Tribute to Moira Judas Smith

Tennessee Valley Paso Fino Horse Association has lost a long time beloved member. Moira Smith passed away Wednesday, November 14, 2018 at Vanderbilt Hospital. She leaves behind her husband, L. R. and daughter, Caroline.

Moira and her father were among founding members of the Tennessee Valley region. They were instrumental in writing our charter and bylaws. Mr. Judas brought some of the first Paso Finos into the United States from his service in Puerto Rico.

Moira was a very valuable member of Tennessee Valley as well as PFHA. She was a fierce competitor at regional and national levels. Ricky Mendoza was her trainer and Kay Chiappetta was her friend and mentor.

Moira will be missed by so many friends. Our love and prayers go to L. R. and Caroline.

Southern Equine Expo 2018

TVPFHA will be participating again this year in the Southern Equine Expo and demonstrating horses on Saturday, February 24. During our exhibition our goal is to show that Pasos can do anything. TVPFHA will also have a booth throughout the Expo. In addition, attendees will also be able to watch demonstrations by one of our breed’s most publicly recognized trainers and last year’s Southern Equine Expo Colt Starting Champion Michael Gascon. If you and/or your farm are interested in either joining us for the demonstration or volunteering at our booth, please PM Lee Ann Williams-Maley.

Please let Lee Ann Williams-Maley know if you are interested as soon as possible.
