Los Lonely Boy Not Lonely On Victory Lane



by Julia Livingston

DANDRIDGE, Tenn. - The ETWHA Ladies Auxiliary Horse Show was held at the Chestnut Hill show grounds. These grounds have always pulled in exhibitors and spectators, not only from the community, but from other states as well. With temperatures in the 80s and blue skies above, you could not have asked for a more beautiful day for showing off the graceful gates of a Tennessee Walking Horse.

There were 242 entries that entered the show ring for this one-day event with 38 classes offered in walking and URHOEA racking divisions. These totals beat last year by 37 entries. The Auxiliary ladies, with a lot of help form show manager Tami Tripplett, have always taken great pride in honoring those that have passed on before us. In doing so, they have set aside classes in their memory: Jan Proffitt was remembered in the Juvenile Youth 12-17, Paul Henderlight was remembered in the 50 & Over, Ricky Derrick was remembered in the Grooms & Farriers and Terri Gwinn was remembered in the ETWHA Ladies Auxiliary class. All classes were rewarded with floral blankets sponsored by Jerry Highsmith Stables, and trophies were handmade and sponsored by Vickie Hughes. At intermission, two scholarships were presented for $500 to Daysie Rich and Summer Brooks. Donald Todd traveled from Richmond, Ky., to serve as the walking judge.

A total of six talented entries entered the gate of the Walking Horse Stake Championship. Wayne Conley directed Los Lonely Boy to the winner’s circle, collecting the blue ribbon, trophy and the floral blanket for proud owners Al and Brenda Morgan. A Big Time Pusher with Jerry Highsmith in the irons won the reserve honors for owner Ray Hughes.
