MOREHEAD, Ky. - The Morehead State University held its annual spring show in Morehead, Ky., on April 3 and 4, 2009. Paul Livingston of East Tennessee judged the two-day event. Many trainers, owners and exhibitors attended the first show of the year in Kentucky with approximately 250 horses making the gate calls.

Two people celebrated birthdays at the show. Emilee Smith of Olive Hill, Ky., turned 14 years old on Saturday and invited everyone over to her trailer for birthday cake. Denise Calhoun of Berea, Ky., passed out cupcakes to share on her birthday prior to winning the Ladies Amateur class with Label’s Lucky Charm.

Mike Oney and Johnny Orlando of Sweet Revenge Stables won the Walking Stake Championship. This performance duo has now claimed the MSU Spring Show title three years in a row. Linda Patton, owner of the talented horse, was very proud of the team.

The equestrian team at Morehead State University would like to thank everyone who supported the show and ask that you leave your calendar open for the fall show and next year for the spring show as well.
