2015 Farmington Fall Horse Show October 24th
I would like to thank Tom and Claiborne Bishop for their generous donation of the Barracks facility. Without their support this show would not be possible.

Preparations for the Farmington Fall Horse show begins in June. The prize list is a major part of the production including the advertisements that accompany it. I want to thank Beth Sutton, Elizabeth Brann and Mark Thompson for taking on the responsibility of the ads for the prize list. Without their expertise on this task I would be lost.
The week or two before the horse show: Robin Lundgren asked for volunteers to help paint the many poles and standards for the horse show, Stephen Bickers, Muffin Barnes, Becky Barlow, Kim and Chris Middleton, Evie Cowles, Ann Horner, Elizabeth Brann and family and several youngsters accompanied her, Robin Lundgren and myself.
Horse Show Day: Co-manager Robin Lundgren! I couldn’t manage this show without her! Secretary, Drew Perkins all day and announcer, Stephen Bickers. Trophies were done by Anne Grachus and the ribbons were handled by Ann Horner and Karen Bull. Working the In-gate, Evie Cowles, Kay Barquin and Molly Duncan. Jump Crew, Kip Holloway, Kim Morton, Sally Powers, and Nancy Howell.
The horse show party put on by Liz King and Cathy Robb was fantastic and I could NEVER could put that all together, they do such a wonderful job, every year!!!!
Bob Haschart, Karen Bull and Robin Lundgren for all the wonderful photos.
I want to thank everyone for their participation; dedication and volunteering their time in helping make this horse show a success each and every year. There are a lot of small and large parts to all of it from sponsoring classes to sponsoring the party and all the work that goes into it. We had 94 entries this year and we ended at midnight! It was a long day and night but fun was had by all.
With Thanks, Mary Harp
