TWHYA Welcome!

Do you love the Tennessee Walking Horse?  Then you are in the right place! TWHYA is the youth association for the Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders and Exhibitors Association.  We have been around for six years, and while we are young (just like you!), we have lots going on!

Whether you own a Tennessee Walking Horse or hope to someday, you can join TWHYA for just $20 a year.  You can meet new ‘TWHYA’ friends, earn awards, enter contests, learn about horse care, scholarship opportunities, and much, much more!

Take a moment to wonder through the wonderful world of TWHYA!  If you have any questions, suggestions, or just want to say HI – email us:
