Fun Show…Fun Times SHELBYVILLE, TN-The 42nd Annual Spring Fun Show was held May 24-26, 2012. The show was held in the Calsonic Arena in Shelbyville, TN. The show started promptly each night at 6:00 p.m. with the presentation of the American flag. The 53 classes were judged by the Honorable Jamie Bradshaw of Union Grove, Alabama, Ray Gilmer of Toone, Tennessee and Andy Simpson of Big Rock, Tennessee. The photographer for the event was the fabulous Shane Shiflet. You may view the proofs at The show was affiliated with S.H.O.W. HIO and the USDA was in attendance each night. This show is ranked as one of the top horse shows in America after the Celebration. The Spring Fun Show is always held on the Thursday, Friday, and Saturday prior to Memorial Day. The show offers fans a sneak preview of the horses which will perform at the Celebration later in the summer. The competition this year was fierce with over 125 entries making the gate call just on Thursday night alone with the numbers increasing each night. Vendors from all over were set up for shopping for spectators. The number of entries entered weren’t just up, but the arena seemed to have so many spectators not only exhibitors, trainers and owners, but also locals coming out to support their love for the Tennessee Walking Horse! This great breed has such a tremendous economic impact on our community and surrounding areas of middle Tennessee! Thursday night competition started out with the Model Pleasure class. The winner in this class, by no surprise, was World Champion, Trigger Treat, with Jeff Givens handling for proud owner, Jo Ann Dowell. This duo continues to treat the crowd! Dr. Judy Moore lead Jazzman’s Legend to the reserve tie. Another very exciting class was the OwnerAmateur 15.2 & Under Stallion class. Walking away with the top honors was Tam Brogdon aboard her World Grand Champion, Boure’, who is now under the direction of Knox Blackburn Stables. Reserve in this fine class was Sherri Pollack on I’m P Diddy. Friday night’s competition was stiff with one of the most thrilling classes of the night being the Owner-Amateur Youth 12-17 Mares and Geldings class. These youth riders have top notch horses and ride hard. Cadillac’s Bum

World Grand Champion, I’m Copperfield, put on another magical performance to claim the Walking Horse Championship title with Knox Blackburn in the irons for the Mike Walden Family. and Lilly Waites spun into the winner’s circle to park for the blue ribbon photos before revving up to make the victory lap! The World Champion team of Be Cool with Jaclyn Compton stepped out of the 11 & Under division and showed off to claim the reserve tie in this tough class. Jeff Smith and World Grand Champion, Play Something Country, were on the right chorus to the winner’s circle after a spectacular show in the Owner-Amateur 15.2 & Over Stallion class. Reserve only went to the World Grand Champion duo of Wallstreet and Clay Mills from Mt. Airy, North Carolina. Saturday night everyone dressed up for championship competition and brought their best to the ring. There were two great Youth classes on Saturday night, both the Youth 11 & The Scoop / Page 17

The final class of the night was what everyone had waited to see and this year the Riders’ Cup Walking Horse Championship class left the crowd pleased with the performance they saw. Five top entries made the gate call and were announced individually into the ring. The roses and blue ribbon along with all the fame and applause went to World Grand Champion, I’m Copperfield, and Knox Blackburn, for the Mike Walden Family from Ooltewah, Tennessee. This duo recently won the Gulf Coast Celebration in Panama City Beach, Florida on his quest toward World Grand Championship acclaim. Reserve in this fine class was the Bill and Karen Bean entry, Dark And Shady, with Jimmy McConnell in the irons. Jimmy always knows how to bring the crowd to their feet with his outstanding showmanship.

The gorgeous team of Lined Walking and Lilly Waites made a flawless performance to claim the blue ribbon in the Youth Walking Pony Specialty class.

The SCOOP congratulates all the winners from the 42nd Annual Spring Fun Show and was proud to be a part of celebrating your blue ribbon moment.

