terms with colorful illustrations and useful charts. You can finally get answers to questions about equine color that you didn't even know how to ask. Why try to match your horse's color to something close when you can match to a scientifically identified color?

For 10 years Elsie has studied color genetics with the goal of creating a more accurate color identification system. The book will be reviewed for accuracy by the staff at UC Davis and Dr. Phillip Sponenberg.

Elsie comments: "Understanding horse color enables us to identify horses accurately. Accurate identification is the key ingredient in understanding the genetic basis of color. We all recognize that the two main groups of horse colors are those with black points and those with non black points.

The specific combination of point color and body color are what determines most horse colors. Another thing to consider is that white in markings and pattern is not the absence of all color but rather that white is superimposed on what would have been the specific body or point color.

A horse's final color results from the interaction of several independent processes, which can dilute, modify or restrict color."

The Canadian Futurity is major event held annually as an opportunity for breeders of Canadian registered Tennessee Walking Horses to have their young horses assessed by a highly qualified judge who is particularly interested in natural gait and sound conformation.

Judging for “the Canadian” is done with an individual evaluation system, one-of-its-kind for TWH in North America. Fair but tough, the system provides the owner/breeder of each horse with an individual score card with valuable information with which improvements to breeding programs can be made.

To learn more about the TWH and futurity in Canada, contact Dianne Little at ( 403 ) 271-7391 or visit the website.

The Alabama State Horse since 1975, the Racking Horse has been legendary for its beauty, stamina, smooth gait and calm disposition since its days as working horses on the great southern plantations before the Civil War. Considered a "light" horse in comparison with other breeds, the “racker” averages 15.2 hands and weighing 1,000 pounds. The "rack" of the Racking Horse is a natural, bi-lateral four-beat gait which is neither a pace nor a trot.
The RHBAA has an excellent Web site at and offers programs such as: Futurity Breeders' Association, Pleasure Association, Professional Trainers' Association, Amateurs' Association, Juvenile Auxiliary and Ladies Auxiliary.
Registered Racking Horses are presently found throughout the United States and in several foreign countries. Over 80,000 horses are registered with the RHBAA.

Racking registration option for many Walkers

With many Walking Horses double registered as Racking Horses, it’s important to learn the procedure for Racking registration for your youngsters.
The Racking Horse Breeders Association of America has two registration procedures. First is “pedigree registration” involving a foal by and out of registered Racking Horses. Sire, dam, and foal must all be blood-typed before a registration is complete.
Second, the RHBAA has also re-opened its books for registration, meaning that you may have your horse “commission registered” if is performing a four-beat gait verified by a licensed commissioner. All commission registered horses born in 1994 and after must be blood-typed to be registered.

horses. They were almost immediately confronted by a crowd of approximately
150 people who demanded that all horses be allowed to show and were told that the three entries eligible to show would not be going into the ring.

As the crowd continued to build, law enforcement officers escorted the show officials from the warm-up area and took them to the Celebration Administrative offices and the announcement was made that the class would not take place.

The Celebration deeply regrets having to cancel our World Grand Championship class for the first time in 68 years but we were unwilling to compromise the health and safety of our fans, horses, personnel and exhibitors.

We extend our deepest sympathy to all of those affected by this difficult decision and thank you for your continued support of our show during this most challenging season for the entire industry.

For the first time in its 68-year history, the Walking Horse Celebratiuon ended Saturday, Sept. 2 without crowning a World Champion. Following is an official news release issued by the Celebration:

The decision to cancel the final class of the 2006 Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration was based upon the best information available to show management from the inspection area and from law enforcement officials.

Tennessee Highway Patrol officers informed Celebration officials that they were confident they could protect the safety of the people working in the inspection area but did not have the manpower available to assure the health and safety of the 26,000 spectators, exhibitors and horses.

When show officials entered the warm-up area to check if the three entries eligible for the class were going to show, they were unable to reach the
