Fall Festival Draws Wisconsin's Walkers



by Jean Baum
ELKHORN, Wis. - In spite of its being held on Labor Day - two days after the Celebration ends - and in spite of the fact that many Wisconsin people attended the Celebration and couldn't get back in time, the WWHA Fall Festival still had a respectable 164 entries. The convenient Walworth County Fairgrounds was once again the location for the Wisconsin Walking Horse Association-sponsored show.

Stacy Woodlee of Lewisburg, Tenn., was the man with the pencil and he put in a full day judging the 38 classes.

Once again two horse and rider combinations dominated the win column just as they'd done earlier at Oshkosh: Bum’s Away and Raelynn Greenwood had six wins, and Ideal’s Carbon Gray (Boomer) and Lynne Levy garnered five. Trailing close behind with four was Hand Paint’d Lady, with two different riders as usual, Don Schetter and daughter/owner Kim Sizer. Kim’s Bum’s Pure Dynamite conquered two game classes wining both barrels and poles.

Five combinations came away with two blues each. Just About Right was certainly that, shown by Ellen Leake and owned by Ellen and husband Andy. Dillon and Sue Schulz's Generator’s Coal Dust also walked to victory twice. Black Cloud’s Miss QB, with both Amanda and Matt Huebner taking turns, and Renate Daniel's Generator’s Shocking Beauty made the winner's circle twice as well.

Teresa Dietz shows two nice horses at most of the shows, and again won a trophy with each, Hard As Cash Surprise and Thriller’s Afternoon Delite.

Eight happy exhibitors and their horses rode to the winner’s circle once: Winston’s Dictator, Gold Coin Hero, Kay’s X-Rated Copy, Turn On The Pride, One Thrilling Dance, Generator’s Magic Stroll, Pride’s Power Of Faith and Legend’s Gold.
