Mar 17th, 2021 | By | Category: News

The Tennessee Walking Horse Industry is off to a great 2021 year! The start has been so exciting with colt previews and barn parties that get everyone hyped up about the upcoming season. Many have enjoyed getting out and catching up on the latest Scoop of the industry. There have already been many colts sold and purchased with the anticipation of a great show year.

It all started with David Mast and Jessica Hlebak of Stonewall Farm hosting their annual kickoff event. Many talented pleasure horses were presented at their barn party. Snappwood Farm followed by hosting a barn party and colt preview the last weekend in February in Sevierville, Tennessee. Everyone was excited to see Jimbo Conner’s new facility, some presentations of young colts and visit with fellow horse people. The best part about this weekend was being able to do things in Gatlinburg since it was nearby.

The first weekend of March proved to be just as fun and eventful. The North Carolina Walking Horse Association knows how to throw a party, too! They hosted a sneak preview, a fun show and a time of fellowship with friends and food! If you traveled south to Alabama on this same weekend, you could have attended the WHAA’s annual barn party and colt preview. It was held at Choose Your Gate Farm in Danville. This beautiful venue is owned by Kelly Peevy. Continuing on March 6th was the Premeir Stables Barn Party and Preview. Trainers Nathan Rymer and Clay Sanderson were very excited to welcome everyone to their first event at their new training facility.

The Kentucky Walking Horse Association held their annual banquet and presented all their 2020 High Point Awards. WHOA hosted their first show of the season and they had the largest turnout they have ever had. With the new show year buzzing all around, many colts have swapped owners and contenders have been purchased for new divisions. It is fair to say 2021 has successfully kicked off and it is one for the books. If this is a sign of what the year will be, then bring it on! The Scoop is proud to cover these events, and we look forward to covering more. GOOD LUCK to everyone and we look forward to greeting you soon!
