Third Annual Cumberland County Open Walking Horse Show Boasts 228 Contenders!



by Linda Fox

CROSSVILLE, Tenn. - It’s hard to fathom that a show in existence for only three years could become such an overwhelming success in so short a time. Show Manager Robbie Casteel and the Cumberland County 4-H Horsemen Club, along with help from family and friends, seem to have the formula for horse show success down pat.  Approximately 228 contenders from several states traveled to the Cumberland County Community Complex in Crossville, Tenn., to compete in their respective divisions. Judge Tracy Boyd traveled from Shelbyville, Tenn., to mark the cards.

Nine talented entries made the gate call for the Robert Bottoms Memorial Walking Horse Stake class. After a third running walk was called, it was trainer Scott Beaty and his grey stallion, America On Line, who were called to the winner’s circle. This team was fresh off their Pikeville Stake win the previous weekend. Darrell Frazier of Jamestown, Tenn., lays claim to this contender. Jason Day and Missed The Boat received the reserve nod for Maddie Jones of Little Elm, Texas, and Jorgé and Kevin Gower rounded out the third position for Field of Dreams Stables, Lewisburg, Tenn.
