The National Walking Horse Association (NWHA) has left Texas and relocated to Lexington, Ky. Its new headquarters is located in the Kentucky Horse Park’s National Horse Center.
“We gladly welcome the NWHA as a new tenant in our National Horse Center because the welfare of Walking Horses is their top priority. Their noble efforts to preserve and protect naturally-gaited horses are laudable, and we are proud to have them join the Kentucky Horse Park family,” says Kentucky Horse Park Executive Director John Nicholson.
The NWHA provides an equitable horse show affiliation program for Walking Horses to be exhibited, judged and showcased in full compliance with the Federal Horse Protection Act. This is accomplished through rules that are enforced fairly and consistently, a horse inspection program and judges that are committed to fair judging, with an understanding of the true gaits of the Walking Horse.
