Gen’s Major Event Claims Hardeman County Title

by Debbie Graham

BOLIVAR, Tenn. - The second annual Hardeman County Rescue Squad Walking Horse Show was held on June 27, 2008, at the Hardeman County Fairgrounds in Bolivar, Tenn. The Hardeman County Rescue Squad sponsored the event. The squad was established in February 1982 and covers approximately 700 square road miles throughout the county. It provides all land search and rescue, vehicle rescue, swift water, farm, big rig, trench and school bus rescue. Hosting events such as the horse show enables the squad to provide these services free of charge to citizens of the county.

Dujuana Weaver, show chairman, and the rescue squad members produced a successful event that drew 157 entries. Jimmy Carnathan traveled from Plantersville, Miss., to judged the 30 classes.

In the final class of the evening, the Walking Horse Stake Riders’ Cup class, Gen’s Major Event and Jimmy McConnell received the Hardeman County Rescue Squad tricolor ribbon and floral horseshoe for owner John Alford.
