WALT CHISM – Subj: Re: Now That’s a Walking Horse!
Texas Director Everett “Butch” Allen was roundly criticized by TWHBEA Sound Directors for setting off Witch Hunt Two against Pat Stout after Witch Hunt One had been concluded with the prior TWHBEA Executive Committee exonerating Pat Stout of any wrong doing on December 5, 2013.
On December 7, 2013, “Butch” Allen made a Motion to send the Pat Stout matter back to the Enforcement Committee. Adult Leader In Charge President Steve Smith along with Tom “I’M A PROUD HPA VIOLATOR” formed a Lynch Mob subcommittee, and then the Steve Smith Executive Committee spitefully voted to indefinitely suspend Pat Stout’s membership privileges.

Subject: Re: Now That’s a Walking Horse!
ButchPam Reband’s motion to reinstate Pat Stout’s TWHBEA membership privileges was a gift to the BOD but was soundly defeated. If the BOD voted to accept the motion and reinstate Pat’s privileges it would have put an hurt on Pat’s complaint against TWHBEA. So Butch you created this mess can you explain why it was so important to continue this witch hunt against Pat when it was settled?”
EVERETT “BUTCH” ALLEN TO SOUND DIRECTOR
” I did not start this mess Pat Stout did. she used everyone’s contact information without proper permission. She used the TWHBEA logo without permission and then that problem was compounded when copies were made and sent to who knows where. PAT could have avoided this by answering all the questions put to her by the EC. I could be wrong but as I understand it if PAT just answers the questions that the EC has that her membership would be up for reinstatement. As for your typical negative statements this is not a witch hunt (your words). Striving to reach the facts is always worth the effort. Why don’t you join the positive effort about our horse. How about you supporting the thought that the TWH registry is here to support all TWH from bare-foot to padded, how about you supporting my right as an American to decide what type of shoe I put on my horse. You know even though you and those who think like you continue to discriminate against all TWHs except the kind that you ride, I will continue to work hard for you to have the right to make the decision as to which kind of horse you ride. Will do the same for me? How about you start promoting the attributes of all TWHs. You and others like you believe that those that like me do not like how you ride or what you do with your TWH, let me make it clear I have nothing against what you or pam do with your horse I support your right to shoe your horse, ride your horse any way you want. I hope the bare-foot keg shod TWH grows in popularity. I also want the same for TWHs with Park Pleasure Shoes, bands, action device and pads. In other words I will continue to work hard for all TWHs. How about you joining the positive effort and support all TWHs. As for those of you that can not support all TWHs how about you join FOSH, WHOA or any other group with your same believes.”
NOTE: Mr. Allen appears to be under the same delusion that Mr. Chism is that HE “didn’t start this mess”. Actually, Mr. Allen did start “the mess” because after the prior Executive Committee on December 5, 2013 exonerated Pat Stout of all wrong doing, THEN, on December 7, 2013, Mr. Allen made a Motion to start Witch Hunt Two all over again. Someone needs to explain to Mr. Allen that his ill-advised Motion has already cost TWHBEA $10,000.00, and in all probability he will be looking at a six figure price tag before it’s over.
FURTHER NOTE: Last week, Everett “Butch” Allen must have been further dismayed to learn that three Texas conservative Republican Representatives Bill Flores (R-TX), Blake Farenthold (R-TX) and Republican Representative Kay Granger (R-TX) all co-sponsored the PAST ACT last week.
STEVE SMITH/WALT CHISM SPIRALING TWHBEA TOWARD BANKRUPTCY
Two weeks ago TWHBEA President Steve Smith haughtily declared “adult leadership”was in place at the breed registry, and then he mendaciously proclaimed “158 days of fabulous progress”.
Then Elder Smith made two new moves of desperation latest week which confirmed the TWHBEA’S perilous financial plight.
SMITH’S DESPERATION MOVE NUMBER ONE
ADULT IN CHARGE President Smith rolled out:
“TWHBEA ANNOUNCES MEMBERSHIP DRIVE
Insiders are calling it: STEVE’s “TWHBEA DONUT RESTORATION DRIVE”.
“LEWISBURG, Tenn. ““ The Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders’ and Exhibitors’ Association (TWHBEA) announces a new membership drive effective immediately. Any new or existing (non-youth) member renewals between now and August 1 will be eligible to win a prize package that includes a black Tennessean Trail Saddle along with a box seat and two tickets to the Hall of Fame Club at the TWHBEA National Futurity.
Harold and Hirman were talking up at Hilltop Market this week.
Hiram said Steve and Walt must have put in incentives that they would have “wanted”.
- Everybody who rides already has a nice trail saddle.
- Anybody who wants a Sound Natural Tennessee Walking Horse wouldn’t be caught dead with a Box Seat or to be in the Hall of Fame Club at the TWHBEA National Futurity.
Here’s the crowd at the recent FUN SHOW:
The “NUTSO” Steve Smith incentives show just how far out of touch the two Grumpy Old Men – Steve Smith and Walt Chism really are.
They apparently do not realize that the reason TWHBEA memberships are plummeting is the STEVE SMITH/WALT CHISM effort to defend the reprehensible sore Big Lick Tennessee Walking Horse of which America wants no part.
Neither do horse show crowds in Middle Tennessee either.
63% of the TWHBEA Members told them last October 2013.
66% of the U. S. House of Representatives told them in June 2014.
DESPERATION MOVE NUMBER TWO
”RESET CLOCK LATE FEES CLOCK TO JUNE 1″
Basically, the TWHBEA members are so disappointed in Steve Smith and Walt Chism that they have decided to just NOT register anything or transfer anything which deprives TWHBEA of cash flow. According to Tracy Boyd, TWHBEA will now give members a chance to go ahead and register Horses or transfer them and avoid any late fees. This will last from June 1 to July 1, then late fees will start accumulating again. Persons will be allowed to register and transfer through the end of the year.
Nephew Eugene has a friend who says TWHBEA has been feverishly calling members who have not renewed their memberships, but the positive response have been dismal.
TWHBEA is bleeding out because of the actions of Steve Smith and Walt Chism.
Here is the overview on the declining membership:
- TWHBEA has been losing approximately 75 ““ 100 members a month since September 2013.
- In April 2014, the decrease was 225 members a month.
- In April 2014, the monthly revenue decreased $23,170.00, 54% from April 2012.
- The membership has declined from 6,950 eligible to vote on September 10, 2013 to approximately 6,350 in mid-March 2014.
- It is estimated that the eligible to vote TWHBEA members is now 6,125.
- Continuing this trend, TWHBEA will lose 2,325 members in 12 months from Dec. 2013 ““ Nov. 2014.
- That will make TWHBEA eligible to vote members at 4,950 in 12 months ““ a 29% member decrease in 12 months.
Nephew Eugene thinks that the “Adults In Charge” are doing one heckuva job, and it would be nice that if Texas Director Everett “Butch” Allen would write TWHBEA a $10,000.00 personal check for what his daft Motion is going to cost TWHBEA.
