      Horse Show takes over Marquette County Fairgrounds

      Some horsing around took place in Sands Township this past weekend. An Upper Peninsula Horsemen's Association horse show was held last weekend at the Marquette County Fairgrounds.

      Sponsored by the Great Lakes Rodeo and the POSSE 4-H club, the show attracted quite a few spectators and competitors. Last weekend's show included a wide variety of classes.

      "They do halter classes, trail classes, lead line for the youngers kids, they also have western pleasure and english pleasure and all of those, and then they also have a speed show. So there's a lot going on," said Rebbecca Wells.

      A number of these shows are held during the summer throughout the U.P. It is free for spectators to attend.

      Many of the competitors there were gearing up for the Great Lakes Rodeo taking place June 13-15 at the fairgrounds.
