TWHBEA Recognizes Anderson As Master Breeder
Lewisburg, TN - The Master Breeders’ Award Committee at the Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders' and Exhibitors' Association (TWHBEA) is pleased to announce this year's Award recipient: S. P. Anderson. The highest and most prestigious recognition given to a breeder of Tennessee Walking Horses, the TWHBEA Master Breeders’ Award recognizes those breeders whose body of work over an extended period of time has had a significant and long-lasting impact on the Tennessee Walking Horse breed. TWHBEA has registered over 500,000 horses over a period of 78 years and less than 20 breeders have been recognized for this award.
A native of Manchester, Tennessee, S. P. ‘Pete’ Anderson first became involved in the Tennessee Walking Horse industry in the early 1950s. His passion was always the challenge involved in breeding top-quality Tennessee Walking Horses. His philosophy was simple - breed good mares to good stallions. His broodmare band was renowned, including such names as Miss May Lady, Piddley’s Business, Eldorado’s Threat, Bummin Belinda, Qtr. Back’s Majorette, Sun’s Bay Girl, and Lady Supreme A. Crossing these mares with the best stallions of the time, he was able to produce numerous winning show horses as well as numerous successful broodmares and breeding stallions. Among his greatest success stories was, of course, 1979 World Grand Champion Threat’s Supreme A., who was out of Miss May Lady and by 1965 World Grand Champion Triple Threat. Other well-known products of his breeding program include Eb’s Black Charger, sire of 1998 World Grand Champion Masquerading, Eb’s Black Diamond, multi-titled 15.2 & Under champion, and the current popular stallion Black Diamond Ritz, sire of Adorable Diamond, this year’s Yearling World Grand Champion.
The Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders' and Exhibitors' Association (TWHBEA), headquartered in Lewisburg, Tennessee, is the oldest and most prestigious organization devoted to the promotion of the breed. Founded in 1935, the breed registry was established to record the pedigrees of the Tennessee Walking Horse. Its goal is to maintain the purity of the breed, to promote greater awareness of the Tennessee Walking Horse and its qualities, to encourage expansion of the breed, and to help assure its general welfare.
