Walking for Cancer Show Information



The Walking for Cancer Horse Show will be held on Saturday, May 19, 2012 at the Bedford County Ag Center. The show begins at 5:00 PM and admission is $5.00 with children under 6 being admitted free.

There will be fun for everyone; good food, merchandise vendors and the greatest breed of horse, the beautiful Tennessee Walking Horse.  Music for the show and for entertainment will be
provided by noted organist Chase Williams.

An added feature at the show this year will be three special Pink Ribbon Classes.  Class 7, Survivors Amateur Open Specialty will be for riders who are cancer survivors; Class 9, Pleasure Amateur Open Specialty; and Class 29 Performance Amateur Open Specialty, will be amateurs riding in honor or in memory of a cancer victim.

The Walking for Cancer Horse Show is the major source of funds for the Bedford Cancer Foundation, a 501(c)(3) corporation that has provided more than $29,000 in assistance to cancer patients in Bedford County over the last two years.

We are working hard to put on a great show for the industry, reports President Joni Jenne’ and we invite the community to come out to enjoy the show and help us raise funds to assist Bedford County residents. We would also welcome assistance if anyone would like to sponsor a class, ribbons or a trophy.
