DEXTER - North Country Riding Club held their 1st horse show of the 2009 season on a perfect Sunday, June 7th and riding coming from all over Central & Northern Maine with Judge Sherri Thornton. The near perfect weather conditions was only interrupted by “lots of dust” which the Dexter Fire Department tried to tame at NCRC's noon break by watering down the ring.
The show opened with the new 2009 Nokomis graduate & NCRC member Crystal Clukey and her brother Thomas playing the Star Spangle Banner on their trumpets. The day continued with many spectators coming throughout the day to watch the show and also to enjoy food provided by CPB Food Wagon of Bradford & the guys selling ice-cream, plus Dottie from Blanket Works selling handmade horse blankets, banners and more.
Over 45 riders participated, plus the grooms class, during the Equitation Show with 38 Classes focusing on everything from halter classes, English & Western classes to Lead Line for the youngest rider, draft / draft-cross halter classes, jumping and carriage classes.
