Ted Williams Hit The Splash In Blue Ribbon Style



by Stephanie Rose

COLUMBIA, Tenn. - The P.C. Splash Classic Horse Show was held on Friday, July 17, 2009, at 5 p.m. at the Maury County Park in Columbia, Tenn. The Gulf Coast Horse Show was the host of the event. It had the largest purse of the weekend with over $10,500 in prizes. Like the Gulf Coast Charity show, the P.C. Splash had ringside tables with tickets for dinner one could purchase before the show. Dinner included chicken, fish, vegetables, fruit, drinks and more for those at the tables to enjoy. The ring was set up in a beach theme that set a fun mood for the night. Jennifer Bingham was the judge for the 33-class event. The USDA was in attendance the entire night inspecting horses, which brought entries down.

Bud Dunn and Sons Stables had a good night with four blues. Ultra Copy’s Dark Shadow took Paulette Cheek to her first blue ribbon. Cheek was as excited as anyone on the grounds. The 2008 World Grand Champion team of Amy Nesius and FDR went to the winner’s circle in the Youth 17 & Under Specialty class. Olympic Power and Stephanie Gordon picked up their third blue of the year in the Amateur Pony, and Breakin Parole and Tim Smith were victorious in the Riders’ Cup Four-Year-Old Stallion class as they were the previous weekend at Cornersville.

Also taking home multiple blues was Charlie Green Stables with three, Chad Williams Stables with three, Winky Groover Stables with three, Rising Star Ranch with two and Mac Benham with dual blues.

World Grand Champion, Ted Williams and Mike Hilley carried out the floral horseshoe and the honors of being the Riders’ Cup Walking Horse Grand Champion of the P.C. Splash Classic.
