Cumberland County Hosts 255 Entries



by Linda Fox

CROSSVILLE, Tenn. - Thanks to the hard work, planning and forethought of Show Manager Robbie Bottoms-Casteel, along with much help from family, friends and her 4-H club, the fourth annual Cumberland County Open Walking Horse Show operated like clockwork and was a huge success.

The show was held Saturday, June 16, 2009, at 6 p.m. at the Cumberland County Community Complex, in Crossville, Tenn., and featured some of the best equine talents and trainers the walking horse world has to offer. Good food and a silent auction with lots of goodies made the show a hit with everyone.

Jeff Green traveled east from Shelbyville, Tenn., to mark the cards for the 30-class event. Crossville’s Bradley Bottoms was the ringmaster and Thurman Walden presided as the master of ceremonies. Wayne Nabors supplied the show music at the organ while Joe Meade was the official farrier. Photographer Matt Morehead worked in center ring capturing those great action shots.

The Robert Bottoms Memorial Walking Horse Stake class brought the evening to a close as spectators watched Scott Beaty and his World Champion Mister Pushbutton called to the winner’s circle for the Fred Allred family. Knox Blackburn and Command Again picked up the red streamer for What a Blessing Farm and the Jo Ann Dowell owned-entry Incredible and Jeff Givens got the third place nod.
