Private Charter Lands At Bedford FFA

by Stephanie Rose

SHELBYVILLE, Tenn.—Over 200 entries showed up for the Bedford FFA Horse Show on June 27, 2008. Gary Leverette was the show manager. The show started promptly at 6 p.m. and was held at the Bedford Country Agriculture Center. Layne Leverette of Shelbyville, Tenn., judged his first show that included 27 classes.

One of the most exciting classes of the evening was the Amateur Specialty Mares & Geldings division. It had 19 competitive entries. Judge Leverette decided to work the class and pulled eight on the grass to work further. Market Watch and Cindy Sullivan were the ones to watch in the division. They went to the winner’s circle for the first time in 2008 for Rick and Cindy Sullivan of Shelbyville, Tenn. Dr. Jim Baum and High Jacked made an excellent show to receive the red streamer for Lisa Baum.

Many spectators stayed to the end of the show to wait for a contender they have not seen all year. Private Charter and Knox Blackburn were worth waiting for as they entered the ring and made a remarkable show for the Walden family of Chattanooga, Tenn. The Dance Hall Doctor and Joel Weaver also looked great and came in second for the Andrew Waites family of Hattiesburg, Miss.
