Gov. Bill Haslam visited the Celebration on Sunday night and was honored at center ring.

State Rep. Pat Marsh and Celebration CEO Dr. Doyle Meadows presented the governor with a tri-colored ribbon. Ring announcer Bobby Sands, in announcing the presentation, indicated that Haslam had helped the walking horse industry by passing along some of its concerns to U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack.

The governor plans to attend the Republican National Convention later this week in Tampa, Fla.
