable to have a business plan drafted by a professional, and the fee will depend on the complexity of the facts involved. Keep in mind that a business plan is one of the best items of evidence to show your true intentions. The IRS Audit Technique Guide asks revenue agents to ask for a business plan in horse and livestock audits, and the absence of a plan is evidence that the taxpayer is not operating in a businesslike manner. In audits, most individuals are caught off guard when asked whether they have a business plan. Some will say that their activity is very basic, that they know what they are doing, and that they don’t “need” a business plan. What is a business plan? The business plan narrates what your business is all about, what kind of opportunity you see, and how you intend to make money. It is a guide for carrying forward your idea into a successful business operation. A business plan sets forth the overall market that you are targeting, and how your product or services compare with those of others. The length and breadth of the plan will depend on how much time you want to put into developing it. The language of a business plan is usually simple and nontechnical. For many individuals, writing the plan is easy because of their prior experience in the field. For many, it is fun and creative. The main focus of a business plan concerns your marketing strategy and financial projections. You should narrate your market strategy, and state why you believe this activity can be profitable. You could include as an appendix copies of market information you have researched. You should also describe your competition and how you will be able to compete. You should set forth any competitive advantages that you have over other similar ventures. In financial projections you want to show how much money you will need to spend to get the business going, what equipment, inventory, and materials you will need to obtain, and when you expect to make a profit. There should be an indication as to your reasonable estimate of revenue. This is usually very difficult to project. Just do your best, perhaps with the aid of others experienced in the industry. Your financial projections of profit should be reasonable, not exaggerated. Preferably, your financial projections should cover a three- to fiveyear period. Some people hire an accountant or CPA to help prepare the projections, as this can further bolster the businesslike nature of the document, although you will still need to spend time developing the figures. Most people project operating losses for the startup phase of the activity, which can be from three to seven years or longer, depending on the particular activity.
Prepare your business plan now: don’t wait to get audited. It is too late to muster up a plan once you are audited. The IRS wants to see business records that are maintained in the ordinary course of your activity, not those that you might prepare once you have been notified of an audit. Ideally, your business plan will be written before you start the venture, rather than midway through it. If you are audited and you don’t have an existing business plan you should still prepare one, and admit that you have prepared it in connection with your audit. That is better than nothing. You can explain that the plan has always been in your head, and you thought it would be best at this time to reduce it to writing so that it can be clear how you forecast that this activity can be engaged in for profit.

South carolina petition decries PAST act MURFREESBORO, TN – The South Carolina Walking Horse Association recently submitted a petition to the Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders and Exhibitors Association in opposition to the so-called PAST Act—H.R. 1518 sponsored by Rep. Ed Whitfield (R-Ky.1). The specifics of the petition stated: • We…vigorously oppose the so-called PAST Act which, if passed, will lead to the slaughter of thousands of unwanted horses, will in no way address the issue of soring, will result in the failure to properly inspect thousands of horses, and which bans devices deemed safe and effective by the USDA for many decades. • Request that the board and executive committee of TWHBEA, our breed registry, do its utmost to promote sound horses in all disciplines of the breed, which entails vigorous opposition to the PAST Act. • Request that TWHBEA do everything it can to retain its existing directors and resist efforts to remove directors because of their promotion of the sound performance horse. • Request that the USDA improve and promote objective inspection techniques, which let sound horses show and which penalize real violations of the Horse Protection Act. The petition bore 75 signatures. “This is a great gesture on the part of the South Carolina Walking Horse Association to support the position we have long maintained relative to the PAST Act,” said Jim Cortner, chairman of the Performance Show Horse Association. “We’re hopeful this is but one of many organizations that will line up to bring an end to the emotional rhetoric of H.R.1518 supporters and start to discuss alternative legislation that includes more objective—and therefore, more accurate—testing of our horses.” PSHA was established to promote and protect the integrity of the Performance Horse as a sound competitor in the show ring. Further, the organization is intent on also promoting and protecting the culture and history of the breed. Our goal is to consolidate industry enforcement of the HPA and inspect all horses in a fair and consistent manner to protect the wellbeing of the performance horse while maintaining the integrity of the sport. -30Media contact: Phil Osborne email@example.com

