Young Guns Colt Preview Update



Please remember the Young Guns Colt Preview this Friday Feb. 8th at 6 PM in the Calsonic Arena. All 2 and 3 year olds sired by any stallion are welcome. Young horses in both the Performance and Pleasure classification are encouraged to enter. There will be a $20 entry fee per colt exhibited. We have had some donations for the cost of the preview so it is with great pleasure to announce ALL ENTRY FEES will go to the Row McLaughlin Support Fund.



Four-year-old Row McLaughlin is the son of Jenny and Sam McLaughlin of Shelbyville, Tenn. Row was diagnosed with chronic kidney disease (CKD) in April of 2012, due to his kidneys not developing properly from birth. Because of this condition, he is now in kidney failure. Row is facing a kidney transplant in the near future.

An account has been set up in Row McLaughlin’s name at US Bank. Please make all checks payable to Row McLaughlin. This account is set up as a donation account and will be treated as such with the IRS, meaning all funds received are treated as a donation/charity.

The Young Guns Colt Preview is affiliated with the SHOW HIO. All entries will be inspected. Please prepare and exhibit as you would at any Horse Show. We will allow side blinkers for these young horses but all other equipment used will follow the same guidelines as acceptable in the show ring. For information about the preview contact  David Williams  931-639-1081.

There will be a Silent Auction set up including many great items and stud fees to the leading stallions set up with the proceeds going to the Celebration Scholarship Fund.

To make donations, submit items to the auction or for any other information contact Julie Lambert at 931-212-6383. We would like to encourage any stallion owner to donate a fee to this auction.

We are expecting a big crowd, concessions will be available. This is a great time to socialize with friends and enjoy watching some great young horses in the comfort of the Calsonic.
