Brown to Judge This Year’s Germantown Charity Horse Show



Charlie Brown of Princeton, Ky., will judge the Walking, Racking and Single-Footing classes at this year’s 66th Annual Germantown Charity Horse Show.  The show is scheduled for June 3-7 right outside of Memphis in Germantown, Tenn.  The Walking and Racking classes will be held June 5, 6, and 7th.

The Walking Horse division is affiliated with the Walking Horse Owners’ Association (WHOA) and offers over $10,000 in prize money in All Day Pleasure, Classic Park Pleasure, Country Pleasure, Lite Shod and Trail Pleasure classes.  Pleasure Driving, Model and Trail Obstacle are also part of the schedule.

The Racking Horses division features classes for Speed Horses, Trail Pleasure, Flat Shod, Country Pleasure and Pleasure Racking.  Over $6,000 in prize money is being offered including a $1,500 Speed Racking Finals, $1,500 Trail Pleasure Championship, and $1,500 Country Pleasure Championship.  The Racking Horse classes are affiliated with the Racking Horse Breeders’ Association of America (RHBAA).

New this year are Single-Footing classes, affiliated with the Single-Footing Horse Owners’ & Breeders’ Association (SHOBA).  Single-Footing is simply a term old timers used to describe the footfall of a horse's hooves and is also known as racking or the largo. A true Single-Footing horse performs an even timed, 4 beat gait from a relaxed trail gait to the ground covering single-foot in which the horse is moving with one foot on the ground at a time.

For more information and to reserve stalls, call Mark Farrar at 615-604-4616 or email GCHSmanager@gmail.com.  You can also visit the show’s website, www.GCHS.org.