The Scoop For The Walking Horse Industry TWHBEA Announces result of polling investigation TWHBEA announces the investigation of an unauthorized poll, which purported to be a TWHBEA product and was not. This investigation was conducted by the Enforcement and Bylaws committees and extended from October, 2013 through January, 2014. The Executive Committee has approved that report, which is posted at www.TWHBEA.com, and has issued recommendations based thereon. The combined Committees found that the purported “poll” was a “push poll”, which advocated for a specific outcome; was deceptive in several ways; was disseminated selectively; was created without the endorsement and knowledge of the Executive Committee; was mailed in violation of the rules of the Association and Tennessee law; misused and misappropriated the logo of the Association; and was thereafter used to misrepresent the rules of the Association. The mailing list was obtained in violation of internal rules and state law, and the present status of that list is in doubt, as a result of the lack of cooperation of the principals. TWHBEA has previously engaged in impartial polling on the socalled “Whitfield amendment”, the last such poll being conducted in early 2013. That poll, a copy of which is included in the report, covered a number of topics related to economics and other interests, and then asked questions unaffected by bias, photos, or pictures. The results show a very different majority opinion; a strong majority of those polled oppose that legislation, a result in accord with the December 2013 vote of the International Board and the Executive Committee. As a result of the acts and omissions of the TWHBEA members responsible for this deception against TWHBEA, its members, and the public, the privileges of Clant Seay, Pat Stout, and Fran Cole, as members of the Association, have been suspended, unless and until they comply with the investigation of the matter. In Ms. Stout’s case, she was also directed to comply with efforts to preserve and recover the mailing lists procured. The final resolution of this matter now rests with those individuals, who have been informed and encouraged to cooperate with the rules of this Association in determining the facts and appropriate remedies.
GWHEA Membership Dues Lowered for 2014 In an effort to accommodate our changing economic times and encourage more people to join, the GWHEA Board voted unanimously to lower membership rates for 2014. The new rates are listed below. Folks, you seldom see prices go down these days, so please take advantage of this opportunity to join or re-join GWHEA for 2014. The cost of mailing the Ambler has been spit out into a separate charge so that those who prefer to read GWHEA news and the Ambler newsletter on this website can save even more money by not paying postage. For those of us who like to receive a hard-copy of the Ambler newsletter, you can still have it mailed to your home by simply paying the cost of printing and mailing for the year ($15). We hope the new rates will encourage everyone to join again in 2014, and also encourage new members to join or previous members to rejoin. In these turbulent times within our industry, there is strength in numbers, and all TWH enthusiasts need to work together! Also, we have some fun activities planned for 2014: our Awards Banquet in February, a Spring Fling in March, several Versatility shows and of course, our one-night horse shows! Don’t miss out on these and other activities! Visit gwhea.com to download a membership form and see upcoming events news and much more.

The 27th Annual Mid-South Awards Banquet JACKSON, TN – The 27th Annual Mid-South Walking Horse Association Awards Banquet was held on Saturday, January 11, 2014, at the Carl Grant Event Center at Union University. The social hour began with lots of laughter, cocktails and an array of delicious homemade h’orderves. President Howard Hamilton welcomed guests once again to the MSHSA Banquet. Mr. Hamilton mentioned that the Mid-South Walking Horse Association was the oldest Walking Horse Association in the industry and that it went back 25 years. After that time, the organization was dissolved for a very short period of time and then was reformed and still continues today. Board of Director Barry Carter was called to the podium to give a moment of silence for the six members who had passed away during the year. They were Joann Dempsey, Russell Pate, Dr. Tommy Vinson, Bobby Beckham, Grady Clements and Jeff Givens. Mike Inman, CEO of the Celebration, spoke for a short time and mentioned that the Celebration had formed a new show called the Kick-Start Classic which is scheduled to be held at the Champions Arena (next to the Calsonic) on April 19, 2014. Mr. Mike Robey, Director of Development of Youth Town and Pepper Pratt were in attendance to thank all members of the association for their generous contribution of $8,500 that was raised at the Jackson Charity Horse Show held in July 2013. It was also discussed the following board members were elected for a 3 year term: Stephanie Carter-Wright, Anne Coffman, Sharon Carter and Vicki Benjamin who is finishing out Gary Gilmore’s term. Mr. Gilmore was elected the 2014 Vice President. The Mid-South had the privilege of honoring 17 World Champions and 9 World Grand Champions from the 2013 Celebration. The owners and trainers of these gifted champions were presented with gorgeous silver trophies. The Voted Awards winners were Ed Cotter the Sports Person of the Year, Ronnie and Angie Rushing won the Horizon Award, Jackson Charity Horse Show was the Show of the Year and Joe Clift was inducted into the Hall of Fame. Next the High Point Awards were presented. The High Point Juvenile Rider winner was Mary Elizabeth Wright. Taylor Walters won the High Point Amateur Rider of the Year. Jubilee’s Awesome Dream was the High Point Performance Horse of the Year and Fog AtThe Ritz was the High Point Flat Shod Horse of the Year.

