GALLATIN, Tenn. – The Gallatin Lions Club worked diligently through tough weather conditions to prepare the Sumner County Fairgrounds for the 52nd annual Gallatin Lions Club Horse Show. Just before show time the sky was clear and all was set for what looked like what was going to be a prosperous horse show. Judge Nathan Clark from Arab, Ala., was on hand to mark the cards for what was to be a 30-class event, including seven Riders’ Cup classes.

The United States Department of Agriculture had representatives in attendance as well and the inspection process took on a very different tone. In attendance from the USDA were three VMOs, Dr. Kirsten, Dr. Hamel and Dr. Binkley, two videographers and one security person.

There were 15 horses presented for inspection with two horses ticketed for unilateral sore and one for scar rule. Only five classes of the 30 on the schedule had entries.
