Celebration selects Tunica judging panel


The Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration has selected Sam Sorrell, Robbie Spiller and Leigh Stuart to judge the Tunica F

The Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration has selected Sam Sorrell, Robbie Spiller and Leigh Stuart to judge the Tunica Fall Classic. The show will be held Nov. 2-4, 2017 at Paul Battle, Jr. Arena in Tunica, Mississippi.  

Both Sorrell and Stuart are veteran judges at Celebration events and this will mark Spiller’s first Celebration event to judge. Sorrell has previously judged the Fun Show and has marked the cards five different times at The Celebration, most recently in 2016.
 
Leigh Stuart has previously judged The Celebration three times, most recently in 2016. Stuart was on the pleasure panel at The Celebration in 1997.  

Spiller will be new to The Celebration but is not new to the major show circuit. She has judged the Mississippi Charity, Alabama Jubilee, Columbia Spring and on two occasions Fouth of July weekend shows in Middle Tennessee.
 
“The Celebration is really excited about this line up of judges,” said Celebration CEO Mike Inman. “With the quality-laden classes the Tunica Fall Classic is known for, this strong trio should do an excellent job.”
