Marvin North Splashed Into Nolensville And Took Top Honors

by Stephanie Rose

NOLENSVILLE, Tenn.—The 23rd annual Nolensville Lions Club Horse Show was held on Aug. 9, 2008, at 6 p.m. The show was held in Nolensville, Tenn., at the park. In years past, they have had it in conjunction with the Williamson County Fair in Franklin. It felt good to be back at the old show grounds because it truly felt like a Saturday night one-night horse show again. Judy Martin judged the 31 classes that were on the sheet for the evening. The evening showcased fine concessions, with every tent having different foods of a variety of ethnicity.

Several trainers had multiple blue ribbon rides. Bobby Hugh had the most blues with four. I’m A Lady In Command, Cruisin The Sky, My Blackeyed Susan and Los Lonely Boy were his winners. Joe Martin Stables was a close second with three blues, which were Perfection Of Jazz, Sky Search and Pusher’s Man Of Jazz. David Landrum Stables had dual blues with I’m Splashed and San Juan. Nathan Mills and Hoyte Eakes carried home two blues for She’s Full Of Fire and Major General’s Magic Miss.

The Riders’ Cup Walking Horse Stake class was the finale of the evening with four strong entries. Marvin North came out on top with I’m Splashed for Hillview Promotions and Lindsey Landrum. Pushover’s Powerstroke and Justin Harris were reserve for Greer and McGee. Baby Doll’s Beaming Star and John Paul Jones carried home the yellow ribbon for Denise Reding while Ozone Layer and Jeff Willis were fourth for Judy Reece.
