Eurocheval Fair, Offenburg

Nicole Liebelt with her champion TWH gelding, Jim Knopf, made the most impressive show at the 2006 Eurocheval, unrolling a flag with smoke and thunder!

A bit more sedate participants at the Eurocheval representation of the TWH breed were Franziska Liebelt with gelding Beam's Playboy and Maryan Zyderveld with Pride's Dutch Dixie. The weather was blazing hot, but we were all dressed formally!
There the three of us are out at the show grounds, Franziska at left, Maryan and Nicole under the American flag, which is carried by the carriage, almost hidden from view, with driver Russell Walker Keyser.

In front of the participants, our banner was carried in: Get on.....Be moved....Smoothly...., this job was done on turns by some of the many helpers at the show, even by Mr. Charles Hulsey, our TWHBEA Executive Director, himself!
Not to forget our speaker at Offenburg's Eurocheval, TWHBEA Director for Germany, Frank Jugert, assisted by Margarete Malberg. In full swing, Frank is providing information on the breed and little stories on each of us, towering over the small ring where we gave a little demo several times a day, in more casual dress.

After one of the shows we made a group picture of all six participants, from left to right: Maryan, Nicole, Russell, Denise Bader, Franziska, Cathleen Balz, hidden behind us the helpers keeping the banner!

Wickrath, Mönchengladbach FRG

At the Wickrath Summer Fair (Mönchengladbach, Germany), organized by the Rheinisches Pferdestammbuch, various horsebreeds were presented, surely also the Tennessee Walking Horse. Two stallions approved by the Rheinisches Pferdestammbuch were shown, as well as a mare with foal. Able speaker commenting on the horses and the breed was the TWHBEA director for Germany, Frank Jugert.

Buster At Wickwrath - 2006

The two approved breeding stallions were shown in classical English show-outfit (Pushing Midnights Shade with Ulrike Munnes-Jugert up) and in Western style (Buster's Fair Leroy with Maryan Zyderveld up).

Here's a picture of Buster's Fair Leroy, being attentive to his rider and unimpressed by the multitude of onlookers!
