Bill Callaway Presented A Masterpiece At Lynchburg



LYNCHBURG, Tenn. – The 23rd annual Moore County Horse Show was held once again in the historic town of Lynchburg, Tenn. This town is nestled in a valley amidst rolling green hills and is known for its many attractions including the Jack Daniel’s Distillery, the Walking Horse Museum and its famous restaurants and unique stores on the square. Each year, Lynchburg holds its horse show that attracts large crowds and the best horses of the industry.

This show is known for its excellent food, including hot beans and potatoes, ice cream and excellent desserts everyone enjoys before the excitement begins. On July 18, this quiet little town bustled when a steady stream of cars, trucks and trailers paraded across the square heading for the Thomas Wiseman Park. Lonnie Messick of Murfreesboro, Tenn., handled the judging of the many quality entries. Many of these horses are already world champions and several others are sure to go on to become one as the quality of this show is always superb. The USDA was in attendance with Drs. Susan Kingston and Ernest Johnson checking horses along side SHOW veterinarian Dr. Steve Mullins and the SHOW DQPs.

Charlie Green Stables and Dickie Scrivner of Tan View Farm topped the blue ribbon tally with five blues each. Callaway Stables, Winkie Groover Stables and Rising Star Ranch returned home with dual blues. The remaining blues went to Ashley Say, James Bailey, Brett Boyd Stables, Dr. Roger Richards, Mickey McCormick Stables, Connie Waldo, Jason Day Stables, Southern Comfort Training Facility, Bobby Richards, Webb Burch Stables, Brad Beard of Four The Glory, Jimmy Norris of Pollack’s Silver Spur Ranch, Jeff Green of Shamrock Stables and Chad Williams Stables.

The crowd anxiously waited while Messick selected the 2009 Lynchburg Grand Champion from the six excellent contenders. Skywatch’s Masterpiece and Bill Callaway made the victory pass in the Riders’ Cup Stake. This stallion, owned by Bill Hill, stepped out in elegant style. The team also claimed the stake class at the Alabama Ladies Auxiliary Show this year in their debut performance.
