Jamestown Rotary Club’s 53rd Annual Horse Show Saturday, July 20th

The 53rd Annual Fentress County Horse Show, sponsored by the Jamestown Rotary Club, will be held Saturday, July 20, 2013, beginning at 5:00 p.m. (CDST) at the Fentress Co. Fairgrounds in Jamestown.
The annual event is traditionally one of the top shows in Middle Tennessee, and always draws a large number of quality horses.  This year should be no exception, with 28 classes from the stick horse class for the youngsters to the Walking and Racking Stake Classes.  There will also be numerous other classes featuring walking, racking and pleasure horses and this year includes the addition of several western and pleasure classes.

Judge for this year’s show will be Mark West, with Todd Burnett serving as Master of Ceremonies, Rodney Jones as Ringmaster, Wayne Nabors as Organist, and Dr. Jack Upchurch as Veterinarian.
