What’s Better Than Cash and Bill Reel Wear the Roses at Elkton



ELKTON, Virg. - The Elkton HIstorical Society held its 19th annual Elkton Horse Show on September 14, 2002 at the Blue Ridge Park. The Historical Society is a nonprofit organization whose proceeds from this show are used for continued restoration and maintenance of the Miller-Kite House, a registered State and National Landmark located in the town of Elkton. Stonewall Jackson once used the house as a Headquarters during his campaign through the Shenandoah Valley. It is now a Civil War Museum open to the public.

The show consisted of 72 classes and 462 entries. The honorable Denise Eaton of Bland, Virginia called the Walking Horse division. G.M. Hutchison, announcer and ringmaster John Roudabush kept the show moving along.

What’s Better Than Cash with Bill Reel in the irons for Bob and Edna Black wore the floral horseshoe in the prestigious Walking Horse Stake class. Bobby Moss rode Royal Counsel to the reserve honor.

The class that got the crowd going was the juvenile class and the young competitive riders. When it was time for the victory pass, young John Meade and Trial Run made the pass and Gold Series with Chad Funkhouser took reserve. The versatile horse Gen’s Sundrop with Roy Wagner, Jr. in the irons won two blues in the Lite Shod division.