The Scoop For The Walking Horse Industry PERSONAL STATEMENT FROM CHRISTY LANTIS I have recently become aware of an effort initiated by Fran Cole, a former TWHBEA director, to encourage director recalls, with me as the first such effort. I understand that there is no allegation of wrongdoing, but in fact the opposite, in that, as Performance Vice President 2013, I have acted to encourage the marketing and showing of performance horses, among all disciplines of the breed, as was clearly my charge by the duties assigned to that position. I believe it important that those who have been encouraged by Ms. Cole understand who I am and the position I am to fulfill in the remaining ten months of my term as a TWHBEA officer and California director. It is perhaps reflective of the diversity of the states of California and Tennessee that I have engaged in field trial riding, 4-H, trail riding, fox hunting, flat shod shows, padded shows, park performance, breeding, versatility, halter, and the promotion of youth activities, and love them all equally. The common denominator in all of these activities is that my horses have been loved, well cared for, and well trained. As a director from the great state of California, I represent owners that participate in these same disciplines, and others. It is important to note that there are many performance horses and performance horse owners in California, and I represent their interests as well as those that prefer only flat shod Tennessee Walking Horses. It has been purported by Ms. Cole, and others, that I am not ‘listening’ to my constituents, which is untrue. In fact, prior to this ‘test case’ removal of me initiated by Ms. Cole, I have only been contacted by members opposed to the Whitfield amendments. Those who attempt to demonize performance divisions and their shoeing rules, in the face of long-standing government studies and a lifetime of experience which shows that these regulations are safe and humane, simply ignore fact and science and have no traction with me. I do very much object to bad and inefficient inspection processes and abuse of any horse, at the barn, on the trail, and in the ring, and in my career have complied with the Horse Protection Act. One year ago, TWHBEA sent me to Washington to seek cooperative and efficient ways in which the industry and USDA could work together to help horses. For 2014, I have been elected to the Admin/Fiscal Vice President position. In this crucial time for TWHBEA, President Smith has pointed out that this organization, like any other, must market its product, do its job, and stay in the black to continue. My job, which has no direct relationship to the “Whitfield Amendment”, is essentially that pursuit. The TWHBEA Board has twice indicated its clear position on Whitfield; and yet, Ms. Cole indicates that her effort to remove me and other directors is about this legislation. She misunderstands and misstates the function of my office, the effect of the effort, and the effect of the proposed law. Whitfield is bad law, conceived in conflict and encouraged by misrepresentation. If passed, it would result in the slaughter and mistreatment of thousands of unused and cast-off horses; it will promote the continued abuse of horses by the elimination of inspections by those who know how; and clearly its own purported author, who did not draft this language, does not understand its import. The ambiguity in Whitfield is astounding, and Whitfield and others pushing this bill tell us that it will all be handled after the passing of the bill. Personally, I do not believe that is prudent and would leave our breed in a rulemaking process for possibly years, with uncertainty. However, this is beside the immediate point, as my focus in the next months is in the restoration of fiscal balance to our inclusive breed registry. There are no matters related to Whitfield on any present agenda.
I have absolutely no intention of resigning any position. I leave to those attorneys who know and correctly apply the law applicable to this situation, and who have no personal interest, to determine whether and how to proceed. I encourage those well-intentioned folks who have been led to believe that they are helping horses by lending their names to Ms. Cole’s effort to understand the facts, her motivation, and my position. I continue to promote a policy of inclusion as the best way to represent everyone. In the meantime, I will proudly perform volunteer work for TWHBEA and the presentation of this horse, and all of his unique abilities, to the world.
