DUNGANNON, VA. - May 23, 2009 marked the date for the Scott County Regional Horse Association second annual Walking & Racking Extravaganza. After six years of longing for a horse facility they could call their own, the club was blessed with a dream come true and the Scott County Horse Park was born. They invited all to be a part of the association in which friends can enjoy this wonderful horse, with monthly scheduled trail rides and wagon trains. Their most precious investment are the youth and their goal is to promote youth involvement and assist in building their self esteem. So far in 2009, SCRHA has donated around $3,000 in support of other community projects: Hope House Of Scott County, Small Miracles and funding of re-building the High Knob Tower. Their motto is, “Life doesn’t require that we be the best, only that we try our best.”

There were 35 walking and racking classes offered with Lonnie Messick judging the walking and Curtis Thompson judging the URHOEA racking classes. The fans, families and friends enjoyed many talented horses and a great show.

The Walking Horse Stake was won by the talented team of Paul Livingston aboard Irresistible Cash for owners McSpadden and Livingston. Reserve in the class went to Wayne Conley in the irons aboard Legacy Of Ritz for Liz Hicks.
