WINCHESTER, Tenn. – On Saturday, Nov. 25, 2009, the second annual Franklin County Walking Horse Show was held in the indoor Southern Middle Tennessee Pavilion. This show was a huge success with 263 entries. Tommy Howell of Shelbyville, Tenn., judged the 34-class event.   

Wired And Walking and Alan Price walked to the winner’s circle when they were announced the Walking Stake Champions of Winchester. Reserve in the class was the team of Goodbye Joe and Allan Callaway for Judy Leek. Jose’s All Pro and Bill Bobo for Daniel Rowsick rounded out the top three in the stake.

Kristie Bell, show chairman, said, “We were impressed with the support we received from the trainers, owners and exhibitors. We want to thank everyone who participated and SHOW HIO for all its support in making the show a success. We appreciate SHOW giving us the opportunity to use the old or the new fee structure. We look forward to your continued support for our 2010 show.”

The blue ribbon tally winner was Bobby Hugh and Jeff Laughlin of Rising Star Ranch with five blues. Dickie Scrivner Stables and Scott Beaty Stables each returned home with three blues. Dual blues went to Allan Callaway Stables, Chad Way Stables, Jackie Byrom Stables, Riverbend Stables, Southern Comfort Facility and Todd Claborn of Triple C Stables.
