Nation's longest running horse show comes to Texoma

ARDMORE, Okla. (KXII)-- A unique horse show has come to the Hardy Murphy Coliseum through Sunday.

The 9th Annual Feathered Horse Spring Classic is taking place at the Hardy Murphy Coliseum in Ardmore this weekend.

Show owner Gail Shrine says its the biggest and longest running horse series in the U.S., and showcases the gypsy horse breed.

Over 65 horses and 80 competitors from all over the United States gather to qualify for the annual national championship, held in January of next year.

This includes Rod and Gun Club Stables, a local Ardmore farm that is competing with three Gypsy Vanner horses.

"My favorite thing is a Liberty Class, where they get to run and just be a free spirit and really show their personalities through their actions and their motions," Rod and Gun Club owner Samantha Crook said. "They have the long manes and the long tail and they're just beautiful. I really enjoy just looking,"

The event is free to the public, and goes from 8 to 5 every day this weekend.
