The 21st Annual WHOA/Kiwanis Show Was A Daytime Event



by Stephanie Rose

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. – One hundred and eighty-seven entries made the gate call at the 21st annual WHOA/Kiwanis Show. It went on even though there were some changes to this year’s show. The ring at the park in Murfreesboro where the show was usually held was torn down this past year and the show was moved to Glen Oaks Farm, which is located down Barfield-Crescent Road. The show began promptly at 10 a.m. on June 27, 2009. This show has changed to WHOA’s new pleasure horse style show with many pleasure classes and six performance divisions for a total of 35 classes. The show was a casual dress event and riding suits were discouraged. The temperature was very warm, but thankfully the concession stand had plenty of cold drinks and water. They also had delicious hamburgers. Judy Martin of Shelbyville, Tenn., marked the cards for the show.

WHOA would like to thank Womack Stables for hosting the event. They would also like to give a special thank you to Winner’s Circle Supply in Shelbyville, Tenn., for donating a goody bag of sample horse products to each winner and for the western saddle donation. Each exhibitor was given a numbered ticket for the western saddle drawing, which made it advantageous to show more in order to have a greater chance to win. Charlie Howard of Murfreesboro, Tenn., had the winning ticket. Many of the WHOA shows this year have been included in a cash/prize giveaway program. The exhibitors at the show seemed very positive about the way the show went and how it was ran.
