Jefferson County Show a Big Success



by Jean Baum

The shows keep growing bigger and bigger. This Wisconsin Walking Horse Association-sponsored event, held at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds in Jefferson, Wis., drew 210 entries in a one-day show.

The judge, Jennifer Bingham from Shelbyville, Tenn., did an excellent job in tying the good-sized classes, many of them filled with 12, 14, or 17 horses. It was a perfect day for a horse show, sunshiny and cloudless.

Three horse and rider combinations came out on top FOUR times, which was quite an accomplishment considering the size of many of the classes. These three were Generator’s Coal Dust, with Jacob and Dillon sharing the reins. This horse has done extremely well all season. Ideal Carbon Grey (Boomer) with his accomplished rider Lynne Levy up and Busting With Charisma, a good juvenile horse rider by Kendel Domres for Cindy and John Linstedt.

Bay on the Loose is a brand new acquisition for Amy Spinelli-Gourlay, and she celebrated by winning three classes. Amy had a BIG day, as she won two other classes on I’m Taking Charge, owned by her parents, Ruth Ann and Chuck Spinelli, and again walked to victory on Hankerin To Push for her dad, who was also victorious on this horse to add to the Spinellis’ smiles of happiness, Ruth Ann won with two different horses, Widowmaker’s Rare Spirit, and Tornado Appeal. What a joyous day they had!

Others with two rides down victory lane were Another Merry Midnight and Amy Hartwig, Sundrop’s Country Razen and Rebecca Cox, and Bob Dillon’s Ebony Threat with both owner Carl Dickson and Raelynn Greenwood each taking one.

Walking to the blue one big time each were Doing Time in Texas and Marianne Springer, Beam’s Rusty Treasure and Pat Lisko, Grandy’s Fancy Lady and Martha Crawford, Hand Paint’d Lady and cute little Andria Madison, Gen’s Alternated Powerwalk and Raelynn Greenwood for Carl Dickson, That’s My Pride Jubilee and Beth Foat, High Class Gift and Katie Butler, and Sundrop’s Angel and Diane Ramskugler.
