Last week several individuals forwarded to me the recent “Foundation Clarification” distributed by David Williams, the new president of the Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders and Exhibitors Association. I am the current President of the Tennessee Walking Horse Foundation (“the Foundation”), on record with the Secretary of State of Tennessee, and while the Foundation could take issue with virtually everything Mr. Williams has said in his letter, we choose not to do so. We believe that public charities, including the Foundation, should not become distracted from their missions by feuding with each other. In a breed as fractured as ours is, there is certainly room for multiple foundations to help promote our breed, and I wish Mr. Williams and his new foundation success in promoting the future welfare of the Tennessee Walking Horse.
The Foundation stands as a leader, a catalyst and a resource to promote, protect and provide education about the Tennessee Walking Horse. Last year the Foundation created a fund to assist the rescue and foster of Tennessee Walking Horses in need. Please consider a donation to the Foundation by sending a check to TWHF, P.O. Box 11263, Murfreesboro, TN 37129 or donations may be made using PayPal on the Foundation’s website www.tnwalkinghorsefoundation.com.
Thank you for your support of the Tennessee Walking Horse Foundation.
