A new equine association called the World Conformation Horse Association has formed, and prospective members will get a chance to learn more about the organization on October 17 during the All American Quarter Horse Congress in Columbus, Ohio.
“We have been extremely encouraged by the response we have received from the industry,” says Peter Cofrancesco, III, of Sparta, N.J., WCHA steering committee chairman. “There has been nothing but positive support from all sectors of the stock horse industry as the WCHA has begun delivering its message regarding the value of good conformation in the horse, regardless of the discipline it might be competing in.”
Cofranscesco said that during the Congress, information will be provided about the direction and focus of the WCHA, and special announcements will be made regarding competitions to be held in 2008. The WCHA event is free and open to anyone interested, although tickets are required to attend. Tickets are available from any WCHA committee member, at indicated stalling areas at the Congress or by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Tickets will be available through October 12.
