2017 Woodford County Fair Horse Show
On Saturday, June 10, the Woodford County Fair opened pre-fair activities with its annual Pleasure Show, where owners/riders compete in different classes to showcase their horses’ talents. This year there were 20 classes scheduled for the Pleasure Show, but only half of the classes were held. This year’s big winner was Ellington King and her horse, Ruby. King, who graduated from Woodford County High School this year and was a member of the tennis team, won four of the classes.
