Bill Maack Memorial Charity Horse Show to raise funds for Bosom Buddies


The 17th Annual Bill Maack Memorial Charity Horse Show will be starting at 6:30 p.m. on
Saturday, Sept. 17 at the Bolivar Saddle Club Area, located just east of the Highway 13 & 32

This show is held as a memorial to Bill Maack, a longtime Tennessee Walking Horse trainer in
Polk County. Mr. Maack trained and showed horses for over 50 years all over the country.

We also remember his wife, Mae Maack, and daughter, Jennifer Maack-Condren, who also were
active in showing horses for many years.

The event serves as a benefit for the Bosom Buddies of Halfway. This wonderful group of ladies
raises money to be donated to a number of charities and needs in Polk and surrounding counties.

Some of the proceeds benefit House of Hope, Polk County Humane Society, various holiday and
school needs, plus many more.

The Bosom Buddies will be providing a lot of delicious food in the cookshack. They will feature
their famous “fried taters & onions,” burgers and a variety of homemade pies.

Featured in the show will be the Tennessee Walking Horse at its finest, showing in English,
western and halter to show the versatility of the walking horse.

There will be classes for the professional trainer, amateur and youth riders, as well as stick horse
and leadline class for future riders.

Missouri Fox Trot classes will also be included in the show.

A beautiful blue and white handmade quilt has been donated to raffle to benefit the Bosom
Buddies. The quilt was made by Trudie Kelly and Florence Brown (both longtime friends of the
Maack family).

Raffle tickets may be purchased from any of the Bosom Buddies or at the show. The drawing
will be held at the show.
