Tennessee Walking Horses featured in Horse and Rider

Horse and Rider magazine, a newsstand magazine geared toward the general public, featured Tennessee Walking Horses in the Conformation Clinic article in the August issue.  The Conformation Clinic shows photos of 3 horses and then presents a critique of each horse. WHOA judge Carol Camp critiqued the class.  Camp stated "I was proud to see three really nice looking Tennessee Walking Horses shown in this mostly Western breed based publication.”
