Terri Mosley and Classic Rebel are Winners at Lenoir



By Janet G. Bullis

The 55th annual Lenoir Optimist Club Horse Show was held August 9, 2003, at the Optimist Park in Lenoir, N.C. This long running show honors more than 55 years of direct involvement in activities benefiting the youth of Lenoir and Caldwell County. Mother Nature has not been very good to outdoor shows in North Carolina this year. However, despite the rain, the show started on time. Luckily the rains did let up for the largest part of the show, but returned again toward the end. B.M. Bullis of Millers Creek, N.C., judged the 164 entries in the walking classes.

The Walking Horse Stake had six entries with Classic Rebel and Terri Mosley winning the class for Holcomb and Mosley. This classically stylish horse had already won the Youth 12-17 class with Bryce Holcomb in the irons. Coming in reserve in the stake was David Polk and Cash’s Miss Star for owner Carolyn Evans. The yellow ribbon went to Lonesome Coin and Shawn Abee for J.C. Knight.

The Three-Year-Old class had ten strong entries with Cash By The Handful and Lisa Howard coming out on top. Kevin Varner trained this duo. The red banner went to Generating Cash Money and Buddy Stasney for the Ward Berry family.

The Four-Year-Old Amateur class was won by Sweepstakes Beam and Kelly Duschel from Grandy Tuck Stables. The reserve ribbon went to Amy Abee and Extra Special Touch for Cooke and Abee.
