Spring Fun Show Selects Judges



The 42nd Annual Spring Fun Show has selected Jamie Bradshaw, Ray Gilmer and Andy Simpson as judges for the three-day show to be held in Calsonic Arena in Shelbyville, Tenn. May 24-26, 2012.  Bradshaw is from Union Grove, AL and most recently judged last year’s Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration along with judging the world championship show in 2006 and 2009.  Gilmer, who is from Toone, Tenn. has previously judged The Celebration in 1991 and 2002.  Simpson, from Indian Mound, Tenn. will be making his debut performance at a Celebration sanctioned show.

“I am excited to work with both Ray Gilmer and Andy Simpson at the Fun Show.  I have not worked with either of these men during my tenure at the Celebration.  It is great to have the experience of Mr. Gilmer along with Mr. Simpson being a newcomer to our center ring.  I personally welcome Jamie Bradshaw back to one of our showcase events.  This judging panel will be an excellent combination of knowledge and experience,” said Dr. Doyle Meadows, Chief Executive Officer of the Celebration.

The 42nd Annual Spring Fun Show will kick off Memorial Day weekend as has been the tradition in the Walking Horse calendar historically.  For reserved and box seats call The Celebration at 931-684-5915 and click here to see the tentative class sheet for this year’s show.
