Full Moon Over Elkton was Bright Red

by Kay Swisher

ELKTON, Va. - 2008 marked the centennial for the town of Elkton, Va., and the Elkton Historical Society celebrated by hosting their 25th annual horse show on Saturday, Sept. 13, 2008. The show rolled out the red carpet for the 438 entries during the two-session show. Along with the appropriate ribbon and prize money for each placing, first place winners won a plaque commemorating their win with the anniversary logo and gold medallion. Various classes had a purse drawing; a name was drawn from the exhibitors in that class and they were awarded $25.

Rick and Debbie Maiden were recognized with a plaque by the Historical Society for their time and hard work that they have given over the years to the horse show.

 Gene Frye of Taylorsville, N.C., judged the day-long show in abnormal 90-degree heat. Although by the time the Stake class entered the ring it had cooled down, it was red hot as Bill Reel debuted the Bob Michael entry Bright Red to win the floral horseshoe and all the goodies received by the stake winner. It was a night for beautiful bay horses as Mike Mongold and Pusher’s Mahogany Bay claimed the reserve award.
