RALEIGH, N.C. - The North Carolina State Fair was held during Oct. 8-21, 2007, featuring all breeds and disciplines including Arabians, Walking Horses, Paso Finos, hunters, mules and donkeys. The Saddlebreds, Morgans, Hackneys and roadsters normally hold court the beginning of the week on Wednesday evening and running through Saturday evening during the last week of the fair.


This year management decided to move the Arabians from earlier in the week and mix those classes among the Saddlebreds, Morgans, Hackneys and roadsters, making for three sessions a day on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. The schedule closed out on Saturday evening with an expected long schedule of 32 classes.  One issue that this show continues to have to deal with other than the long schedules is the fireworks every evening. While they are magnificent to watch, they are loud and echo through the arena and barns making the majority of the horses very nervous. The show does everything possible to have the evening session over before the 9:45 p.m. start which means sometimes the classes seemed hurried. But with safety at a possible risk it is a fair tradeoff since the horse show has no voice in the overall fair policies.


Marking the end of the season for most barns, exhibitors came from all over the Carolinas, Virginias and Tennessee to compete. The Saddlebred exhibitors and trainers from the Carolinas and Tennessee had extra incentive again this year as the ASHA Atlantic Regional Championships were held.  The show is also a draw for the Hackney exhibitors as the Southeastern Hackney Futurity classes are held here.


The show is a fun-filled family event and when you are not busy at the show you can walk to over to the fair. This year exhibitors carried the family theme for the show a step further as generation after generation earned titles and top ribbons. Matt Shiflet, a third generation trainer was back garnering titles from five-gaited, park and fine harness divisions. Mother-daughter team Barbara and Megan Barrett both finished their season with Barbara sweeping the amateur three-gaited and Megan earning the reserve championship junior exhibitor five-gaited title. Another successful mother-daughter team, Dori and Bree Zandy, represented Cameo Stables well showing Charming Dreams and The Apprentice respectively. Sisters Emory and Susannah Sykes, Mary and Harry Daughtry’s nieces, both earned titles aboard JAJ Caprioles Sir Walter. Payton Shiflet and Anna Hansil, second and third generations respectively, both earned top ribbons in the academy division. Mother-son team Luanne Kilday and Jeb Boyd dominated the western country pleasure division, earning the top two spots in the championship. Father and son training team Steve and Sam Allred showed off their talents in the five-gaited and fine harness divisions. For the Hackneys, mother-daughter Lee and Anna Hudson made victory passes with Night Editor and Rhett respectively.


Probably the most winning family was the family of Mr. and Mrs. C.W. Myers with second, third and fourth generations showing this week. What made this even more special is that each team made at least one trip to the winner’s circle including Blake Crim in the academy division, Brenda Kelly with Cappuccino in the amateur road pony qualifier and championship, Dustin Lassett in the Junior Exhibitor Road Pony class with Doing Time, Jean Myers in the Five-Gaited Show Pleasure Championship with CH Callaway’s No Problem, Wendy Myers in the open pleasure pony driving qualifier and championship with Bandelero, Tanner Parham in the Junior Exhibitor Road Pony Championship with Seamair’s Nobility and Allie Wellington in the junior exhibitor five-gaited show pleasure qualifier and championship with CH MMMBop.




For the third year in a row Lewis Eckard has had the top horse in the coveted Five-Gaited Championship. For the past two years he was aboard Rebekah Cloninger’s CH Dusty Beau. This year however he rode the flashy dapple grey Fog. Eckard masterfully piloted Fog into the winner’s circle for proud owner Becky Brown Rankin. Earlier in the week the team won the limit qualifier.


Lewis Eckard and Fog


Matt Shiflet is back in the Carolinas with a nice string of horses. One of those horses is Red Hot And Bothered. Probably best known for her world’s champion wins with Gabriella Flynn this bold moving mare seems to have been off the radar for a while but now with Shiflet in the irons she was easily moving from gait to gait, garnering the reserve championship title after an earlier reserve in the open qualifier. Eckard also made the victory pass in the Novice Five-Gaited class with Lois Roberson’s Wasabi with reserve going to Iconium and Steve Allred. Shiflet was back in the limit class giving Eckard a run for his money aboard the flashy I’m Fantabulous, earning another reserve for Beth Ann Rhoads.


In the junior class it was battle of the Shiflets with Matt and Suzy Shiflet along with Randy Cole making a run for the top prize. Matt Shiflet had the dynamic Anadon’s Ruth in top form. A star last year in harness, she easily made the move to the gaited division with a win at Lexington. Then the Phi Slama Jama daughter went back to harness earning a top ribbon in the junior mare class. She was back this week in the gaited division fluid in her gaits to capture the blue for owners and breeders Carl and Monty Hess. Suzy Shiflet presented Lineshare Farm owned and bred Tornaado Man to the reserve with Randy Cole rounding out the top three with Lady Drifter who is owned and bred by Louise Allen’s All-Well Farm.


