Jubilee's Bossman Adds To Stake Wins



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 proceeds for the 27-class show go to benefit the Children’s Center of Surry County. Show Chairman Gary Lindsey was pleased with the turnout, as there were other shows scheduled for the same date on the show circuit. There were 69 entries in the 18 walking horse classes. 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.
