The show was done by the Walnut Wylde Wryders which are the horse farm’s youth members and is an annual event at the Shelby County horse farm and it is used as a fund raiser to raise money for charity.  Approximately $400 was raised from the event, and it will be donated to either a therapeutic riding center, or perhaps even some sort of community service project within the local area.

All in all, the event received big accolades from the participants, and the attendees that got to enjoy the event.
