WTHJA Memphis in May
[View More Photos]
West Tennessee Hunter Jumper Association was back at the “Charity Arena” in Germantown, Tenn. for their Memphis in May series, May 2-5 and May 9-12, 2019. The weather was somewhat better than at the April shows, but, once again, rain showed up for Saturday. Friday’s weather was only a slight gentle drizzle, and Sunday of both shows was a gorgeous sunny day!
Show manager Barney Mallace said, “The Pony Classic with lots of entries was fantastic and the WTHJA Derby was fun, too. The May shows were about twice as big as April shows.” Mallace brought some of his hand-made pottery for sale and, all in all, sold about 30 pieces at the spring shows.
Folks from the Germantown Charity Horse Show committee treated show participants to wine and cheese hospitality on Friday afternoon of the Memphis in May I show.
