MOAB and Steve Hankins Splashed Their Way to Championship Honors

by Janet Bullis

DOBSON, N.C. - The 11th annual Surry County Foothills Classic Horse Show was held on June 13 at Fisher River Park in Dobson, N.C. Madison Holloway presented the colors aboard her horse, The Razz Man. The show started out with perfect weather, however, Mother Nature provided a rainy intermission during the eighth class, holding the show up for two hours. The show was able to go on but several horses were scratched due to the wet conditions.

Judge David Fingers judged the 36 classes that had a total of 110 entries. The show management would like to thank all the trainers and exhibitors who were able to continue on and show. The proceeds from this show go to support the Surry County Children’s Home.

Steve Hankins Stables had the most blues for the night with seven wins. Hankins and MOAB rode to the winner’s circle in the Open Stake for proud owner Della Compton. Family members presented the Lana Finney Challenge trophy in memory of Lana Finney. Derek Monahan and Nightfall At The Ritz were reserve champions for owner Rom Folger. Ronald Mosley and Gen’s Orange Lady carried out the yellow ribbon.
