LONDON RAIN AND JUSTIN JENNE’ WIN HOMETOWN SHOW… BELFAST, TN - The Belfast Lions Club held their 52nd Annual Horse Show Friday, August 3, 2012, at the S.W. Beech Memorial Field in Belfast, TN. The proceeds from this show went to support projects in Belfast and Marshall counties, which include eyeglasses and eye exams for the needy and street lighting for the community. The club also makes regular donations to the Lions White Cane Fund and other local charities. The Belfast Show is one of three held over this particular weekend known as the Belfast/Wartrace weekend, and also includes the Fayetteville Blue Ribbon Show on Thursday, night. These are the last three big shows for horses and exhibitors to show off their talents before going on to the Celebration. The Honorable Jeff Green of Shelbyville, TN judged the event. Photographer for the night was Jack Greene and ringmaster, Jeremy Wilhelm, lined up the entries. There were several thrilling classes that stuck out during the evening performance. The precious lead line class was filled with fierce competition and Miss Grace Wilhelm led by her mother, Kristen, made a blue ribbon ride on Rascal Flatts. Kailin Kesselring made a great show to claim the blue in the Amateur Park Performance class aboard Undecided. Sherri Pollack made an excellent show to claim the blue in the Amateur 15.2 & Under class with her champion, I’m P Diddy. Benjamin Bowen made a flawless performance to pick up the blue in the Youth Ponies class with Tommy Lee Jones. The Two Year Old Open winner was Jazzmine Lady with Winky Groover riding for proud owner, Jo Ann Dowell. Ironwork’s Tin Man and Chad Way made a great show to claim the blue in the Show Pleasure Open class for owner, Ray Jones Trucking. The most exciting class of the evening, as we know, is always the Stake class. There were three talented entries to enter the show ring competing for the big blue. First place went to London Rain and Justin Jenne’ for Gingerbread Farms. Second place went to George W. McLintock and Brock Tillman for Rick and Marla Lovett. The final ribbon was awarded to A Total Champion and Chad Way for the Tony Redmon family. What a great show! Thank you to all the show officials! The SCOOP congratulates the blue ribbon winners!

