Jackson, MS – The Dixie National Quarter Horse Show is a wrap with large classes and fun had by all. The show started on February 8th and 9th with the Equestrian With Disabilities events. All of the participants had a great time, and a lot of new friends were made. We are grateful to our sponsors, volunteers and exhibitors who made this portion of our show a success.

Our fourth CC Dubois Memorial Tie Down Roping was held, sponsored by Elite Custom Saddlery generously donated custom halters and portfolios to the winners of every roping class at the horse show. This is the fifth year in which Elite Custom Saddlery has donated the Andrew McBeath Memorial High Point Cattle Horse saddle, which was awarded to Bobby Lewis and J Lows Glow owned by Larry & Denice Bledsoe.
