Join us to learn more about working on your TWH's gait and working with their conformation in a clinic led by two industry experts.
Join us for a two-day show packed with pleasure, versatility, and fun classes! Open Gaited classes are also offered, so all gaited breeds are invited to participate. Read on for more info including the full show packet!
Our first show of the year is a "casual attire" day of fun and friendly competition!
This is a great show to dip your toes into the show world if you've never tried it. We're all here to help you learn the ropes if you wish.
There are a few Open Gaited Breed classes (youth and novice) and the All Day Pleasure classes are open to any gaited breed that follows the division's rules (read All Day Pleasure rules from the National Walking Horse Association here or contact us if you have specific questions - email@example.com)
MWHA members only! Join us to talk about all you need to know to look sharp in the show ring. What do you need? What are the current trends? Where can you get some bling?
Renee Stasiewicz, a TWH owner and STYLISH exhibitor from Wisconsin, will be our presenter. You're also invited to bring your own questions.
MWHA members can email firstname.lastname@example.org for access. Plan to join by computer for maximum benefit, but it is also accessible by phone (smartphone or not).
If you have ever had a thought about the MWHA, now is your chance to share it!
We want to hear what you like, what you would like to see added or changed in the future, and any other input you have. We believe that chatting over coffee/tea/cocktails/pizza is the best way to really get all our ideas out, so pour yourself a beverage, dish up some snacks, put your feet up, and join us!
