It Was Mister Pushbutton and Scott Beaty Pushing Their Way To The Top



by Linda Fox

DUNLAP, Tenn. - The O.K. Hege Memorial Horse Show was held in Dunlap, Tenn., at the Sequatchie County Park, nestled in the beautiful East Tennessee mountains. The Dunlap Lions Club sponsored the 26-class venue, held on Saturday, June 27, 2009.

Mike Sims took on the duties of evaluating the 155 entries. Charlie Glenn was the ringmaster and Brian Perry supplied the musical accompaniment. Show Chairman Wayne Reynolds pulled double duty as he also served as master of ceremonies.

 Spectators filled the grandstand and lawn chairs were spread around the ring ends. A cool breeze made for a very pleasant evening, and the quality of horses and riders was exceptional in the large classes.

Seven talented teams entered the ring to vie for the Riders’ Cup Walking Horse Stake honors. After the work, it was Scott Beaty and Mister Pushbutton who were called to the winner’s circle. Mister Pushbutton is owned by the Fred Allred family of Jamestown, Tenn. Texas Joe Black and Justin Harris picked up the reserve honors for Steve and Kathy Zeis and Pusher’s Astro, and Joe Cotten filled out the third place slot for Wendell and Pat Blankenship.
