London Rain Washes Away the Competition

by Julia Livingston

WAYNESVILLE, N.C. – Saturday, July 18, 2009, marked the date for the 57th annual Waynesville Lions Club Horse Show. As always, Show Manager Tom Alexander went all out for the event. Serving in the role of walking horse judge was Judy Martin from Shelbyville, Tenn., and joining her was the URHOEA racking judge, Jody Livingston from Longs, S.C.

In a small town where the bleachers were overflowing with fans that were mostly friends and neighbors, 250 entries made the gate call. This year the show was dedicated in memory of Charmin Hall whose life was cut short by breast cancer Nov. 10, 2008, at the age of 36. Hall was the chairman of the board of the United Racking Horse Owners’ & Exhibitors’ Association.

The powerful team of London Rain and Derek Bonner topped the competition in the Walking Horse Stake. The team captured the cheers from the fans, the blue ribbon, roses and trophy. Owners D.R. and Phyllis Mozeley were very proud of the winning team. London Rain is undefeated in open and amateur divisions for 2009. Reserve honors went to the talented team of Irresistible Cash and Paul Livingston.
