The Secret Was Out At Monroe

by Stephanie Rose

MONROE, Ga. - The 45th annual Walton County Horse Show was held at the fairgrounds on Church Street in Monroe, Ga. It was sponsored by the Youth of the First United Methodist Church of Monroe and was affiliated with SHOW and the Georgia Walking Horse Exhibitors’ Association. Show manager was the Youth Pastor at First United Methodist, Tim Hildebrandt. Mike Carter of Kingsport, Tenn., marked the cards for the evening in the 35 classes. The show started at 4 p.m., and at approximately 6 p.m. a dinner break was held along with a meeting of the Georgia Ladies Auxiliary. The show ran smoothly and went well even though there was a couple of rain showers throughout the night.

Throughout the night there was a buzz that a multi-world champion mare would show in the J.C. Brogdon Memorial Walking Horse Championship. The buzz was right and the secret was out for the year. A Victoria Secret and Gary Edwards made a great debut show for owners Chester and Lynda Stokes. A Victoria Secret won five blues in 2008 including a world championship. Blues Que and Bill Cantrell were reserve in the good class for Larry Few. Few also won the Novice Amateur Specialty class aboard Pusher’s Macho Delight earlier in the evening. Brian Watson and Out Of Lined rounded out the top three for Lindy Rogers.
