Gee Whiz, What A Win At The South Carolina Ladies Auxiliary Show


by Stephanie Rose


CLEMSON, S.C. –The 18th annual Spring South Carolina Ladies Auxiliary Horse Show was held on April 11 and 12, 2008, in Clemson, S.C., at the state of the art facility, the T. Ed Garrison Arena, which is a part of Clemson University. The show manager was Landis Johnson. The funds from the show went to benefit the American Cancer Society.

The United States Department of Agriculture VMOs visited the show on Friday evening. This resulted in a decrease of entries, but the show went on as scheduled with several competitive classes. These teams did not come back to show on Saturday night. Joe Herald, Spencer Benedict and John Comley were the judges.

The blue ribbon tally was as follows: Grandy Tuck of Reidsville, N.C., had the most with eight blues. Johnny Puckett came all the way from Shelbyville, Tenn., and racked up seven blues. Wayne Helms from Locust, N.C., had six blues. Ronald Mosley, Mike Klutz and Robert Kellett each had four blues. 

The South Carolina Walking Horse Ladies Auxiliary thanks all of the trainers, owners and exhibitors for supporting the 18th annual Cancer Benefit Horse Show. Many thanks go out to the sponsors and friends who made donations to the show and the American Cancer Society. Also, thanks to the staff at Garrison Arena. The show would like to thank everyone for their kind comments about the show and is looking forward to a great show in April 2009, as they are "riding for a cure".
