The Legacy of the East Tennessee Ladies Auxiliary Continues



by Julia Livingston

NEWPORT, Tenn. - The third annual ETWHA Ladies Auxiliary Horse Show was held at the Cock County Fairgrounds, Aug. 2, 2008. Even with an unexpected rainstorm that poured three inches of rain, including lightening and thunder on and off for two hours, the show was a splashing success.

Show Manager Tami Tripplett organized the event with the finest of style. Every class winner was rewarded with a blue ribbon, a trophy that was sponsored by Vickie Hughes and a floral blanket that was sponsored by Cindy Hughes. Reserve honors were rewarded with a ribbon and a halter sponsored by Indian Ridge Stables.  

There were 38 classes offered counting A and B divisions, with a total of 205 horses showing. Carl Johnson traveled from Bell Buckle, Tenn., to judge the walking classes.

The Ladies Auxiliary offered an incentive to the trainer who brought the most entries with a $200 prize. The winner of this award was Steve Woody Stables, with a total of 18. The Ladies Auxiliary also made a special presentation of $500 to Paul and Julia Livingston to help in the recovery of their barn after a fire destroyed it. The URHOEA also had a hay drive in which they were able to get 22 bales of hay to help replace those that were lost in the fire.

The Walking Horse Stake class had a total of three entries. Wayne Conley directed Legacy Of Ritz to the blue ribbon, trophy, floral blanket and all the cheers of the fans, for the proud owners CJ and Liz Hicks of Logan, W.Va.
