America On Line and Scott Beaty Claim Pikeville Spring Show

by Linda Fox

PIKEVILLE, Tenn. - More than 200 contenders made the trip to the quaint, historical East Tennessee town of Pikeville to compete in the 34th annual Pikeville Spring Horse Show. The event was held on Saturday evening, June 7, 2008, at the Bledsoe/Pikeville Agriculture Complex and was sponsored by the Bledsoe County Fair Association.

Mike Carpenter judged the contenders while Chase Williams was kept busy providing the music for the show. Bryan Wyatt served as ringmaster and Steve Thurman sang the national anthem and led the invocation. Lee Morris was the official master of ceremonies.

This show always boasts a large gate count and enjoys a lot of local support. The proceeds go to deserving area youths in the form of scholarships and other support. The Bledsoe Fair Association wishes to thank each exhibitor, trainer and groom for his and her participation. The association also wants to express its appreciation to its sponsors for their continued support and invites everyone back for the 2009 spring show held on the first Saturday night in June.
The Walking Horse Riders’ Cup Championship was called to the ring and when Judge Carpenter made his final decision, it was the handsome grey stallion, America On Line and trainer Scott Beaty who were called to the winner’s circle. America On Line is owned by Darrell Frazier of Jamestown, Tenn.