PO Final Foreign Substance 01.29.14 Understanding foreign substance The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), and others have attacked the compliance statistics of the industry, based on the percentage of foreign substances found via swabbing the hair on the pasterns (ankles) of horses. What the HSUS and USDA do not disclose in their attacks is that for a swab result to meet the current USDA requirements the area swabbed must be completely sterile, i.e., free of any and all substances and/or contaminates – a standard which is virtually impossible to achieve on a horse’s pastern. The Horse Protection Act (“HPA”) prohibits the application of foreign substances to a horse’s pastern which are intended to alter the gait of the horse, i.e., irritants, or mask the inspection process. The theory behind the USDA’s swabbing program – which the industry supports – was to identify “irritating, numbing, or masking” substances which had been applied to a horse’s pastern. However, two serious problems exist with the USDA’s current swabbing program, which make all of its results scientifically unreliable and useless for determining whether a horse’s gait has been altered and/or the inspection process masked. First, despite numerous requests from the industry, the USDA has failed to conduct any scientific study to identify a list of substances, or types of substances, which could be considered irritant or masking agents when applied to a horse’s pastern. Consequently, there exists no scientific evidence that many of the substances identified in the USDA’s results in any way irritate and/or mask a horse’s pastern. By way of example, the USDA has identified a positive finding for Vitamin E and cholesterol as constituting a violation of the HPA. However, both of these substances are regularly found in equineapproved care and treatment ointments and grooming products and there is no evidence that they can be used as an irritant and/or masking agent. Secondly, again despite numerous requests from the industry, the USDA has failed to establish any type of scientifically accepted “baseline” below which detected substances cannot be said to irritate and/or mask the horse’s pastern. Instead, the USDA has chosen to rely on a scientifically baseless “zero tolerance” policy. The results published by the USDA make absolutely no effort to identify at what levels a substance may have been detected. As a result, there is no determination if a substance may have been present at a level which could have resulted in an irritant and/or masking affect. Once again, the failure by the USDA to apply scientifically accepted principles to its swabbing program render the results useless. In 2013, the TWH Industry began its own swabbing program to detect irritant and masking agents and solicited the input and expertise of the AAEP and AVMA with no response. The industry continues to support objective based inspection methods, such as swabbing, which are scientifically reliable. However, the current swabbing program implemented by the USDA provides absolutely no evidence to determine whether there has been a soring violation of the HPA.

The Scoop For The Walking Horse Industry TWHBEA Recognizes Top Sires and Dams of 2013 Lewisburg, TENN – Each year the Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders’ And Exhibitors’ Association (TWHBEA) honors the top sire and top dam in each of two divisions created by the Association’s Breeders’ Committee to recognize horses whose offspring have proven successful in the show ring. One division is based on the “raw” or actual points acquired by the progeny of a sire or dam. The second division is based on the percentage points acquired by the progeny of a sire or dam. Additionally, TWHBEA awards an Outstanding Sire of the Year Award based on a 50% combination of actual points and percentage points as well as several other statistical categories presented each year in TWHBEA’s Sire Summary. The top Dam of 2013 based on actual points and and on percentage points was Spirit’s Delightful Dream. By Spirits Fascination and out of Delight Stuck Up Girl, she was bred by Rebecca Singleton of Apex, North Carolina, and is owned by Jennifer Batts of Rocky Mount, North Carolina. She has produced six offspring including this year’s TWHBEA Motivated Mares Flat-Shod Super Mare Count On Spirit O’ Three. The top Sire for 2013 based on total points was Jose’ Jose’ owned by Five Star Stallions of Wartrace, Tennessee. Jose’ Jose’ is by Gen.’s Major General and out of Stormy’s Ruby. He is a two-time world champion and two-time world grand champion. His offspring include, among numerous others, 2013 Tennessee Walking Horse World Grand Champion I Am Jose’ and 2013 World Grand Champions Suiza, Jose’s Centerfold, Jose’s High Society, Roll The Gold, Bel Air and Honey Badger. Jose Jose was bred by Dr. and Mrs. Rafael Rigual of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The top Sire for 2013 based on percentage points was Allen All Around owned by Leland G. Ritter of North Fort Myers, Florida. Sired by Commanding Delight and out of I’m A Doll, Allen All Around was bred by Donald Hendrix of Nahunta, Georgia. He is a multi-time International and National Grand Champion. His offspring include International and National Champion Allen Gottaround, TWHBEA World Versatility and National Champion All Around Midnight and top contenders Allen’s Heart Throb and All Around Masterpiece. The 2013 Outstanding Sire Award was presented to Lined With Cash. By Coin’s Hard Cash and out of Gen’s Silver Lining, he was bred by Crowley Farms of Waverly Hill, Georgia, and is owned by Five Star Stallions of Wartrace, Tennessee. His offspring include 2013 World Grand Champions Boure’, The Dixie Lineman, Lined Up At The Ritz and Line Item Veto. TWHBEA congratulates these horses, their owners and their breeders! The Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders’ and Exhibitors’ Association (TWHBEA), headquartered in Lewisburg, Tennessee, is the oldest and most prestigious organization devoted to the promotion of the breed. Founded in 1935, the breed registry was established to record the pedigrees of the Tennessee Walking Horse. Its goal is to maintain the purity of the breed, to promote greater awareness of the Tennessee Walking Horse and its qualities, to encourage expansion of the breed, and to help assure its general welfare.
