DECATUR, Ala. – The second weekend in August once again brought about the WHAA Charity Horse Show and Alabama Futurity. This year the show was held Saturday, Aug. 8, 2009, at the Racking Horse Celebration Arena in Decatur, Ala. Marty Irby served as judge for the 34-class event, which included classes for everyone’s liking.

Rounding out the evening was the team of Freedom Fighter and Charlie Green, who were called from the lineup to receive the blue ribbon honors in the Riders’ Cup Walking Horse Stake class. This team has a previous 2009 victory at the Jack Keltner Memorial in Summertown, Tenn., for proud owners Dennis and Rusty Shoffner.