The Scoop For The Walking Horse Industry Irby lETTEr To cElEbraTIoN Marty Irby 4400 Franklin South court Franklin, TN 37064 august 10, 2012 VIa EMaIl & rEgular uS MaIl Dr. Doyle G. Meadows, Chief Executive Officer Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration Post Office Box 10 1 0 Shelbyville, TN 37 162 Re: Suspension due to domain name issue Dear Doyle: Please allow me to present a few facts surrounding the domain names, and negotiations between TWHBEA k TWHNC: 1) On Thursday, June 28,2012, our TWHBEA Executive Committee met and voted to release the domain names to The Celebration. 2) On either Monday, July 2,2012 or Tuesday, July 3,2012 I contacted TWHBEA’s attorney, Mr. Walter Bussart to inform him we had voted to release the domain names to The Celebration. 3) Mr. Bussart subsequently negotiated the terms of the release with your attorney, Mr. Stephen Zralek, who in turn began to prepare an agreement for all parties to sign. 4) I received the final copy of the agreement at 1 1 : 14 a.m. on Wednesday, July 1 1,2012. At the time, I was out of my office. When I returned to my ofice the same day, I immediately initialed each page of the agreement, signed the document, and faxed back to Mr. Bussart at 3: 1 1 p.m. 5) After receiving confmation that the fax went through I filed the agreement away, and never thought about the issue again until I received your letter of suspension dated July 30,2012. During the 19 day gap, I was never made aware of any further issues related to the domain names or the agreement. In my mind, it was a done deal and behind us. I have attached and provided documentation of the above. As you can see, I operated under good faith that we had an agreement, and our attorney maintains we had an agreement. Your letter dated July 30,2012 stated “...after our attorney tendered settlement documents, we were unable to obtain your cooperation to access the usernames and passwords needed to transfer the domain names.” I was never notified by you, your attorney, our attorney, or any other party that there was an issue regarding the completion of the transfer of domains, until I received the previously referenced letter. I never
Page 14 / The Scoop
personally had any passwords, or access to TWHBEA’s internet domain accounts. TWHBEA has a technology director named Rickey Clardy who handles items of that nature. Yesterday evening, I, along with our EC received a packet of information, documents, and emails from Mr. Bussart pertaining to this subject. After reading the emails between our attorneys and technology director, it appears your attorney communicated as late as Wednesday, July 18 at 1 1 :05 the instructions on how to transfer the names. With that said, I ask how The Celebration board made a decision on July 17 to suspend me, when our attorney was cooperating and working with your attorney to complete the transfer. Our technology director was ultimately unable to complete the transfer because GoDaddy.com had the domain names “locked up” due to the arbitration The Celebration filed. There was no username or password TWHBEA would have been able to turn over to The Celebration because of GoDaddy’s action to remove the names from TWHBEA’s account during the arbitration. If you will refer back to item number 10 of the agreement I signed as President of TWHBEA it states “Each party releases and forever discharges the other party, its principals, employees, legal representatives, and assigns from all manner of action, claims and demands for or by reason of any damage or loss which has been or may be sustained as a consequence of the subject matter of this agreement.” The Celebration has the domain names. I ask that you, and your board reconsider the suspension based on the facts, and based on the documents, and emails provided and attached to this letter. Mr. Bussart maintains this clause covers, TWHBEA, and me personally. This entire issue has completely gotten out of hand. The Celebration’s decision to suspend me personally does no good for anyone in our industry, or for our horse. My goal in life and as President of TWHBEA is to act and make the decisions that do the most good, for the most horses, and the most people. I ask you and your board to do the same. We have far more serious problems, and issues within our industry and breed that we need to solve and we need serious people to solve them. This matter has become nothing more than a distraction for our industry, and again does no good for anyone, and does no good for our horse. Our industry supporters, your celebration customers, our TWHBEA members, and our great horse deserves better than this. I ask that you lift the suspension, honor our original agreement that I signed and returned, and move forward to work in dealing with the real issues at hand. The choice is yours, and this is an opportunity for us all to show our industry that we are trying to do the right thing. Either way, 1 wish you a successful 2012 Celebration, and hope the event I have loved since I was 5 years old will be successful for many years to come. All the best,

LOYd HALL BLACk, JR., AppOINTEd Lewisburg, TN - Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders’ and Exhibitors’ Association Member At Large By Laws Vice President Loyd Hall ‘Buster’ Black, Jr., was recently appointed to the American Horse Council Animal Welfare Committee. Active with the American Horse Council for several years, Black, who is an attorney specializing in equine law and equine regulation, was selected for this appointment based on his knowledge, experience and commitment to the sound horse and to the goals of the American Horse Council. He has recently completed a two year term as chairman of the Coalition of State Horse Councils of the American Horse Council. Founded in 1969, the American Horse Council (AHC) is the national organization representing all segments of the horse industry in Washington, DC. It is member supported by approximately 160 organizations and 1,200 individuals representing every facet of the horse world. The AHC has seven committees, of which Animal Welfare is one, that are looked to for expertise and advice on issues faced by the horse industry. The mission of the AHC is to ensure that the industry works together in Washington to accomplish the ultimate goal of “Keeping Opportunities Open” for all segments of the horse industry.
TWSHO TO HOST RECEpTION The Walking Horse Show Organization is encouraging everyone to attend a reception to be held on August 22 from 5:00-6:30 p.m. in the Blue Ribbon Circle.

