The 2015 Logan County Fair got underway on Saturday with the Horse Show at the Logan County Ag arena.

The large campus around the Logan County Ag Center was packed with cars and trucks, horse trailers, and riders on horses, as competition got underway.

Show promoter Tammy Robertson said that this year’s show, the third at this location, was the biggest and best yet. “We had 482 entries from several states,” she said. She explained that the recent rains in the area caused some shows to cancel or postpone their outdoor events. “This may have added to the number of entries,” she said, “but it was still better than we expected.”

Horses and riders in the competition visited Logan County from several different states including Tennessee, Indiana, Alabama and Missouri, and Texas. And there were several from all over Kentucky and a few from Logan County as well.

Ms. Robertson has a love for horses and began promoting these events a few years ago. She hopes to start a winter series of shows. These shows would run October through March and no doubt would be very popular. Ms. Robertson and all that participated in last weekend’s event were very pleased with indoor facility at the Logan County Ag Center. All involved would be hoping that these winter shows would be at the Logan County Ag Center Arena.

Ms. Robertson hopes to return next year at Fair Time for another show. Hopes would be that the 2016 show would be even bigger, as word gets around in the horse community of the success of events here in Logan County.

While individual results from the event were not available at press-time (we hope to follow-up with that information on-line at http://newsdemocratleader.com), the overall result of the event was a very successful and entertaining start to the 2015 Logan County Fair.
