In the second of three shows this summer sponsored by the Washington County Horse Council, more than 80 riders gathered this past Saturday to compete in 11 divisions of classes at the Washington County Agricultural Education Center. The show began with "in-hand" classes, where horses were led before Judge John Mitchell and ended with a series of timed races such as barrels and poles. A second judge, Laura Stoner, was kept busy evaluating riders over a series of trail obstacles set up in a wooded patch outside the ring.

WILLIAMSON, PA. chambersburg@herald-mail.com It would be impossible to know whether horses feel embarrassment the way humans do, but Abigail Pugh's horse was looking a little sheepish Sunday at the Youth Horse Show at the Franklin County Fair. The 5-year-old miniature horse was swathed in cotton mimicking wool as it played the lamb to 6-year-old Abigail's Mary in the junior division of the costume competition. The costumes were good enough for the Greencastle, Pa., girl to earn second place.
