The Tennessee Reining Horse Association brought reiners to Memphis, the birthplace of rock’n’ roll music, for the last show of the 2021 season, October 21-24 at the Show Place Arena. Judges were Brian Welman, Ed Bricker, and Pete McAlister, with NRHA Rep Sam Schaffhauser and Show Manager Julia Reece.
New TNRHA President Ronnie Fox was pleased with the turnout. “We filled 260 stalls and have about 180 entries,” he said. Fox is a friendly, easy talking fellow whose voice reminded me of Del McCoury. Fox said they had a lot of folks come from Texas and Arkansas to this show. “It’s a good central location and it’s a great facility,” he said.
Classes started on Thursday with Novice Horse, NRHA Green, and Para Reining. Highlights of Friday’s classes were the Akin Veterinary Services No Pro 7 &Up Maturity with $1500 added money and the $500 added THRHA Rookie Shoot-Out sponsored by Kentucky Lake Trailer Sales. They also had the Futurity for 3-year-olds on Friday night, followed by a barbeque dinner with music from a local band.
