Volunteer Ranch Horse Show
The Volunteer Ranch Horse Association (VolRHA) has moved all their shows to the Show Place Arena in Memphis, Tenn. this year, beginning with the March Madness show, March 12-13, 2022. Tammy Bledsoe, VolRHA secretary/treasurer, thanked “all of those who braved the cold to come out. We managed to survive a snow storm and time change all in the same weekend to have an amazing horse show. The number of runs we had go through the cattle classes were awesome, and we are thankful for all who braved the outdoor pens with the cold.”
As predicted, late Friday afternoon and into Saturday morning, a winter storm blew down from the north into the mid-south with strong winds bringing several inches of snow and temperatures in the 20s. The area snowfall ranged from 3 to 6 inches or more. It was sunny on Saturday, but still quite cold with the high only in the mid-30s and back down to the 20s Saturday night. To counter the cold, Jonathan Fortenberryand American National Insurance Company provided hot coffee at the show over the weekend. Jonathan is a VolRHA member and American National is a season sponsor of VolRHA, WTQHA, Midsouth QHA, and TNRHA. On Sunday morning, Shane Campbell brought the Cowboy Church message.
Photographer Gary Cox took a lot of photos of the classes on Saturday, braving the cold outdoor arena and enjoying the warm indoor arena. Gary and his wife Carol are regular contributors of photos to this publication and they generously share them with people at the shows that they photograph.
