DICKSON, Tenn. - The 15th annual Dickson County Saddle and Bridle Club Horse Show was held on Thursday, July 24, 2008 at 6 p.m. at the Grab Creek Park in Dickson. It is always the first night of competition of the big weekend of Dickson, Lewisburg and Pulaski. There is something different about this horse show though. It not only brings out Middle Tennessee people but also West Tennessee, Mississippi and Kentucky as well because of its location.

The judge was Scotty Brooks of Bowling Green, Ky. The show chairman was Danny Fussell. The show had a delightful concession stand with homemade goodies along with air-conditioned restrooms to cool off in although the creek that runs along the grounds kept the temperature down and made for an enjoyable evening. The competition was stiff with 178 entries.

The stake class was small with three, but was very competitive. After a stake class win at the Gulf Coast Charity and then dual blues at Germantown, The Who and Jimmy McConnell picked another championship win for Molly Walters of Southlake, Texas. Worth A Buck and Todd Claborn were second for Beverly Sherman of Dallas, Texas. This team also carried the flag in the opening ceremonies. The Santini and Robert Stivers were third for the Bobby East family of Germantown, Tenn.
