Although last year’s show
drew some of the finest horses
ever exhibited in Blowing Rock,
the board of directors decided
that the Broyhill Park facilities,
had served as long as they could
be expected to, and decided to re
design the grounds completely.
The area has been landscaped
and spruced mp in igeneral, in
cluding a roof for the 600-seat
grandstand. Completely new
boxes, built in double tiers for an
unobstructed view of i:oth show'f
rings and the outside course, will
seat another 700 spectators.
There will be unusually con-
venieint parking, with parking
attendants available. Horse-
drawn jitneys will take specta
tors back and forth from the
parking lots to the show area.
An added attraction for mule
adioiirers will be Bert and Molly,
a brother and sister team of
paint mules belonging to Horse
Show president C. V. Henkel of
Statesville^ Bert and Molly, who
are 9 and 10 years old respective
ly, will pull one of the jitneys
serving the parking lots. Chil
dren should especially enjoy‘Bert,
who greets people with a great
deal of enthusiastic hee-hawing.
Another attraction for children
will be the stage coach that
originally ran from Blowing
Rock to Linville. 'The coach will
also be used for transportation
around the grounds.
All new construction was
planned to make the show as
convenient as possible for exhi
bitors as well as spectators. A
permanent central stable in
cludes deluxe stalls for 36 horses,
with a 25-sfall annex. The cen
tral stable 'also has dormitories
for grooms, wa.sh area, central
tack room, kitchen and an apart
ment for the manager, Mrs.
Charles G'oggi of Waxhaw. Con
struction is well under way on
an additional 200 permanent
stalls, arranged on a hillside in
rows of 40 each.
