Armorall Is Baileyton’s Walking Stake Champion



by Julia Livingston


            BAILEYTON, Tenn. – The Baileyton Horse Show held their rain out date on Sept. 29, 2007. Their host for this great show was the Baileyton Elementary School. The sponsors since 1982 have been the Baileyton Rutitan Club and the United Volunteer Fire Department along with Show Manager R.B. Barkley Jr. and his supportive wife, Cora Sue.

            From this horse show alone, the Ruritan Club was able to give $500 towards each project: a scholarship, bicycles for elementary perfect attendance, Northside Food Bank building fund, juvenile cancer patent, zone lights for school, historical society and cures for diabetes. They also spent 750 hours sitting with sick and shut-ins. There is a reason the stands were packed, chairs were lined up tight and parking lots and even adjoining hay fields were full of horse trailers, neighbors, friends, family and fans.

            There were 32 classes offered in walking and racking. Jerry Derryberry was the walking judge and Gene Frye judged the URHOEA Racking classes. Making the gate calls were 203 entries.

            Taking top honors in the Walking Horse Stake class was the powerful Armorall with Bill Reel in the irons, delivering the blue for new owner Bob Michael. Major Genuis and John Anderson commanded their way to the reserve for Walt Tittle.
