The OPEA Gold River Classic Memorial Day Circuit will get under way this weekend at the Grady County Fairgrounds. Exhibitors from seven states will compete for 11 High Point Awards and three Stake Classes: Trail, Hunter Under Saddle and Western Pleasure.

According to the Palomino Horse Association, the Palomino has come down through the pages of history. Known as the golden horse with ivory-colored mane and tail, the Palomino is a multi-purpose horse. They are admired not only for their beauty but for their versatility, maneuverability, and endurance. They are to be found in ranching, racing, rodeos, pleasure riding, parades, shows, fiestas, jumping, trail rides, and all other equine activities. We even have a few movie stars including, Mr. Ed, Trigger, and Trigger, Jr., which were registered with The Palomino Horse Association.

Classes begin each day, Saturday through Monday at 8:30 a.m. Admission is free and open to the public. While attending the show you will want to take time to visit with vendors offering leather goods and clothing.
