I was reading on another site where TWHBEA registered 3,105 horses in 2010, that was the least number of horses registered since 1959.
The all time high was 15,431 in 2002.

Don't remember the year and most don't measure the current standards...I remember when they all had to go under the stick at many shows. Still should...they inspect everything else.

I don't remember the year either - just didn't care for that decision. A PONY is 14.2! I DO remember being able to hold their heads down till the withers dropped so those just a TAD over would measure. Embarassed

What year did Vic stop showing? I remember seeing him at the Celebration and his riders, but really don't recall seeing him in the ring much.... Question

PostSubject: Walking Horse Family Reunion   Sun Feb 13, 2011 3:22 pm

Their is a show that comes on every Friday night on RFD-TV called "Country Family Reunion". I watch this show every week and think about this same type venue for the Walking Horse Business. We are loosing part of our history every week and it is a sad thing. This site has been a real "Blessing" for me getting to chat with people who have been there and done that! A example was Sensation61 talking about Mr. Sensation and what happened to him and what was done with his shoes. When I was young I was shy and did not talk to a lot of Trainers, Owners and Horse people and I regret it today. The Walking Horse Business has always been a big part of my life and I truely enjoy talking with you folks. Much of the history with the TWH happened away from the Celebration, and those are the stories we may loose forever.Time for me to stop Rambling. Thank you all.

Man, I love looking at all the old historic pictures...I really wish someone would put all these in to a book or books.. Really breaks my heart that we are losing so much of our heritage.

The new Tennessee Walking Horse Coffee table book has a lot of older things in it. Worth the $50.00 books for those of us that like the older pixs...the some of the larger pixs are very nice but not along the Historial line. It was printed in China. Sure sounds like something I'd like to tackle but the printing costs are very high...Then you've got to have a huge market to sell them to break even or maybe make a dime or two...the research alone would take HOURS....any ideas Guys?????

I would love to have a book with lots of the old stuff in it, but I am not sure that a lot of the current walking horse crowd cares much about the history of our breed.