TENNESSEE WALkING HORSE NATIONAL CELEBRATION RESpONSE TO HUMANE SOCIETY (Shelbyville, TN) – The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) is coming late to the game on this one. Rather than working to reform the industry to rid it of soring trainers, the HSUS is going after the very people who have led the reform effort. SHOW HIO, which does the inspections at The Celebration, has the strictest inspections and the harshest penalties in the business. In fact our process goes above and beyond what is required by federal regulations. If the HSUS looked at The Celebration’s record it would see that we are doing much of what the organization proposes, and have been for years, and the things we are not doing have nothing to do with protecting the horse but everything to do with the HSUS’s sensationalistic media tactics. In terms of the HSUS’ requests: 1. We don’t allow soring horses in the ring. We have the strictest inspection business and the harshest penalties in the business. Already being done. 2. Already being done. 3. It would not make sense to do something that could harm the horse when there are a number of things we already do to ensure that the horse has not been sored. 4. This is a ridiculous request as the USDA and The Celebration inspectors are allowed to enter anywhere at anytime. The HSUS can keep talking about caring for horses but we are actually doing it. The difference between The Celebration and the HSUS is when inspectors at The Celebration see evidence of soring they send the trainer home and punish him or her severely. When the HSUS sees evidence of soring, they send a film crew, spend six months watching abuse, a few more editing a video and use it as a fundraising tool. When the HSUS becomes more interested in stopping abuse when they see it than watching enough that they can make money off it, maybe someone will listen. Press release from TWHNC

The Scoop For The Walking Horse industry TWSHO ReSpOnSe TO SORing TRaineRS Today The Tennessean is asking people, “Will you boycott future Tennessee walking horse shows to protest horse soring?” There isn’t anyone more concerned about protecting horses than those trying to reform the walking horse industry. Those reformers achieved a 98.5% compliance rate from the USDA last year. Unfortunately it has become popular, because its easy, to go after the entire industry, rather than listen to how to best reform it. If The Tennessean is interested at all, in saving a sport that generates hundreds of millions of dollars for small towns across the southeastern United States and donates almost its entire proceeds to charities – millions of dollars – then they should listen to those who are working night and day to run soring trainers out of the business, and actually have a track record of doing it. There are shows that have more stringent inspections processes, issue more violations, and punish more severely, soring trainers than even the USDA. If people want to rid the system of soring trainers, they need to tell the US Department of Agriculture to send inspectors to shows where there are NO inspections and support the shows with the strictest inspections. If The Tennessean was truly interested in getting rid of soring trainers, they would talk to the people actually doing it.

