PHBA Recognizes NWHA

The Palomino Horse Breeders Association officially recognized the National Walking Horse Association at PHBA's national convention in Lexington, Kentucky, in March. NWHA, an organization dedicated to the natural Walking Horse, has its headquarters in Lexington.

The PHBA convention voted to Palominos contained in the NWHA Tracking Registry eligible for the PHBA registry. Also, NWHA was specifically nominally added to the list of equine associations whose horses are eligible for recognition in the PHBA Palomino Performance Program. This program awards PHBA points and prizes to Walking Horse owners exhibitors are encouraged to go to the PHBA registered Palominos that compete in non-PHBA shows. Interested Palomino Walking Horse owners and exhibitors are encouraged to go to the PHBA website at http://www.palominohba.com

Tennessean Richard Dunavant, a member of both PHBA and NWHA and a supporter of the PHBA measures, hopes to increase PHBA and NWHA membership and registrations and to promote Palomino Walking Horses in general. Dunavant also aspires to see Palomino classes in NWHA-affiliated shows. Dunavant stated, " I am pleased with the actions taken by PHBA in reaching out to the National Walking Horse Association. Palomino Walking Horses are not only beautiful but are among the best bred naturally gaited horses. I hope more owners of these prize horses will join and participate in PHBA."

The PHBA Golden Trails Riding Program is also open to breed-registered Palomino horses.
