HUNTINGDON, Tenn .- The Billy M. Cary Memorial Walking Horse show was held Saturday May 16, at the Huntingdon Civic Center. Hoofbeats of Hope, which is a Premier Accredited Center through the North American Riding for the Handicap, provided the flag horse for the evening. This non-profit organization serves 30 riders per week using nine horses. They are located in Puryear, Tenn.

This is the show where they have the popular Cow Plop. The winner received $1,500 this year. The show was down in horses, but the horses that were there were worth watching.

Jeff Willis of Shelbyville, Tenn., was the judge for the 27-class event. Edgar Abernathy and the black stallion Cadillac’s Bum took their second victory pass as a team in the Riders’ Cup Stake Class for owner, Pam Betts. Second went to Jimmy McConnell and Up For Parole for Robert Jones. Third was Jazz On Bourbon and Joseph Abernathy for Danny and Lisa Palmer.
