Black Horsewoman Says She Was Charged $5,000 To Enter Walking Horse Show, While Others Got In Free

A black female has sued the Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration, Inc. (SHOW) on grounds that she was charged $5,000 to enter the current national show at Shelbyville, Tn., while others did not have to pay a fee.

Natalie Jackson-Pritchard, in the suit in Chattanooga Federal Court, is asking $100,000 compensatory damages and $10 million punitive damages.

Ms. Jackson-Pritchard, a horsewoman who has been a critic of SHOW leadership, is claiming racial discrimination in the complaint, which was assigned to Judge Sandy Mattice.