incOMing celeBRaTiOn ceO On his first day on the job, Mike Inman jumped in with both feet running. He knows he’s got work to do. Inman’s transition into his role as CEO of the Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration began last week; and during his first day on the job — before settling into his office, setting up a new email, getting business cards or doing anything else you might normally do on your first day on the job — Inman began working toward a very clear goal he has set for himself. Promotion He says he wants — he needs — to promote the walking horse, starting with the performance horse. “We are in difficult times, and we know that, and hopefully (I) can be a part of the solution,” said Inman. “We (The Celebration) put on three horse shows a year, but my responsibility is larger than that. I think my responsibility is to promote the walking horse 365 days a year, not just during show season.”
The Scoop For The Walking Horse Industry CElEbraTIoN CEo, cont’d Inman has owned and shown horses for decades and also cofounded FAST (the Foundation for the Advancement and Support of the Tennessee Walking Show Horse, Inc.), a non-profit dedicated to promoting and raising funds for the industry in addition to serving on the Tennessee Walking Horse and Breeders’ Association’s executive committee in the past. In what has been a difficult year for the Celebration, which has been continuously criticized by media following the arrest of a prominent horse trainer, Inman says the industry needs to move on and focus on sharing with the community all of the good things about the breed. Positive approach First and foremost, this includes showcasing a sound show horse. He says it’s unfair the industry has been broadly painted in a negative picture as a result of a few trainers who have poorly represented the horse industry, which is filled with good people, who love and care for their horses properly. “I believe in this horse. Right now, we need to promote all the things we’re doing right,” said Inman. “All we’re doing right now is being defensive … There are things in this industry that have to change, but our biggest problem right now is that we are allowing our detractors to dictate who we are. We need to focus on the positive and actively promote the performance horse.” In short, Inman believes this mission can be accomplished by engaging the community, educating the public and addressing any issues head-on. “When you understand the package, the action device, when you put it in people’s hands, they understand it, they get it and accept it,” he said. New home Inman, whose background is in the residential home business, is leaving his home in Birmingham, Ala., with his wife Karen to permanently reside in Shelbyville, where he has had a second home for about a decade. “Now my preferred home is becoming our permanent home,” he said, explaining he and his wife have found delight in showing their horses in Shelbyville for 27 years. “The hardest part about (taking this new position) is going to be selling my (show) horses,” he said, explaining the Celebration Executive committee prohibits this due to it being a conflict of interest. “They have been gracious, though, in allowing me to keep a few trail horses.” After all, trail horses are what drew Mike and Karen Inman to the industry nearly 30 years ago. Mike and Karen both were working for Sears in Dallas at the time. “I told Karen, if I got a promotion, I’d get her a horse,” he laughed. He said they first acquired one walking horse and one appaloosa. “We’d fight over who got to ride the walking horse, and I lost the fight every time.” Love for horses Soon enough, the Inmans had a string of trail horses, and that evolved over the years to include a crop of breeding and winning Tennessee walking show horses, many of those in training with local trainer Allan Callaway. Though he says he and his wife will miss showing horses, they feel the sacrifice is justified. His passion, knowledge and dedication make him the right person to succeed outgoing CEO, Dr. Doyle Meadows. “The hardest thing will be not showing,” said Inman, of his new role. “We love showing and love the competition aspect, but the thing is, these (people who show) are our friends, and that’s key. There’s nothing better than being able represent your friends. Karen and I are passionate about this.” Inman also pointed out his wife will be assisting him in many of his duties as CEO, in addition to other resourceful industry insiders who, until now, have not been asked to help.
New focus Inman recently resigned from his FAST position to focus on his new job, however he plans to work closely with the organization, in addition to TWSHO (a new group that is also dedicated to promoting the horse) and all other groups that support the show horse. He wants to get into the schools, and get community leaders involved. “People are very generous with their horses and want to show the world all the good things,” he said. In reference to June’s AACA dual antique car meet, held at the Celebration, Inman said he would have liked to have seen show horses being exhibited all day long, for visitors to the community to see. “Now that would have made the newspaper,” he laughed. Inman said he wants to call on the industry, one that’s made up of people from all walks of life, to help him accomplish his mission of promoting the horse. ‘Right attitude’ “There’s such a variety of people with all types of resources,” he said. Inman, who worked with well-known motivational speaker Zig Zigler for a year, knows the year ahead will not be easy, but he says with the right attitude, success will come. “I believe 80 percent of finding and keeping a job is attitude,” he said. “If you don’t have the right attitude, I don’t care how smart you are … My attitude is that I love this horse. “Anyone who is successful can succeed in good times; it’s those who make it through difficult times who are truly successful.” Meadows, who announced his retirement last year, will continue his role as CEO through October, but until then, Inman will be assisting him. Both will be present for this year’s show. “My plan is to help Dr. Meadows put on a good Celebration,” he said. “I will be out and about, thanking sponsors, thanking exhibitors and talking to as many people as possible.” Coming together Beyond the Celebration, Inman also wants to unify the currently divided industry. He says there is a need for everyone to come together. “I started with trail horses and that evolved into showing, so I love it all,” he said. “But there are some people who (only) love trail horses, and there are some — very few — the other way (who only like performance horses), and that’s what makes it difficult …The extreme versatility of our horse sometimes pulls us apart instead of pulling us together.” Approaching this year’s event, Inman remains energized and optimistic about the future. “The Celebration is the best product in the equine industry, and we have a strong product that we have to sell,” he said. “It is an event that any other breed in the equine industry would swap with in a minute, even in a down year.” Article source: http://www.t-g.com/story/1880014.html

The Alabama Classic Baileyton, AL- On Saturday, August 11, 2012, the Parkside School Teachers Supplies Benefit held their annual Alabama Classic show at the Baileyton, Park in Baileyton, AL. It was a beautiful day to have a show. There was a feeling of fall in the air which made it pleasant for people and for equines.