42nd Annual Spring Fun Show

Pollack’s Silver Spur Ranch entry, Jazz Country, and Tim Smith were the Young Trainers’ class champions, followed by Walkin Dollar and Justin Jenne’ for owner Darrell Frazier. This is always a fun class because the trainers can’t be over the age of 35 to compete in this class. The crowd stood up and cheered louder than they have all year when the Rider’s Cup Three Year Old Stallion class entered the ring. The Mississippi team of Jose It Ain’t So and Jonathan Watts made owner, Deborah Williams, very proud as they exited the ring with the roar of the crowd. Following very shortly behind was the World Grand Championship pair of I Am Jose with Casey Wright in the irons for Bill and Debbie Woods. This duo also left with a standing ovation.

COMPLAINT FILED AT TWHBEA AGAINST DANE Keith Dane, a Humane Society of the United States official and an outspoken critic of horse soring, is himself in the hot seat with his fellow Tennessee Walking Horse owners. Dane, a walking horse owner who sits on the Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders’ and Exhibitors’ Association board, faces an official complaint from one of the association’s members. It could not be determined whether it had to do with his role in revealing horse abuse by releasing a video that aired on national television. The details of the complaint, including when it was filed, are unknown. The private association considers the complaints confidential. But Marty Irby, the association’s president, confirmed Wednesday that Kathy Zeis, a member from Georgia, filed the complaint. The association has scheduled a June 28 hearing on the matter. Zeis declined comment. “They told me it was confidential and I am going to respect that,” she said by telephone. Dane, the Humane Society’s director of equine protection, said Wednesday afternoon that he has not yet spoken with his attorneys about the complaint. “Until I have spoken with them, I would rather not comment,” Dane said. Founded in 1935, the breeders’ association is the oldest Tennessee Walking Horse organization and is the official breed registry for the horses. Although the details are unknown, word of the complaint comes as Dane has become the public face of the Humane Society’s campaign against soring within the walking horse industry. Soring is the practice of pouring caustic chemicals, cutting or otherwise abusing a horse’s hooves and lower front legs to induce an accentuated high step. The gait, known as the “Big Lick,” is prized at Tennessee Walking Horse competitions.

The Humane Society arranged for an undercover investigator to be hired at a West Tennessee barn to film soring and other abuses. The group turned the video over to federal prosecutors and it led to a 52count indictment against nationally known trainer Jackie McConnell. Earlier this month, McConnell pleaded guilty to one count of the indictment — felony conspiracy to violate the Horse Protection Act, which makes it illegal to show or transport a sored horse. The Humane’s Society’s video also was released to a national audience. It first aired on ABC News’ Nightline on May 16. Dane has spoken out about how he believes soring remains widespread throughout the walking horse industry. But some walking horse owners have criticized Dane and the Humane Society over its tactics, questioning why the Humane Society investigator did not try to stop McConnell when the abuses were under way at his Collierville stables. Dane has defended the use of the undercover video. What the Humane Society did was legal and might have been the only way to uncover abuses with animals in the agriculture industry, he said. Rep. Andy Holt, R-Dresden, and state Sen. Delores Gresham, RSomerville, introduced legislation in the General Assembly this year that would have made what the Humane Society did illegal. The bill did not pass. “The alternative would be to not know what is going on the shadows,” Dane said in a recent interview with The Tennessean. “As long as it is legal, we will continue to conduct these undercover investigations because we feel the public has a right to know.” Duane W.

The Scoop For The Walking Horse Industry What A Bum Obituary On Saturday May 26, 2012, Tennessee Walking Horse What A Bum passed away at D & R Stables from complications of colic. He was a beloved 19 year old show horse and the best friend a girl could ever ask for. Bum didn’t act like a horse; he had a very unique personality that made him almost human. If you asked him a question, he would talk to you and let you know exactly what he thought. The love for his carrots was what made him such a character; he would perk up his ears and follow you anywhere as long as you had that carrot. After all the ribbons from the shows, his favorite prize was the bag of carrots waiting for him at the trailer after he gave you a kiss. Bum will truly be missed inside and outside the ring; the barn will never be the same without him. He was a great learning horse for riders of all ages, with his kind stature and gentle gait. Bum was always there for his owner, Eryka Friant, through all the difficulties of life with his head on her shoulder for comfort. If you needed some love, all you had to do is walk in his stall and talk to him. Thank you, Randy Young, for taking great care of him through all these years. You have been a wonderful trainer and friend to us and Bum. I know it is a great loss to you as well as D & R Stables. Also, a great thanks to Dr. Denton Colwell, DVM for doing everything he medically could to take good care of Bum while he was sick. I know he is in a better place now and eating as many carrots as he can scarf down. I love you, Bummy, and we all will miss you!

