Tennessee Paint Horse Club Spooktacular Finale
The Tennessee Paint Horse Club (TPHC) finished their 2018 show season with the TPHC Spooktacular Finale on October 27, 2018 in Lebanon, Tenn. at the James E. Ward Ag Center. This was their sixth show of the season, with locations varying from Murfreesboro to Cleveland to Lebanon, Tenn. Horses at this two-judge show were evaluated by Cindy Girardier (Missouri) and Stephanie McConnell (Indiana).On Friday night prior to the show, the club held its annual Chili Cook-off and had some Halloween fun with costumes and candy. Some costumes were seen throughout the day on Saturday and more made an appearance in the costume class as the last class of the day.
Several season-long activities ended at the show. The TjPHC had been selling tickets for a Custom Cowhide saddle stand at each show throughout the year, and at the last break, the winner’s name was drawn; Howard Norman get to take home the beautiful stand. Thanks to the efforts of some members collecting their Pinnacle horse feel labels throughout the year, this collection and the partnership with Tennessee Farmers Co-Op, the club will have $286 to go towards awards for next year.
The show had good numbers in several divisions. The youth division was once again well represented, and the competition and camaraderie among the exhibitors was good.
Plans are already in place for the 2019 show season. The first show of the year will be the March 9 -10 at Miller Coliseum in Murfreesboro. This will be a four-judge combined show and will include a consignment sale, open to the public, with show apparel, tack and more.
