Liberty Lions Club Has Biggest Show Yet With 248 Entries

by Stephanie Rose

SHELBYVILLE, Tenn. - The Liberty Lions Club had a great show on Friday, June 20, 2008. They had big classes and many competitive entries for Jeff Willis of Lewisburg, Tenn., to judge with 34 divisions in which to compete. Paul Gambill did an excellent job as show manager.

The Ferguson Farms Riders’ Cup Championship Stake class was full of wonderful horses. Don Diego and Joe Cotten took home top honors in the good class for owners Keith and Lorraine Rosbury. General’s Show Stopper and Jeff Green were reserve in the class for Brad Murrath. Will E Walk and Knox Blackburn rounded out the top three for Harry and Trudy York.

One of the most talked about classes was the Molly Walters’ Family Riders’ Cup Four-Year-Old class. The new team of Joel Weaver and World Grand Champion The Coach finally made their Middle Tennessee debut and won the blue for Holland, Kilgore and Barnes. They won at the Neshoba County Classic in Mississippi a few weeks ago. Gold Label Lady and Herbert Derickson were reserve for Brenda Carlon.

Ashley Diamond Pollack came in for the week from California and racked up three blues at Liberty and two blues the next night at the Eagleville Lions Club. What a great weekend! At Liberty, Pollack won on Adrenaline in the Youth 12-17 division, Steve Nash in the Youth Pony class and Gen’s Major Coin in the Amateur Park Pleasure. In Eagleville, she won again on Adrenaline in the Youth 12-17 Specialty and Gen’s Major Coin in the Open Park Pleasure. Rising Star Ranch trains these champions.