SUSPECTED EQUINE HERPES CASES REPORTED IN TENNESSEE NASHVILLE, Tenn.- The Tennessee Department of Agriculture has received reports of suspected cases of Equine Herpes Virus (EHV-1) infection in horses that participated in a recent trail ride in Tennessee. Six to 8 suspected cases of the neurological form of EHV -1 have been reported to the state veterinarian’s office. Horses are being treated, isolated and monitored by their attending veterinarian. The horses may have been exposed to EHV-1 during the Bucksnort Trail Ride held April23-30 in Humphreys County. The event drew approximately 100 horses from multiple states. The movement of horses that attended the event is being restricted on a case by case basis.

TDA animal health officials are working with event organizers, neighboring state veterinarians and private veterinarians to identify other horses that may have been exposed or are exhibiting symptoms. As a precaution, State Veterinarian Charles Hatcher recommends that horse owners who participated in the Bucksnort event work with their veterinarian to restrict movement and to monitor their horses. Hatcher also recommends that isolation and monitoring continue for 28 days if any clinical signs of disease are observed. Veterinarians should report suspected neurological cases of EHV-1 to the State Veterinarian’s office at 615-837-5120. Equine Herpes Virus is highly contagious among horses but poses no threat to humans. The symptoms in horses may include a fever, nasal discharge, wobbly gait, hind-end weakness, dribbling of urine and diminished tail tone. The virus is easily spread by airborne transmission, horse-to-horse contact and by contact with nasal secretions on equipment, tack, feed and other surfaces. Caretakers can spread the virus to horses if their hands, clothing, shoes or vehicles are contaminated. The virus can cause aborted foals and can be fatal in some cases. The State Veterinarian also recommends that horse owners practice good biosecurity such as using your own trailer and equipment, not letting your horses touch other people’s horses, disinfecting shoes and equipment, washing hands after helping others with their horses and limiting access to your farm. A downloadable brochure about horse biosecurity is available from the USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Services at http:// /publications/ animal health/ content/ printable version/HorseBi oSecurity final.pdf.

Introducing The Year Of Midnight Sun Lewisburg, TN - At the Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders’ and Exhibitors’ Association (TWHBEA) Executive Committee meeting held May 24, 2012, a motion was passed to designate the next year “The Year Of Midnight Sun.” This special period of recognition will run from May 26, 2012 through May 26, 2013 and will mark the last year of the 10-year contract with Dixie Plantation that brought the beautiful Midnight Sun statue to the TWHBEA Commemorative Garden. During this dedicated year several special initiatives devoted to the great stallion will be launched including articles and photos in the Voice Magazine as well as on the TWHBEA website and special Midnight Sun centered activities at TWHBEA events. Thought by many to be the greatest Tennessee Walking Horse, Midnight Sun was often referred to as the Stallion of the Century. TWHBEA looks forward to honoring this great horse over the next year.

RUSTY WALLACE AND SAM MARTIN RACED INTO THE WINNER’S CIRCLE Toccoa, GA – It was a mild day on June 2, much to the delight of exhibitors and spectators, when the Northeast Georgia Classic Horse Show was held in Toccoa, Georgia. The husband and wife team of Gene and Jane Frye did an excellent job in the center ring. Gene kept the show moving as the announcer and Jane entertained with her beautiful organ music. Newton Parks from Murfreesboro, Tennessee, judged the qualities entries. With over 200 spectators, there were plenty of fans to cheer on their favorites. Ringmasters, Jimmy Brown and Joel Brookshire, did a great job watching over the ring and lining up the horses. The center ring secretary was Georgianna Allen; show manager, Jerry Elrod; and Pat Smith was the show secretary. The proceeds from this show benefit the Shriners’ Children Hospital Fund. The Shriners were there with their big grill cooking hamburgers and hot dogs and serving plenty of good food to the participants. Long-time supporter of the Northeast Georgia show, Wheeler Buff, won the 50/50 drawing, part of which he donated to the Shriners.

