Victory Colors Goes All the Way at Halfway

by Jennifer Maack-Condren

HALFWAY, Mo. - Halfway Missouri was the host for the annual Saddle Club Horse Show on July 3, 2009. Normally just a quiet spot in the road, the area came to life for this annual event. Those in attendance were welcomed by announcer and Show Chairman Morris Westfall, who has been instrumental in the reorganization of the club and the gaited horse show. The club mainly focuses on “play days” but has been eager to learn the challenges and successes of hosting a gaited show. Steve Leonard of Huntington, Ark., served as the walking horse judge.

Jim Huffman directed the bay-roan stallion Victory Colors to the winner’s circle in the Open Walking Horse class for Jim and Donna Huffman. Brad Huffman and Coin’s Noelle received the reserve honors for Rick and Susie Graham. Jim Huffman Stables earned a total of five blues for its efforts. 4-J Land and Cattle Co. took four blues home to Waynesville, Mo. The Nichols family and Brad Huffman Stables earned two blues a piece. Individual wins went to Don Bills Stables and Tom Burton Stables.

It was certainly nice to see a local community pull together and have a successful one-night show in a time when so many shows are falling by the wayside. The members of the Halfway Saddle Club were very appreciative of all who came to support their show.
