Ribbons are ready and horse show is here!




It’s that time of year again — the ribbons are ready and it’s time to roll out the red carpet for visitors in honor of the Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration Tricolor bows, symbolizing support of the show, run in various sizes and prices and are available an several local florists.

“It is a way for residents, visitors and businesses to show their support of The Celebration and to help create some interest and excitement as people drive around town or come in to town,” said Virginia Stewart, who has been behind the ribbon effort for many years. “It means a lot to us to have the support of local folks who hang a ribbon on the front of their home or business door.”

Bows run about $30 to $40 for a smaller size, $40-50 for medium, and $60-70 for the larger ones. For more information, contact Stewart at stewartv26@aol.com.
