CYNTHIANA, Ky. – The Cynthiana Walking Horse Show took place on May 30, 2009. Originally, the show was to be held in Cynthiana, Ky., but due to construction the show was moved to Owenton, Ky., at the Owen County Fairgrounds. When the Ohio Valley Walking Horse Association learned that Kentucky might lose one of its better shows, it decided to sponsor the Cynthiana show. Good weather was a plus and many attended to make the event a success. Wayne Conley of East Tennessee judged the 31-class horse show.

Martin Stables of Owenton claimed five first place ties and four reserves, leading the blue ribbon tally. Oliver Stables came in second on the tally, claiming three blues. Brandi Mills captured two blues for the night, as did Ping Stables, Jackson Stables and Hayes Stables.

The OVWHA invited everyone back next year to the Cynthiana location to have a great time. Complete results may be viewed by clicking here.
