The Illinois Walking Horse Association is an organization dedicated to promote the Tennessee Walking Horse. Our organization was established in 1967 when a group of horsemen from Springfield, IL decided it was time for Illinois to advance our breed into the show world.
Our membership welcomes all who are interested in the Tennessee Walking Horse. We sponsor activities to create enthusiasm for the breed and encourage participation of all ages and abililities of exhibitors.
Annual activities include trail rides, horse shows, youth programs, versatility events, clinics, and much more.
