DANDRIDGE, Tenn. - The United Racking Horse Owners & Exhibitors Association had its first benefit horse show to raise money for its four-day Celebration Horse Show scheduled in September. The Chestnut Hill show grounds was selected for the event on Saturday, Aug. 8. The show manager was Sandy Epling.  

Epling would like to personally thank all the sponsors for their donations, the talented judges for giving their time, the Chestnut Hill Fire Department and all the trainers, owners, exhibitors and spectators that came out in 90-degree temperatures, for without them, it would not have been a success. The one-day event raised more than $2,000.

The all-pleasure show offered 36 classes in racking, walking and versatility, with a total of 170 entries making the gate call. Charlene Cox was the walking judge and Amber Basket was the URHOEA racking judge. At the end of the night, free ice cream was offered to all in appreciation.
