White Oak Classic draws good turnout
By SUE WATSON
The Dudley R. Moore Jr. Memorial White Oak Classic Walking and Racking Horse Show had a good night Saturday, May 20, with great attendance, good food, outstanding walking and racking, and great weather.
Show manager Terry Rodgers attributed the turnout to good weather. This is the second year the White Oak Classic Walking and Racking Horse Show has been held under the roof at Thomas Arena in Holly Springs.
“It was one of the best shows we’ve had because of good weather, good turnout and a new group of spectators,” Rodgers said. “Three or four grand champions from the Shelbyville, Tenn., classic participated in the show, some of the judges were saying.”
Sarah Sawyer, executive director of the Byhalia Area Chamber of Commerce, agreed.
“Being our 15th show, it continues to have the reputation of being one of the best shows in the region,” she said. “We were proud of the turnout of spectators and riders this year. It is a tremendous amount of work, but the volunteers always pull through and we appreciate them so much.”
The fund-raiser benefits the Byhalia Chamber, Marshall County Habitat for Humanity, Byhalia Sports Association, a church youth group and the Byhalia Cub Scouts.
Sawyer thanked the Byhalia Lions Club for donating their time to help with parking and admissions.
