Jazz Country And Smith Rode Out With Roses At Cookeville

by Stephanie Rose

COOKEVILLE, Tenn. - Many Tennesseans went to their first show of the season on Saturday, April 4, 2009, at the 36th annual Upper Cumberland Walking Horse Show. It was held at the Hyder-Burks Pavilion in Cookeville, Tenn., right by Tennessee Tech University. It was sponsored by the Cookeville Evening Lions Club and assisted by the Upper Cumberland Walking Horse Association. The association hosted a silent auction for horse related items and other things during the show.

The show began at 5 p.m. and had 29 classes, including two Riders’ Cup classes. Judy Martin of Shelbyville, Tenn., marked the cards for the evening and Victor Gernt of Cookeville, Tenn., was master of ceremonies. Many trainers came from Middle Tennessee, Kentucky and the surrounding areas to show.

Five entries made it into the ring for the Walking Horse Stake Championship. Jazz Country and Tim Smith made a fantastic show and came out with the blue for G.L. and Beverly McNeill. Jazz N Ebony and Josh Walls were reserve for Beal and Greer. Mayday Jazz and Scott Beaty were third and I’ll Be Good and Webby Burch rounded out the top four.
