Editorial by Sara Engel Coverage by K.C. Hensley, Maggi Painter, Linda Scrivner and Lynn Shost

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - The 27th annual International Grand Championship Performance Walking Horse Show experienced not only a high quality show, but a high quantity show. Once again the show was held at the Tennessee Miller Coliseum, a fabulous facility located in Murfreesboro, Tenn. This great three-day show, which ran from Sept. 29th - Oct. 1st, had 506 entries, which was down slightly from 2004. The show was still brought in many outstanding horses, riders and excited fans. Many of these great horses were reigning world champions and world grand champions. Not only was there an abundance of classes that included more than 15 horses, but the crowd was also treated to five world grand champion exhibitions. Needless to say, this show was packed with fun and excitement from beginning to end.

“The 2005 International Grand Championship Performance Walking Horse Show was very successful,” said Mark Taylor. “Everyone seemed to enjoy The Miller Club Room again this year. The food was excellent and Donna Beaty is to be commended for her hard work organizing and making the Club Room so successful. We hope everyone had a great time at both International Grand Championship shows. A combined total of entires for both the pleasure show and the performance show was 2408.”

To start off the each evening’s performance, a leading horse and rider in the industry carried out the flag to present our nation’s colors. Thursday evening brought current Three-Year-Old Amateur World Grand Champion Shock Jock and Becky Coleman, Friday night Mickey McCormick directed Four-Year-Old Amateur World Grand Champion JFK’s Monopoly around the track with the flag waving, and on Saturday evening, the honor was given to 2004 and 2005 Elite World Grand Champion John FK’s Pusher and Dick Peebles.

Five fantasic world grand champions were also on hand to exhibit to the crowd’s delight. This included Gen On The Run, Final Keeper, Prism Sky, Jose’s Intimidator and World Grand Champion Main Power.

The three judges who had their hands full for the 2005 rendition were Tommy Howell of Athens, Tenn., Jane Martin of Shelbyville, Tenn., and Mike McCormick of Shelbyville, Tenn.

This year’s stake competition brought nine great entries though the gate to vie for the coveted tricolor ribbon and beautiful floral horseshoe. And lets not forget the impressive title of International Grand Champion.

As always, Mark Farrar Jr., did a superb job of announcing the contenders as they entered the ring one-by-one to the crowd’s enjoyment. These entries included Spirit’s Midnight Rider and Ramsey Bullington, NYPD and Tim Gray, Wasted Wages and Mickey McCormick, Dragonfly and Jimmy McConnell, Pusher’s Veiled Threat and Joe Martin, Gold Picture and John Allan Callaway, King Of The Jungle and Bill Bobo, The Pusher’s Renaissance and Knox Blackburn, and Santini and Jackie McConnell.

Claiming the top honor with a unanimous decision from the judging panel was the always crowd-pleasing team of NYPD and Tim Gray for the Rick Compton family of Tazewell, Va. This team had a previous 2005 stake win at the Columbia Spring Jubilee which also yielded a unanimous tie. This exciting stallion also claimed the 2003 Three-Year-Old World Championship, along with the Three-Year-Old World Grand Championship and the 2004 Four-Year-Old Stallion World Championship and the Four-Year-Old World Grand Championship titles.

Reserve in this competitive class was the 2004 International Reserve Grand Champions Dragonfly and Jimmy McConnell for Bob and Mary Medina of Skillman, N.J. Last year the team stepped up from the four-year-old ranks and competed in the stake class. Coming back strong this entire season, this pair proved themselves once again. Dragonfly and Jimmy have captured several other blues this season in stake competition including the Gulf Coast Charity Horse Show, Germantown Charity Horse Show and the Magnolia Classic Horse Show. As a result of this reserve honor, Dragonfly gained two positions in the WHR High Point race and an amazing three spots in the WHTA Riders’ Cup runnings.

The blue ribbon tally was won by David Landrum Stables with five victories, followed closely behind by Allan Callaway Stables and Whitter Stables with four wins apiece. Formac Stables, Ramsey Bullington Stables, Finish Line Farms and Knox Blackburn Stables each earned a trio of blue ribbon victory passes. Rising Star Ranch, Robby Black Stables, Southern Comfort Stables and Ronnie Spears Stables each returned home with dual blues. The remaining single blues were won by Webb Stables, Kurt Kovalick Stables, Leigh Bennett Stables, Brock Tillman Stables, Bobo Farms, Steve Aymett Stables, Backward S Ranch, Derickson Training Facility, Shamrock Farms, Mickey McCormick Stables and Winky Groover Stables.
