Horse show nearly a go

Final preparations are underway for The Shelbyville Horse Show, which kicks off Wednesday night and runs through Saturday.

Organizers say the 27th annual horse show will draw thousands each night for both the show and the fun, fellowship and food on the sidelines.

“We expect as good or a better show than ever,” said R.H. Bennett, the Shelbyville Horse Show manager.

Gates open at 6 p.m. each day, with the show starting at 7 p.m. More than 300 horses are expected to compete in nearly 60 classes over the 4-day period.
