This is HUGE news, folks! I just found out from the NWHA news webpage that the USEF UNANIMOUSLY approved NWHA for their national affiliation membership.
It is extremely important to note that the USEF has traditionally shunned the TWH world due to the continuing problems with soring. This is a MASSIVE step towards the TWH not only be recognized as a "real" breed but also to the USEF (hopefully) eventually approving their rulebook. This is also a step towards those who show with NWHA earning USEF points and affiliations as well.
CONGRATULATIONS NWHA! Everyone, be sure to write to the USEF and thank them for their approval!
