The Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders’ & Exhibitors’ Association is the oldest and most prestigious of organizations devoted to the promotion of the breed. Its primary purpose is to record the pedigrees of Tennessee Walking Horses and work to maintain the purity of the breed. The TWHBEA is also dedicated to promoting greater awareness of the breed and its unique qualities, to encourage the expansion of the breed, and to help assure the general welfare of all Tennessee Walking Horses.
Anyone may become a member of the Association subject to approval by the Executive Committee. Breeders, owners, trainers, exhibitors or others interested in the breed are sure to benefit from the many advantages of membership.
Membership does have its advantages and primary among them is the privilege of conducting business at reduced rates. New foal registrations, transfers, blood typing kits, certified pedigrees, duplicate certificates, name changes and other services are yours, as a member, at lower rates than non-members’ rates. In some cases, the savings is more than half.
Additionally, as a member, you are entitled to educational opportunities and research services that are not made available to non-members of the Association. Membership also extends your accessibility to regularly updated information about activities of the breed.
