USDA Attends KWHA Juvenile Auxiliary Show

by Renee Isaacs

LANCASTER, Ky. – The Kentucky Walking Horse Association Juvenile Auxiliary held its annual horse show on Sunday, May 24, 2009. The juveniles count on the show as a major fundraiser to buy sweatshirts and take group trips. This year, the auxiliary was poised for another successful show, however, the USDA attended the show and many exhibitors decided not to show. Several classes had no entries and overall, the show was very light and thus not the fundraiser the youth expected.
Hankins Stables claimed four blues and a reserve during the event. Ashley Shelton carried the roses in the Juvenile Trail Pleasure class aboard Lucky Grand and Justin Isaacs was second in the class with Gin’s Wise Guy. Joe Lester won two classes in the plantation pleasure division.
The winner of the full-page black and white ad, which was donated by The Walking Horse Report, was Logan Hankins. Auxiliary members sold tickets for a 21-inch deep seat saddle prior to the show to raise money. Nancy Short of Richmond, Ky., was the winner of the saddle.

The Juvenile Auxiliary would like to thank everyone who supported the show and ask for continued support next year.
