East Tennessee Walking Horse Association
General Information


ETWHA Membership Class:

Changes dictate you are now allowed to show in the East TN Members Class if you join the day of an ETWHA affiliated horse show, however high points will not begin to accumulate until after the 7 day grace period. Prior to the changes, to be allowed to show in the East TN Members Class you must have been a member 7 days prior to the show date otherwise you were not allowed to show in the ETWHA Members Class. 


Points will be awarded to the highest placing member that has reached the 7 day new member grace period. For example, if a new-member (joining that night / day - 7 day grace period not met) ties first and an existing member ties second, the existing member will receive the first place points etc.


If anyone has questions regarding  this change please reach out to Bill Daugherty or any ETWHA board member.
