The Strong Will Prevail



by Ashlea Wheelon

LEWISBURG, Tenn. - On Saturday, July 25, 2008, Marshall County held its 32nd annual horse show in Lewisburg Tenn. As always this was a weekend where Celebration is fast approaching, the judges have been selected and everyone is riding at their best. Joe Fleming of Shelbyville, Tenn., called the 32-class horse show. It was a strong finish for Joel Weaver and A Strong Dollar who claimed the Walking Horse Stake class for proud owners Bob and Curtice McCloy. A Strong Dollar is by Generator’s Silver Dollar and both stand at Rising Star Ranch Breeding Facility.

It was a big night for the Pollack family with four blue ribbons. Royal Sparkling Gen won two of the four; once with Patti Pollack in the Adult County Pleasure and then again with Tyler Diamond Pollack in Youth Country Pleasure. These teams also won blues at Dickson Saddle Club and the Red Carpet Show Of The South, totaling four blues in one weekend!

Multiple blues were won by Pollack’s Silver Spur Ranch, Rising Star Ranch, Justin Jenné Stables, Hal Newman Stables, Mickey McCormick Stables, Bruce Hankins Stables, David Landrum Stables and Ronnie Spears Stables.
