Hickman Strides In Dixon



by Jennifer Maack-Condren

DIXON, Mo. - The 60th annual Dixon Horse Show was July 25 at the Dixon Saddle Club. This show is well known for its quality horses and beautiful grounds. Efforts of many long-time Saddle Club members is evident with the efficiency in which the show operated. Keith Inman of Salem, Mo., served as the judge for the walking horse classes.

It was a special day for Margaret Hickman as this was her 40th anniversary of her Tennessee Walking Horse debut at this horse show. She showed Special’s Flair in the Juvenile class and received fifth place. Forty years later, she returned to claim the Open Walking Horse class as a young trainer aboard Jose’s Strider with her family and friends cheering her on from the rail for the 4-J Land and Cattle Co. Jim Huffman and Stroker’s Allen received the reserve tie in the class for Jim and Donna Huffman.

Jerry Manes Stables took home a total of six blues for their efforts with Famous Bad Boy, Mr. Black Sundust, Shak, Pushin’ Miller Time, Just Walk Away and Jose’s Strider. 4-J Land and Cattle Co and the Laughlin family took home five blues as they captured wins in the Open Model, Park Pleasure, Lite-Shod, Trail Pleasure and Park Performance classes with Shorty, JFK’s Fancy Lady Leslie, Ultra Ritzy, Aspen Jewel and Mega Wanted.

Anne Hardin Stables earned two blues to make their trip home to DeSoto a little sweeter. Anne Hardin made the victory pass with Jumbotron in the Three-Year-Old Open class and Adam Carlyon directed Cargo’s Royal Impression to the winner’s circle in the Open Amateur class.

The Saddle Club and community are dedicated groups that put this show on year after year. The names of the Sloans and the Withers were echoed throughout the evening as these families have been the backbone of this show for years.
