Blowing Rock Horse Show
During this year’s 98th consecutive Blowing Rock Horse Show, the main ring at the L. M. Tate Show Grounds will be dedicated to the memory of Sallie and Kenny Wheeler of Keswick, VA.
The Wheelers loved their times in Blowing Rock and supported the horse show for decades. From their home base at Cismont Manor Farm in Keswick, Sallie competed in both Saddlebred and Hunter Divisions while Kenny dominated the Hunter ring with a consistent string of talented Green Conformation and Working Hunters. The couple showed throughout the United States, and at one time or another won every major championship in their various competitive divisions. Kenny’s success extended into the Breeding Division where he clinched the Best Young Horse Award thirty-four times at the prestigious Devon Horse Show.
