Boxer, George Foreman A Big Hit at the National Walking Horse

Regional Championship Horse Show in Texas

Nacogdoches,TX – The National Walking Horse Association (NWHA) ’s Regional Championship, The East Texas Gaited Horse Show, was held in Nacogdoches, TX, April 4-5. Presenting blue ribbons to several of the many outstanding Walking Horses was the Honorable George Foreman, former heavyweight boxing champion. Mr. Foreman was gracious enough to spend time with visitors, exhibitors and their horses, sign autographs, and smile for lots of camera shots.
Foreman is a member of the National Walking Horse Association and an owner and avid supporter of sound flatshod Walking Horses. I instantly loved Walking Horses. They are beautiful. It’s the horse of a heavyweight champion; you can have a good time, look good, and not fall off, he said.  Foreman went on to say that, We all want to have a nice horse, and we want to make their life pleasant so they can make our life pleasant. Don’t put them through any stress, and they will give us a good long life. That is what it’s all about. Thanks to Foremans attendance, the East Texas Gala not only sported champion horses but also a champion of men. 
The National Walking Horse Association (NWHA), with headquarters at the Kentucky Horse Park, Lexington, Kentucky, is a sound walking horse organization that has: zero tolerance for soring, does not allow padded horses, chains, or any action devices on horses at any of their shows.

NWHA affiliates over 60 shows a year with various other sound horse organizations, and culminates the horse show season with the National Walking Horse Championship Show in September. The National Show was the largest flat shod walking horse show ever held in Miller Coliseum in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, and one of the largest flat shod walking horse shows in the nation.
We are committed to promoting the naturally gaited Walking Horses said Don Vizi, Executive Director, of the National Walking Horse Organization, who was on hand for the regional championship show.
