In its early years, the event would take place in the town district behind the school and old library. It truly was a community and social event, rich in tradition and southern charm. Like most small-town experiences, a place where families, children and friends would come together to enjoy the day and each
other’s company. Homemade baked goods and crafts were brought in
to share. Delicious Chuckwagon style meals were provided for the
enthusiastic crowds and participants. Music, dancing, and singing
featured by local groups and bands were enjoyed by all. For the sporting
event itself, both horse and riders were all tested and measured for
their skills and style. Starting in the early morning hours, it would
continue thru out the day and into the dark of night. Truly a community
event guaranteed to excite and be remembered!
Time continues its march and as with everything, evolution is inevitable.
The Jamestown Rotary Horseshow for the past several years has been
an active partner with The Piedmont Horseman’s Association (PHA).
Ring trials have been taking place at the Piedmont Saddle Club located
in Colfax, NC. The Horse Show, as a sporting event is now sanctioned by
The PHA and competes regionally. All participants are engaged in
competition and judged. Families and breeders throughout the region
bring out their best to compete for class points and awards, starting
with the very young beginners up to those riders who are more skilled
and seasoned. A Great time is enjoyed by all.
