DOBSON, N.C. - The 2nd Annual Surry County Foothills Classic Horse Show was held Oct. 21, 2000, at Fisher River Park in Dobson, N.C. Mother Nature provided a gorgeous fall day for the event, which started at 1:00.

The show was affiliated with NCWHA and the KWHA HIO. The judge of the show was Mike Conley. The announcer was Willis Bodenhamer and Ricky Arrington was the ringmaster.
