Armed With An Alibi was Victorious at Parker’s Crossroads

by Debbie Graham

CROSSROADS, Tenn. - The 2008 Parker’s Crossroads Walking Horse Show was held on July 26 in Parker’s Crossroads, Tenn. The event was held in the beautiful Parker’s Crossroads City Park and was sponsored by the Wildersville-Beaver Ruritan Club. Proceeds from the show go to the assistance of community efforts in education, scholarships, benevolent work with cancer patients and other catastrophic illness, senior citizens and the Boy Scouts of America.

The 2008 edition was dedicated to Bill Olive who passed away in 2007. Olive was a charter member of the Wildersville-Ruritan Club and a pillar of the community. Many years ago he had a vision for a city park with equine facilities, softball fields, picnic tables, a pavilion, a playground, a building for inside activities and a walking track. Olive and his brother, Achlee, donated the land that is now the Parker’s Crossroads City Park and also the home of the Parker’s Crossroads Walking Horse Show. The park also now features an amphitheatre.

Greg Pate judged the 29 classes. The final class of the evening was the Walking Horse Stake Riders’ Cup class. Armed With An Alibi and Casey Wright were awarded the Parker’s Crossroad’s tricolor and roses for owners Clyde and Grace Robertson following a recent stake title at the Chester County Lions Club Horse Show.