For the second year in a row the Amateur Five-Gaited Championship honor went back with a Boone’s Farm team. Last year Ima Star-Buck and Julie Burmeister earned the top spot. This year the bright Startalyst with Ann Cannon claimed the tricolor with a comeback ride from their earlier performance. Ima Star-Buck and Burmeister would not be out of the ribbons though as they had two great performances, winning the ladies and the open qualifiers. Sara Scheck put a ride on Judy Megelich’s Ventura’s Gold Card. The sporty horse never put a foot or ear out of place with Scheck in the irons, capturing the ladies reserve in their only appearance. Oscar De La Hoya and Stacy Halloran had a huge ride with great passes at the rack, earning the reserve championship honor. Winning the amateur qualifier in their debut performance was Apollo Gold and Ginger Roseman. This team returned with a solid performance in the championship, garnering the yellow streamers. Not A Moment Too Soon and Melanie Carroll took home the amateur qualifying reserve.


Boone’s Farm continued its success with two great rides by Ali Deutsch aboard Leatherwood’s Hats Off. Deutsch rode hard aboard the high-headed bay to sweep the junior exhibitor division. Megan Barrett has been getting to know Got The Ticket all season and on Saturday night all the work paid off as she had a powerful ride to capture the reserve championship. The charismatic and powerful team of The Apprentice and Bree Zandy loved the big ring, making killer passes to earn the qualifying reserve.

For the second year in a row Small Packages and Camille Cowart turned in two great rides to sweep the five-gaited pony division. It was a bitter sweet win as Small Packages heads to Florida with her new owner. Both reserve honors went to The Jazz Commander and Jackie Frame.




Topping the Three-Gaited Championship was the toppy Sublime Light with Jackie Leon presenting for Mr. and Mrs. Larry Young. Earlier in the week this team won the ladies qualifier for the second year in a row. Receiving the red ribbon in the ladies qualifier and the junior/novice qualifier was Designed A Prince Of Dreams with Marlene Thornton for Kay Willis. In their only appearance Champagne’s China Doll and Peter Cowart won the open qualifier for Little Cahaba Properties. Bubble Bath and Jamie Mullins topped the Junior/Novice Three-Gaited class for the Banner/Simpkins partners. They returned having a great show in the open championship only to throw a shoe the first direction that could not be repaired.


Barbara Barrett had a great week. Not only did she get to watch her daughter have a great show but she enjoyed some of the spotlight too. Riding the multi-titled Soulmate, Barrett had two stellar rides to sweep the amateur three-gaited division. Earning both reserve titles were Periaptor’s Dancing Star and Dr. Teresa Miller.

Meghan Toms had two nice rides sweeping the three-gaited pony division with Tammy and Anna Grace Whitworth’s Attaché Allure.




Matt Shiflet continued his success in the park division. One of the newest additions to his show string is Shamrock’s Asagi.  Bred by Vickie Keatley and Jennie Graham, by their beloved Shamrock Santana and out of a Harlem Globetrotter mare, this talented chestnut never put an ear back as he marched down the rail for Shiflet, sweeping the open qualifier and championship. Cydney Rae Cutchall was aboard the toppy Cybertown, moving up a notch to earn the reserve championship honor. Reserve in the qualifier went to the All-Well Farm owned and bred First Asset with Lewis Eckard.

CH Woulda Coulda Shoulda and Aimee Austin have been a force over the years in this arena no matter the division, equitation or performance. They ended their season with two tremendous performances, sweeping the amateur park division. CH Callaway’s B Gratz Brown and Karin Banks had comeback ride, capturing the reserve championship title. CH Our Silver Charm and George Anne Nash switched divisions this week claiming the reserve in the qualifier in their first park performance.

The harness division is usually light but this week the qualifier had five nice entries with four returning in the championship. Sweeping the division was the lofty trotting Elegant Dreamcatcher. Just a three-year-old, the flashy Attaché’s Royal Assets daughter was presented by Matt Shiflet for the owner/breeder and his grandfather, Claude Shiflet.  So Unique made her first appearance in the show ring with Krista Dent at Blue Ridge and last month in this arena earned the reserve championship title in the harness championship. This week this mare continued to gain momentum, earning another reserve championship title for owner Dr. Brian Garrett. Last year’s winner, Lady O’Lydia, earned the qualifying reserve with Sam Allred on the lines for his dad, Steve Allred, in their only appearance.

There was the huge fan club near the gate, rider Luanne Kilday, owner Mary Jane Lewis and trainer Paul Joyner all cheered when the winner was called.
