The Licking FFA Horse Show held Saturday night August 26th at the Rodeo Grounds was a great success. The weather was perfect, the dirt in the arena freshly turned, and riders and horses of all ages and breeds turned out to participate.

FFA officers and the horse show committee have worked hard since May to coordinate the community wide show. This year had over 50 entries, considerably more than last year’s event. The Licking FFA chapter helped at the gates, the cook shack, and the silent auction and also ran the computers for the show, a great learning experience for everyone.

24 classes were offered, a mix of horsemanship, pleasure classes, barrel racing and pole bending, and traditional fun show classes including the egg and spoon race and mailbox race. All the classes had participants with the exception of one event: open fast gaited.

During the opening ceremonies, the audience stood for the Pledge of Allegiance. Autumn Bailey had the honor of carrying the American Flag on her horse during the singing of the Star Spangled Banner by Lancer Blair of Salem, who also served as announcer. Judging the event was David Sutton.

Funds raised from the horse show are used to support FFA activities throughout the year. We would like to say thank you to everyone who came out to help and support our Chapter, and would love to see you again next year!
