FAYETTEVILLE, Tenn. – The 28th annual Fayetteville Blue Ribbon Horse Show rescheduled its show time to July 9, 2009. In years past, the show has been the opening act the first weekend in August. Proceeds from the show are invested in the youth of the Lincoln County 4-H clubs.

Ronnie Spears of Tullahoma, Tenn., marked the cards for the 30-class event, while Chip Walters kept things moving with the microphone. Jack Greene served as the show’s official photographer and Brian Perry delighted the crowd with the sounds of the organ.

It was Mickey McCormick Stables and the Pollack’s Silver Spur Ranch who topped the blue ribbon tally with a total of three wins each. Much to the surprise of Bailey McCormick and Socks On A Rooster, this talented team was named the Youth 11 & Under Champions for Bailey and Morgan McCormick. Hydrostatic and Ann Bailey made a trip down victory lane in the Amateur Specialty class. Mickey McCormick was welcomed into the winner’s circle aboard Blue Ray in the Three-Year-Old Stallion class for McJunkin Farms.

Patti Pollack’s fans greeted her three times with the spoils of victory. First there was Willie Do who walked to the win in the Open Two-Year-Old Amateur class. Then Adrenaline got everyone pumped up in the Amateur Lady Riders on Mares & Geldings class. Finally, He’s Extra Ordinary thrilled the crowd and Judge Spears in the Amateur Riders 15.2 & Under Specialty class.

Brandon Stout closed out the show aboard A Sensational Dumas in the Walking Horse Grand Championship. Stout captured his first stake victory with the winning entry for Don and Lucky Collins.