TWHBEA Honors Andy Adkins Lewisburg, TN - At the Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders’ And Exhibitors’ Association International Board of Directors Meeting, a motion was passed unanimously to honor Andy Adkins, the beloved young owner, exhibitor and trainer that tragically passed away in an auto accident last week. A motion was passed unanimously to declare Saturday, May 26th, 2012 Andy Adkins Day and to rename the Training Education Fund the Wink Groover, Buddy Payne, Andy Adkins Training Fund.

TWHBEA Introduces Online Registration Lewisburg, TN - The Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders’ And Exhibitors’ Association (TWHBEA) is proud to announce that online registration is now live. This capability has been in the works for quite some time and the Association is pleased to be able to offer this new convenience to Tennessee Walking Horse breeders and owners the world over. As with all online transactions, you will need to have everything in order, including your method of payment, before beginning the online registration process.

Letter To The Editor Nashville Tennessean The Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders’ And Exhibitors’ Association (TWHBEA) is appalled and disgusted by the recent horrific video and stories of horse abuse within the Tennessee Walking Horse industry. TWHBEA has issued a response to this inhumane treatment and has barred both Jackie McConnell and Barney Davis from registering or transferring a Tennessee Walking Horse into their name. Additionally, both the Walking Horse Trainers’ Association (WHTA) and the Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration (TWHNC) have taken actions to punish both men. The Tennessee Walking Horse industry is committed to eradicating all abuse. Through the stringent self-policing efforts of the industry’s USDA certified Horse Industry Organizations, Tennessee Walking Horses are subjected to extensive pre and post show inspections that use the latest technologies. At shows, Tennessee Walking Horses are also subject to inspection by USDA Veterinary Medical Officers in the warm-up area and in the barn and trailer areas. The Tennessee Walking Horse industry supports all of these efforts to ensure that only sound and healthy horses are shown. The welfare of each horse is a priority. TWHBEA works diligently through its Equine Welfare division to respond to reports of abuse or neglect and to coordinate with horse owners and law enforcement to resolve situations. The Horse Protection Act of 1970 and any other laws that address animal abuse are much needed. However, no law will ever completely eliminate a problem. Our commitment is to find the abusers, prosecute them and punish them to the fullest extent of the law. The actions of two individuals should not be used to depict the intentions of an entire industry. McConnell and Davis are two trainers in an industry that involves thousands. They are not the norm. They are the abnormal that we are fighting to eliminate and they are the catalyst that will make us fight even harder. Please remember, not all horses are abused and not all trainers are abusers. These events do not excuse or justify abuse in any breed or discipline, they merely serve to point out that bad individuals and bad decisions are part of any breed or discipline and we all must take it upon ourselves to ensure that every horse, regardless of breed or discipline, is treated with kindness and dignity.

The resting place, which is marked by a beautiful granite headstone created by AAA Memorials in Chattanooga, Tennessee, is in a place of honor befitting a World Grand Champion. Special thanks to James E. Davis, Jr., of Bills-McGaugh Funeral Home in Lewisburg for handling the burial.

Equine Obiturary-Korley

This triple registered mare was purchased from Michelle Talley at the Korley Davis benefit trail ride so Just Call Me Cutie quickly became known as “Korley”. Korley was extra special from the start. She was great on the trails as well as made two shows and most recently won the 2 & 3 Year Old Country Pleasure class at the NSSHA Spring Show. Korley passed away Friday, May 25, 2012 due to colic. Korely was under the direction of Dickie Gardner Stables. Richard Wilhelm, DVM was the vet and took excellent care of her. Owner Lori Dunivan wants to thank everyone for their calls and comments after loosing Korley and really appreciates her horse show family.

Equine Obituary – Distilled Gin Distilled Gin passed away on Tuesday, May 28, 2012, due to complications with colic. This colt was a full brother to World Champion, Gin And Juice. He was under the direction of 4 The Glory Farms in Shelbyville, TN and owned by Rick and Marla Lovett of Mobile, AL and Shelbyville, TN. The Scoop sends their condolence on not only losing a horse but a champion.

