PROGRAMS & PROJECTS
FAST has a variety of projects that it works to to provide support and resources.
FAST Gala & SHOW
This marks the foundations most important annual event to provide resources for the foundations continued operation.
On more than one occasion, FAST has provided resources to fund critical reserach to support the industry's position that our horses are in compliance with the HPA
Throughout its history, the foundation has participated in critical legal funding that has savied the show horse from undue regulatory initiatives.
FAST is committee to continuing to support education initiatives that provide a front line look at our horse, its versatility and its endurance wheterh as a show horse, trail horse or versatility horse.
Horse Show Development
New and revived shows are able to apply for a grant to support a newly formed show or a show that is being revived following a period of absence. FAST strongly supports the continue exhibition of our show horse.
Marketing & Promotion
A great deal of misinformation is perpetuated about our horse by animal rights activist groups who are determined to undermine the show horse industry. As a result, the industry must continue to work assertively to brand and market our horse for the versatile, docile and endurance horse that it is.
As funds are available, FAST has distributed scholarships to youth within the walking horse show industry to further their education at the college, junior college or technical school. An application process is required.
