Lake Laurel Horse Show



CORBIN, Ky-June 5 was a muggy Saturday evening. The previous week's flood had left the ground saturated and muddy. Still, the trainers and exhibitors came out to support the Lake Laurel Horse Show in Corbin, Ky. Jeff Willis was the judge. Dana Doyle was the photographer, and Gene Beckner was the announcer.

The lead line class kicked the show off with eight entries. Judge Willis started the show off right by giving all the cute little riders a blue ribbon. Next to the ring was the Country Pleasure Racking. Shai Radder directed Pts Black Shadow to the blue. The Grand Finale and Julie Calette were next to make their victory pass in the Youth Performance Pleasure class. I'm a Rookie is no rookie to the winners circle and Saturday night was no exception. Keith Alshie directed him to the blue in the Four Year Old Racking class.

Next was the Flat Shod Style Racking. It was won by Sunset's Pure Image and Jason Mann. Making their debut ride this year in the KWHA Ladies Auxiliary class was Suspicious Minds and Brandi Todd. After a flawless show, they packed out the blue ribbon. Dwight Dunn directed The Mexican to top honors in the Two Year Old Racking class. In the Juvenile Trail Pleasure Racking class F88s Midnite Sun and Stuart G. Mack caught Judge Willis' eye to win the class.

Next was the Style Racking class. The stylish team of Generator's Powerstroke and Wade Vaughn made the winning ride. Brent Grider directed Paper Backs to top honors in the Two Year Old Walking class for the Tommy Grider Family. Next, in the Amatuer Racking class, Aleisha Roberts directed the Performance Edge to top honors. The competitive Three Year Old Walking class was next. Downtown Buster Brown strutted around the ring to win the class with Brandye Mills aboard. Mike Philpot directed Touch of Fire to the blue in the 15.2 and under Racking class. In the Three Year and Four Old Amateur Walking class Silver Dollars and Kevin Ledford made a great show and proudly made their victory lap.

 In the Juvenile Walking Specialty calss, the awsome little team of Brandon Alshie and Red Man Walking made yet another blue ribbon ride. Curtain's You Go Girl and Crystal Rica made an outstanding show to capture the blue ribbon in the Amateur Show Pleasure Walking Class. Next, in the Open Pleasure Racking, Gen's Firewalker and Monica Pierce made the winning ride. In the much loved Speed Racking class, Blu By U and Sue Dunn sped by Judge Willis and caught his eye. The crowd sounded their approval loudly as Blu By U and Sue made their victory pass.

Showtime Generator and Mike Squires rode to the blue in the Amateur Walking Horse class. The Old Folk Bragging Rights class was next. Jim Roaden and Mr. Sunrise captured those bragging rights as they left the ring showing off that blue ribbon. The awsome team, Color of Cash and Jerry Goodman, made an outstanding show, as usual, to win the Performance Pleasure class.

The Walking Stake Championship was called to the ring, with several top entried answering the gate call. Jude Willis watched all the exhibitors closely as he put them through their gates, but when the horses went to the line up he made his decision. The card was maked with first place being Coin's LTD and Mr. Bobby Burton. Trainer, Bobby Burton was riding for Mr. and Mrs. Michael Hart. In the Racking Horse Stake, Motown Senator and Roger Byrd were judge Willis' final decision for first place. Show Manager, Ken Jackson and everyone from the Lake Laurel Horse Show thank all trainers and exhibitors for their participation and welcome everyone back next year.
