Sen. Lamar Alexander is scheduled to visit the Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration on Monday night.
Alexander will visit center ring and make a presentation to a class winner, according to a TWHNC press release Saturday.
The Republican senator and former Tennessee governor will attend as a guest of Steve Smith, a Tennessee walking horse breeder from Brentwood and member of the breed's Hall of Fame.
"We are excited that Sen Alexander will attend the 73rd annual Celebration," CEO Dr. Doyle Meadows said. "It is an honor for all of us to have the Senator in Shelbyville and support The Celebration and the contribution it makes to Tennessee."
Smith has been heavily involved in Alexander's election campaigns for several years. He served as national finance co-chair of Alexander's presidential campaigns and was finance chairman of his 2008 Senate campaign.