Some of the memorable classes included the Amateur Two Year Old with Blake Beam taking home the honors with Pushin That Power; The Goal Line and Nan Barnes claiming the Park Performance class; Outta Line and Kelly Peevy adding another win to their already impressive blue ribbon honors; Better Stand Back and Jack Heffington taking top honors in the AOT Specialty for owners, Brogdon and Heffington; They Call Me Saban and Ray Solley scored another touchdown winning the Amateur Three Year Old class.

106th Annual Wartrace Horse Show
THE GOLDEN SOVEREIGN AND TIM SMITH WALKED TO THE BLUE RIBBON HONORS IN WARTRACE WARTRACE, TN-The 106th Annual Wartrace Horse Show was held Saturday, August 4, 2012, at Jernigan Field in Wartrace, TN. Once a year three organizations, which include the East Bedford Civic Club, Cascade High School and the Cascade Elementary Parent-Teacher Organization, band together to form the Civic Enterprises of Wartrace. Together as one large group, they sponsor this event. The proceeds from this show will sponsor community, school and youth projects throughout the year. The Honorable Bill Cantrell of Phenix City, AL judged the 29 class
event. Brian Peery of Hampshire, TN kept the crowd moving with the sounds from his organ and Bobby Sands of Columbia, TN had the show moving right along as he announced the show. Photographer, Jack Greene, captured the horses at their best. Other show oﬃcials included farrier, Mark Walling of Wartrace, TN; veterinarian, Robert West; show chairman, Roy Ferguson, and show secretary, Heather Beard. Even though it was extremely humid, the riders and horses didn’t seem to mind and they performed at their very best. The show started
with Pride Of Willie and Mark West carrying the American Flag. The Cascade High School Band performed the National Anthem. There were many outstanding classes of the evening that made everyone take notice. Justin Harris rode Specialist’s Fancy Lady in the Two Year Old Mares or Geldings class for owners, Jim & Jane Walker, and The Special Design in the 15.2 & Under Open Specialty class for owners, Don & Elaine Milligan.

CHRIS PICKEL AND ON THE DOTTED LINE WALKED AWAY WITH THE BLUE RIBBON AT THE FENTRESS COUNTY FAIR HORSE SHOW JAMESTOWN, TN – August 11, 2012 was the date of the Fentress County Fair Horse Show held at the Fentress County Fairgrounds in Jamestown, TN.

Johnny Ritz and Billy Gray Take the Blue at Fayetteville Fayetteville, TN – The Lincoln County Horseman’s and 4-H Horse Show Grounds was the setting for the Thirty-first Annual Fayetteville Blue Ribbon Horse Show held on August 2, 2012, in Fayetteville. The Lincoln County 4-H Honor Club sponsored the show with the proceeds being invested in the Youth of Lincoln County 4-H Clubs. The Honorable Don Milligan from Shelbyville, TN judged the thirty-class event. It is always good to hear Chip Walters handling the announcer’s responsibilities. Jack Greene was the official photographer and Brian Peery tickled the ivories of his horse show organ. The class sheets for the show were sponsored by Brook Haven Farm of Fayetteville. The show got off to a good start with pretty Breanna Lovvorn winning the Lead Line class sitting aboard multi-World Champion, Shake’s Little Midnight. Absolute Bullet Proof and Jordan Dempsey made the ride down victory lane in the Youth 12-17 Specialty class. Ed Breedlove and Kid Callahan wore the blue ribbon out on their bridle in the Amateur Specialty class. These are just a few of the memorable rides that were made. The Stake class winners were Billy Gray in the irons aboard Johnny Ritz for owner, Hoyte Eakes. Brett Boyd and Knee Deep In Cash took home the red ribbon for Charles and Joy Gleghorn. The SCOOP was happy to be in attendance to greet the champions. Please visit our FREE website at www.thescooponline.com.

OLIVE HILL KENTUCKY SHOW WAS OFF TO A GOOD START, BUT . . . Everyone was in great spirits on Friday night as the Shrine Club had a great turnout for their benefit show. However, things turned very grim Saturday with the USDA in attendance. It is sad to announce that there was not a racking or walking champion. Under the strict mandatory penalties agreed to by the KY-HIO, people feared the worse and most decided not to show. Please visit the SCOOP’s FREE website at www.thescooponline.com.
