2016 Woodford County Fair Horse Show

While the official opening for the Woodford County Fair is Monday, June 20, on Friday, June 10, pre-fair events got underway.

One of the most enjoyable pre-fair events that took place on Friday was the Arabian and Open Pleasure Horse Show, which was held in the Horse Show Ring. There were a number of strong participants and beautiful horses at this year’s show, everyone seemed to have a great time. Here are just a few of the horses and riders that participated in this year’s show.
