McConnell Up For Parole In Dickson

by Linda Scrivner

DICKSON, Tenn. – The 16th annual Dickson County Saddle and Bridle Club Horse Show was held on Thursday, July 23, 2009, at 6 p.m. at the Grab Creek Park in Dickson. It is always the first night of competition for a big weekend with horse shows at Dickson, Lewisburg and Pulaski. This horse show is different than most because of its location. It brings out exhibitors and spectators from Middle Tennessee, West Tennessee, Mississippi and Kentucky.

Spirits were dampened and many prayers said for one of the exhibitors. Beverly Sherman suffered from an apparent heart attack while making her victory pass with One Cool Lady in the Two-Year-Old Amateur Mare & Gelding class. Several worked with Sherman, including Dr. Cliff Garrard and Dickson County EMTs, until the ambulance arrived. After the ambulance had taken Sherman, a prayer was said for her before the show resumed. She was stabilized at the local hospital and then life-flighted to Vanderbilt Hospital in Nashville, Tenn. Three stints were placed in her heart and she is recovering at Vanderbilt.

The show had competitive competition all the way through and the crowd anticipated the stallion and gelding class. After two previous stake wins this season, Up For Parole and Jimmy McConnell picked up another blue ribbon for Robert and Janelle Jones of Memphis, Tenn. Ritz Custom Made and Joe Cotten were second for Annabelle Smith of Manchester, Ky.
