walking horse celbration

SHELBVYVILLE, Tenn. (AP./WMOT) — The Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration is changing the way soring test results are handled at this year’s annual competition.

The Celebration's Board of Directors say that for the first time, results from chemical tests will be made public immediately, and result in trainers losing their trophies and prize money if caught abusing horses.

In the past, chemical test results were delayed, but this year the results will be expedited and made available during the event.
