On Sunday, April 2, this tradition will continue with the 108th Camden Horse Show to be held at Dale Thiel Stables, Firetower Road, Camden, beginning at 9 a.m., rain or shine.

Classes are open to children and adults and will include classes over fences and on the flat with classes for green hunters, working hunters, handy hunters and classes on the outside course.

The S. C. Clyburn Class, one of the highlights of this show, is open only to horses that have hunted 6 or more times this past season. The horses jump a course of jumps like those found in hunt country including logs, coops and fallen trees.