SHOW cards suspended for weanlings and yearlings

(May 20, 2011 Shelbyville, Tennessee) The SHOW HIO has announced that no SHOW card will be required for entries in Weanling and Yearling classes moving forward. All weanlings and yearlings will be charged a $10 inspection fee in addition to the entry fee at horse shows. Yearlings and weanlings that have already purchased SHOW cards will not be required to pay the $10 inspection fee for the remainder of 2012 and can show as many times as they want. “After receiving feedback from many of our exhibitors and supporters, we have decided that it is best to suspend the SHOW card for these entries and go to a per inspection charge,” said SHOW President Dr. Steve Mullins. “Horse shows across the country have seen less participation in these classes and we did not want our SHOW horse shows to be at a competitive disadvantage because of the lack of entries in these classes due to the price of the horse card,” concluded Mullins. For more information, please contact the SHOW office at 931684-9506.

TWHBEA Withdraws From Unity Committee Lewisburg, TN - The Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders’ And Exhibitors’ Association (TWHBEA) is no longer a member of the Unity Committee. The reasoning behind this action was primarily based on a desire to see the leadership of the industry in the hands of only membership driven organizations such as the Walking Horse Owners’ Association (WHOA), the Walking Horse Trainers’ Association (WHTA) and the Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders’ And Exhibitors’ Association (TWHBEA). It was felt by many on the board and by many members that expressed their concerns, that it was inappropriate for a private organization, such as the Celebration, to be included as part of this committee. Furthermore, concerns were expressed over the fact that the Celebration is the parent organization for the HIO SHOW and that through the Celebration, SHOW has a voice on the committee that no other HIO was granted. TWHBEA continues its commitment to working with all organizations to promote our great horse. According to TWHBEA President Marty Irby, “This decision has been contemplated for quite some time and the majority of our board felt this was the right thing to do. I, personally, voted for the motion and truly feel it was the right thing to do.”

SHOW Reports Fun Show Inspection Results With United States Department of Agriculture veterinarians and compliance officers present throughout the event, more than 97% of the horses inspected at the 42nd annual Celebration Fun Show were compliant with the Horse Protection Act that is designed to eliminate soring in the training of Tennessee Walking Horses. On Sunday, May 27, 2012, Dr. Stephen Mullins, D.V.M., president of the USDA-sanctioned Horse Industry Organization Sound Horses, Honest Judging, Objective Inspections, Winning Fairly (SHOW) announced the findings of his organization’s inspections at the Fun Show, held May 24-26 at the Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration’s Calsonic Arena. “During the Fun Show, we did more than 599 examinations of horses, both pre- and post-show, and we found 16 violations of SHOW regulations,” Dr. Mullins said. “Of those 16 violations, not all were violations of the Horse Protection Act. Some were merely minor violations of our SHOW regulations. “The USDA was on site and working with us throughout the entire show, and they were in total agreement with our inspection findings and what transpired. USDA personnel followed behind us and did their own pre-show inspections on several horses. They also swabbed many horses and then they did post-show inspections on all horses that finished either second or third in the show. We did a thorough job, and likewise, the USDA did a thorough and complete job.”

“While this is one of our industry’s larger shows, we will follow our standard procedure for this event. Those who were cited will have 30 days to appeal, and all findings will be submitted to the USDA. Though it seems that some of our critics are unaware of this, it is standard procedure for us to make the USDA aware of each violation we cite at each event.” Mullins said it is significant that the USDA chose not to write any citations during the event. “Throughout the event, the USDA randomly pulled aside horses, but it never felt that a citation was warranted, which says a lot about the industry and how the horses were checked. The manner in which we inspected the horses was apparently regarded as complying with approved standards and practices, and the way we conducted our examinations at the Fun Show was in accordance with what we always do,” Mullins said. “We are encouraged with the way the show inspection process went. We have established an inspection process that is the best in the nation, and our results continue to reflect that the work of SHOW is making a difference in having only HPA compliant horses in the show ring.” Since the inception of SHOW, the organization has given lifetime suspensions to trainers who have had egregious violations of the HPA.

