Volunteer Spirit Show Displays Beautiful Paso Fino Horses


2014/09/03









By Lee Ann Williams-Maley

Paso Fino horse owners from across the country traveled to Murfreesboro on August 15-17, 2014 to participate in one of the last opportunities to qualify their horses for the 2014 Paso Fino Horse Association’s (PFHA’s) Grand National Show & Expo.

Making this show particularly attractive to exhibitors was the presence of three of the five judges who will be judging at this year’s PFHA Nationals — Willman Rodriguez, Donald Schanche and Robbyn Young. Also judging was the esteemed Rogelio Moreno.

The caliber of horses at this year’s show was exceptional with many Grand National and World Cup champions participating. There were 22 percent more horses at this year’s show as compared to 2013, which is hopefully a good sign for our economy and the horse business. We appreciate everyone who came and helped make this show a great success.

“This year’s show was a great competition that displayed the power, beauty and ability of some of the best Paso Fino horses in the United States,” said Tennessee Valley Paso Fino Horse Association President Norman Timbs. “Thanks to our many volunteers we were able to organize a first-class show.”

At the show exhibitors enjoyed good fellowship and food and participated in a silent and live auction. The highlight of this year’s auction was a beautiful, Paso Fino quilt, hand-made by Willene and Bill Smelcer. This gracious couple from Crossville has donated a quilt annually to our show. It takes a full year to complete and has received bids of more than $1,000.
