WNC Agricultural Center Event: Annual Blue Ridge Classic Horse Show

World Championships Bound


Outdoor temps may be a little cooler this weekend, but things are certainly hot at the WNC Ag Center in Fletcher.


Top-notch horse and rider teams from around the country will be showing through Saturday night at the 22nd annual Blue Ridge Classic Horse Show. American Saddlebreds, Morgans and Friesians compete for top prizes in this summer classic.


William Shatner (yup – Captain Kirk,) a big Saddlebred enthusiast owns and shows some of the best horses in the industry. While not seen “with the reins” in his hands in the past year, he was spotted in the stands, rooting on one in his stable. (I know this to be fact, as I was the one - sitting beside him, acting “cool as a cucumber” – spotting him!) But sure to be here, there will be an elite core of prior and contending World Champions!


The WNC Ag Center is located at 1301 Fanning Bridge Rd, Fletcher, NC 28732.