The Scoop For The Walking Horse Industry LETTER FROM TWSHO Dear Walking Horse Owner, As you probably know there have been many negative reports in the media lately regarding Tennessee Walking Horses. The TWH performance horse especially is under attack by groups calling for the banning of pads and action devices. A newly formed group, Tennessee Walking Show Horse Organization (TWSHO), have developed a strategy to educate stakeholders about our performance horses and administer the Swabbing Initiative approved by the Walking Horse Trainers Association (WHTA). 1. The Swabbing Initiative will be offered to all HIOs that inspect performance and flat shod/pleasure horses, as well as all Show Managers. The protocol will include collection of swabs, for caines and caustics, by independent vet techs as coordinated by TWSHO. Initially all show horses (except weanling, lead line, yearling) at participating affiliated shows will be inspected and identified by class and entry number. Swabs will be sent to an Independent laboratory for analysis. Swabbing will start June 15, 2012. 2. TWSHO is also in the process of interviewing public relations firms to help coordinate all of our media relations. 3. TWSHO is also forming a committee to develop the stakeholder information program to politicians, Show Managers, and other interested or concerned Organizations. All of these actions require money. We are making an urgent request for financial help. Randall Baskin has made a challenge to the WHTA to raise $100,000 and he will match that amount. The TWSHO has also formed a funding committee of Mike Inman, Bruce MacDonald, Bob Medina, Virginia Stewart and Gail Walling to raise money as well as develop funding initiatives going forward. The goal is $1 million dollars and the donations will be tax deductible. These negative attacks affect all owners, trainers, breeders and supporters of the Tennessee Walking Horse. As your trainer, I am asking you to make any donation you can to help save our performance walking horses. Here is how to donate: Donations can be sent to FAST at PO Box 259, Shelbyville, TN 37162 If sending a check please include on the memo line: TWSHO/ WHTA Fund OR To make a donation: PayPal is also available through the FAST website, www.

Why The Media Show By HSUS? A video shot last year by an undercover employee of the Humane Society of the United States, better known as HSUS, showing Walking Horse trainers at a Collierville farm mistreating and applying chemicals to the ankles of horses has caused a major uproar across the Volunteer State and in national media. Held in high esteem in this state for over 100 years, the Tennessee Walking Horse is the only horse breed that carries the name of its state and is the official horse of the state of Tennessee. While all agree that the mistreatment of the horses should not be tolerated, the discussion still continues on the many effects of future regulations and the recent damage inflicted by unknowing media on the breed and the Walking Horse industry. Undercover and “James Bond” type tactics are nothing new for HSUS. In a release from the organization they state they filmed the video in a barn owned and operated by a nationally known trainer and gave the video to federal prosecutors last year. They go on to say that the trainer and three others were charged in a 52-count indictment unsealed in early March. It is also understood from HSUS that he intends to plead guilty to count one of the indictment, a conspiracy to violate the Horse Protection Act. It seems this case is headed to the courts to take the needed actions as required by our laws. The abuse of any animal should not be condoned and when it does occur, notification to the proper authorities should be taken immediately. There are those who go beyond the laws and standards in any industry or sport and so often their actions give a black eye to all the others who are doing things right and following the rules. And just like in this case, there are also those who spend a lot of time and effort in trying to find those who do give the others those black eyes. The video secretly shot by an HSUS employee was turned over to federal officials over a year ago and the group was charged in March. Now two months later, the organization not associated with local animal shelters, puts on a major media show about their efforts. My question is why? Did not the footage get the wrongdoers arrested and brought to court? Is not the important thing here to protect the animals that were abused - or is it? The Scoop / Page 101


The Scoop For The Walking Horse Industry Why The Media Show By HSUS?


