JD Massey News and Events

The JD Massey Classic Horse Show is planning another stellar event for its 76th Annual show April 15-18, 2009. In its ongoing crusade to make the exhibitor "Number One", the Board has planned something fun for each day of the show.

On Wednesday morning, Grant Shiflet will hold the traditional Horseman’s Prayer Breakfast to get things rolling with a little bit of inspiration. Wednesday evening will see the return of the ever-popular Hunt Foundation Shrimp ‘n’ Grits Gathering. The UPHA Chapter 12 1st Annual Butt-Kickin’ Bowl Lickin’ Soon-To-Be-Famous Chili Cook-Off in conjunction with JD Massey’s Tex-Mex night on Thursday evening will be a new addition to the week. If your barn would like to participate by sharing your favorite secret recipe chili, contact Beverly Shiflet (336.953.2053) for details. All you need is a crock pot and ingredients. We’ll supply the rest! Prizes – still undisclosed – are involved! Friday evening will be the Exhibitor Appreciation Dinner. Come dine and unwind with your friends.

The JD Massey Museum is back! The memorabilia from the celebration of last year’s 75th anniversary returns with all the great memories from last year and new additions as well. If you would like to contribute some of your own memories, contact Cynthia Kelly. (864. 918.4393 or
