Review from Guidestar

For years the Tennessee Walking Horse has endured abuse in the form of soring. In 1970 the Federal Government responded with the Horse Protection Act. Since the beginning, the Act has attempted to stop the abuse of this magnificent breed but has failed. The practice of abuse continues. The National Walking Horse Association has come about for those of us like me that want a forum to show our sound and natural moving gaited horses. I believe that in the near future they will become the organization of choice for the world to showcase the breed. As a hint of whats to come they were asked to represent the bred in the World Equestrian Games. I believe this is a wonderful organization, with a true message of hope for the future of the Tennessee Walking Horse.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Many visits to their website and future participation at their affiliated shows and events.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make it bigger, more funds to perpetuate the cause of sound horses. To end the so called "padded" or "performance" horse that is abused in order to get the "big lick" unnatural gait.

I have been an owner and exhibitor of the Twh for over40 years. The awefull things they to to compete with these beautiful animals was more that I could deal with. When NWHA started that put the fun back in showing for many of us and especially for the animal. we all show and compete and trail ride on sound animals. It is marvelous.

It was through the NWHA that I was introduced to the Tennessee Walking Horse breed. Watching the behavior of these horses and their owners/riders at a large regional horse show, with one rider even asking me to hold her horse while she checked on a ruling, showed me some very positive things about this breed of horse and the friendliness of the people within NWHA. Several months later I adopted a Walking Horse of my own. The NWHA had opened my eyes to what a Walking Horse should be and could be as an alternative to the gross exageration that I had seen in the media. The NWHA promotes the versatility and utility of the Walking Horse, sponsors many events and activities that appeal to Walking Horse owners, young and old, as well as works toward developing the potential of the breed in general. Because of the information that I've learned from the people within this organization I was able to help a friend to find a Walking Horse of her own. It is a tribute to this organization that they were selected to be the breed affiliate for the Walking Horse at the 2010 World Equestrian Games. A high honor indeed. This board and members of this organization make the NWHA a "people-oriented" horse association that I'm proud know.

I can't think of anything that I would change at this time.
