From The President

David W. Williams

We are at the end of another year. Since 1935 The Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders’ and
Exhibitors’ Association has Preserved, Promoted and Protected the wonderful American breed
of horse, The Tennessee Walking Horse.
These last few days of my term as President, causes me to reflect on those that came before me. From
our first President Burt Hunter, through the many well-respected individuals who took the mantle of our
breed association and continued the task of Preserving, Promoting and Protecting our great breed. I hope
on reflection that I too have made an impact in the continuation of the advancement of our breed

I want to thank our wonderful professional staff who professionally serve our members each day. I want
to thank our members for their continued support of TWHBEA. I also want to thank our breeders of this
great breed who improve the foundation traits with each generation.

As I pass my gavel to our next President, I can assure you I will still be heavily active with our breed
association. This breed has not only provided me enjoyment from an avocation viewpoint but also has
provided for my family as my occupation.

I would like to leave you, our wonderful Tennessee Walking Horse enthusiasts, with this one parting
thought that I hope you can reflect on from time to time.

“What have I done lately to promote this great breed I enjoy so much?”
From as little as talking about our great horse to your neighbors or promoting it to a nationwide
audience, everything positive, no matter what size, makes our breed that much greater.

Again, As Always, it has been my pleasure and great honor to be your President.

David W. Williams
President TWHBEA

BJ Campbell-Franck and
Carmen Franck Flippin

A mother-daughter duo

BJ Campbell-Franck and Carmen Franck Flippin, this mother
and daughter duo have made walking horses a family affair. BJ lives
north of the Richmond, Virginia area and Carmen lives south of the
Richmond, Virginia area. They have always lived in Virginia.

BJ, her husband and Carmen’s father Robert H. Franck and Car-
men are all veterinarians. Carmen has specialized as an equine vet.

Carmen started riding on a donkey then rode thoroughbreds
with a friend and her husband, Dustin Flippin, but walking horses
are now the breed of choice.

BJ got her first walking horse in 1995. She was having hip trou-
ble and that is what brought her to the walking horse. BJ and Car-
men came to the Celebration in 1996 and showed at the Celebration
in 1997. BJ won her first world grand championship in 2018 in the
Owner/Amateur Novice Trail Pleasure class on Legend Of Zelda
and co-owns Smooth Talker with Carmen. Both of these horses

are trained by Justus Carter Stables.
Justus (Bub) and wife Beverly are also
close friends. Besides the show ring
BJ trail rides in the fall.

Carmen loves all things equine.
She does fox hunting, endurance,
versatility and mounted shooting.
She is passing on her love of horses to
her step daughters Masy, 6 and Emy,
10. Carmen shows in the amateur
owned and trained three gait division
and has 6 equitation reserve world
grand championships.

I enjoyed getting to know these
ladies and their love of horses and
enthusiasm for the Tennessee Walk-
ing Horse makes them great ambas-
sadors of our breed.