HSUS is known for being pretty high profile when it comes to grabbing the media’s attention. They didn’t just call a press conference to say we have caught someone abusing animals; they went national to ABC’s Nightline for a major story. Those efforts have already caused the National Celebration to lose a major sponsor. It still makes me wonder what is HSUS’s real reason for going national other than attempting to completely shut down the Walking Horse industry. Spring and summer is also the time of the year for community horse shows across this state. This recent effort by HSUS to “hold court in the media” is not going to help those community events at all. In fact, it could even cause some to be canceled due to horse owners having concerns about how this will all work out. Since the early 1930s, the community horse show has been a way for rural towns and clubs to raise funds to help provide Christmas for the needy, homes for the homeless, supplies for school children, college scholarships, baseball fields not provided by the county governments and other fund raising opportunities in our small towns. However, with news events staged like this most recent one, those opportunities will be reduced. In one way, those people are being mistreated and no one is holding court on Nightline for them. I love horses as much as anyone, but I also believe in fairness and our law system. Get the bad actors out of the industry and follow the rules for good shows, which I think the organizations are attempting to do. I commend the Tennessee Walking Horse Celebration’s board of directors for permanently banning the trainer and removing his name from the organization’s Hall of Fame inductee list. The board’s actions should be a signal to others that those types of actions will not be tolerated and it clearly disgusts those who do treasure our state horse. Article by Pettus L.

The 39th Annual Mississippi State Racking & Walking Horse Championship Show BOONEVILLE, MS -This year the Mississippi State Racking & Walking Horse Championship Show celebrated its 39th year! The forty-four class Racking Horse Breeders’ Association and Kentucky HIO affiliated event took place May 26, 2012 at the Prentiss County Agri-Center in Booneville, MS. This outstanding equine production was sponsored by the Magnolia Racking Horse Association. All show proceeds go to the Christmas Basket Fund, this year’s selected charity, sponsored by The Daily Corinthian in Corinth, MS. Show Chairman, Linda Roberts, planned a great event and the Honorable Kelly France was the judge who selected the best of the best to win top honors in each class. George Haynie, the ringmaster, kept the show moving along, while Sid Abernathy made time stand still in his beautiful photo images. Ribbon girls, Kristen Stivers and Destiny Haynie, had a grand ole time handing out much anticipated blue ribbons. Charles Ritchie has a knack all his own when it comes to playing the organ. He did a fantastic job keeping in time with the beat of the horses. Some of the highlights of the evening was the Racking Stake champion Tragedy and exhibitor/trainer Rick Parish for owner, Gene Pearson. Danny Latham rode My Kid Rock to the blue ribbon honors in the Specialty Action Stake for owner, Arvolle Brown. Some of the other classes of the evening included Four Year Old Specialty Action Racking with Ed Brown, Amateur Racking with Ed Brown, Park Performance, Spotted Trail Pleasure, Trail Pleasure Walking, Trail Pleasure Racking, Park Pleasure Walking and Ladies Specialty Action, whose winners fought to the end to claim the titles. Congratulations to all show winners for a great performance at this year’s show! For complete show results, please visit our FREE website at

33rd Annual NSSHA Spring Show Murfreesboro, TN - The National Spotted Saddle Horse Association hosted their 33rd Annual NSSHA Spring Show on May 18-19, 2012. The location was at the Middle Tennessee State University Tennessee Livestock Center in Murfreesboro, TN. The show affiliated with S.H.O.W. HIO and the judges for the event were the Honorable Miles Irby and Tony Mercer. Derek Fann announced the show, while Eddie Hixson was the organist. Loving Touch Portraits and Lisa Nixon took the winning shots. The show started each night at 7:00 pm. The show on Friday night started with the Youth Model class and on Saturday night it began with the kids, too, with the stick horses entering the big ring. This year it was decided that the Lead Line class would not be judged and the show was pleased with the turnout. The Association was happy for everyone who attended and participated in their show, They really appreciate the support. While the entries were a little light, they still felt the show was a success. The amateur committee sends a big thank you to everyone who donated items & desserts for the silent auction and to everyone who purchased the treats. The Association also thanks everyone who sponsored this event because without their support the show would not be possible. The next event for the NSSHA is the Warren County Democratic Committee Show which will be held on June 23, 2012, at 7:00pm at the Warren County Fairgrounds in McMinnville, TN. Congratulations to all the winners at the show from The SCOOP staff. For more information on NSSHA, visit their website at
