A Special Night In Lewisburg



by Stephanie Rose

LEWISBURG, Tenn. - A thrilling night of competitive horses and riders entered the gate during the 33rd annual Marshall County Horseman’s Association Horse Show. Jamie Hankins of Paris, Ky., marked the cards for the 33 classes of the evening. A huge crowd of spectators came out to enjoy the show and see the horses they had hoped to see all year.

Some horses showed for the first time of the season and it was exciting to watch them perform. Palm Beach Ritz and Sandra Johnson made a winning ride in the Amateur 50 & Over class. Bella Sera At The Ritz and Ashley Joseph picked up their first blue of the year in their first show in the Amateur Ladies Specialty class. Lindsay Hess directed Hurricane Rain to their first winning ride of the year.

Many trainers and owners came from out of town to make it to the Marshall County show. Jimmy McConnell of Formac Stables won five blues including the Riders’ Cup Walking Horse Stake with Busting Special for new owners the Molly Walters family of South Lake, Texas. Busting Special is expected to start in a new division with Walters’ daughter, Taylor. Private Charter and Knox Blackburn were reserve in the stake for Eva Eddleman, and Texas Joe Black and Justin Harris rounded out the top three.
