TWHBEA Offers Incentive for National Field Trial Championship

Recognizing the important role of horses in field trials, TWHBEA offered a $500 prize to the winning handler of the National Field Trial Championships, if that handler rides a registered Tennessee Walking Horse in the competition. “This is one more way that people are enjoying their Tennessee Walking Horses,” said TWHBEA CEO Mark Farrar. “The smooth ride and disposition that our horses are best known for, along with the speed at which they travel, make them the ideal equine partner for field trial handlers.” The 125th running of the National Championship began on February 12, 2024 at Ames Plantation in Grand Junction, Tennessee. The competition runs on approximately 6,000 acres of the plantation and attracts several thousand field trial enthusiasts from all over the world each year.
